The Miami Dolphins had their second day of minicamp and it should not be surprising that Conner Williams was absent again. The Dolphins center would like a contract extension after signing a two-year deal last offseason. He performed very well in his transition from guard to center and would like some financial security.

After exceeding expectations in his first year under Mike McDaniel, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa appears to be more comfortable with a year under his belt. The expectations for this Dolphins team is through the roof and they are only going to go as far as Tua can take them. He needs to be able to stay healthy to give this team a chance to make a deep postseason run.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
