    Jonathan Martin will stand trial after Instagram threat he made to ex-Dolphins teammates

    Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin will have to stand trial on criminal charges after a threatening post he made on Instagram last year, a Los Angeles judge ruled Thursday. Martin, who played tackle for the Dolphins in 2012 and 2013, posted a photograph last year of a shotgun and ammunition with a caption reading, “When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge.” He tagged four accounts belonging to former Miami teammates Richie Incognito, Mike Pouncey, the Dolphins and Harvard-Westlake, the Studio City, California, high school from which Martin graduated in 2008. The school shut down for the day when Martin posted the message and Incognito fled

    Kyler Murray to Dolphins? Here's who mock drafts have Miami selecting

    Don't get your hopes up too early, Miami Dolphins fans. The Dolphins, who have signaled for a franchise rebuild, could be in line to select one of the most coveted quarterbacks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The draft may be three months away, but there will be no shortage of draft speculation until teams finally make their draft selections beginning on April 25. Here's a good place to start: ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has the Dolphins drafting Oklahoma star quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 13 pick, according to his first official mock draft released Thursday. “Murray possesses unreal speed and he can make every throw,” Kiper said. “He's undersized at the position though at only 5-9, and with his build.

    'Dolfan Maniac' Is A Finalist For “Hall Of Fans”

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – He is loud, energetic and the life of the party. Since 1994 Roger Avila aka 'Dolfan Maniac' has been a permanent fixture at all of the Miami Dolphins' games. You can't miss on the sideline, in the crowd and of course with the fans. “I never turn down a picture, I love to give hugs,” he said. Avila loves the Dolphins and the Dolphins love him so much they nominated him to the Pro Football Ford Hall of Fans. Avila said was none other than his favorite player, Dan Marino, who surprised him with the news. “I'm in la-la land, I was so giddy, he brought out the kid in me it was a dream come true. I am so thankful for that day,” said Avila. Avila is among six nominees vying for the

    The Splash Zone 1/17/19: Dolphins Rebuild Conundrum

    Reports state that the Dolphins are entering a rebuild mode and would like to draft one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2020 draft. The team is eyeing a top 10 pick which means this team is gonna have to be pretty bad this upcoming season. Ryan Tannehill is expected to be on a new team in the coming months, which would leave the Dolphins with David Fales, Luke Falk, and Jake Rudock. If the team were to enter the season with these three, it's fairly obvious the team is tanking. The team is looking towards the future and that's great. But fans would be calling for Brian Flores' head after a bad season and the man deserves a chance to bring winning football back to Miami. You can check out

    Brian Flores must hit ground running with Dolphins to address these roster issues

    When Brian Flores eventually agrees to a contract that makes him the Miami Dolphins coach (assuming he didn't graduate from the Josh McDaniels school of backing out) he's going to have a lot of things on his plate almost immediately. He's going to have to hire a coaching staff. He's going to have to get acclimated and up to speed with the Dolphins' 2018 strengths and weaknesses and decide how to accentuate the one and smooth over the other. He's going to have to come to understand what general manager Chris Grier wants to do with the players left on the roster and the two men will have to collaborate so the Dolphins have a plan moving forward. And obviously sometime in there he's going to be

    Dolphins' 2018 rookie class could give them promise for the future

    With the Dolphins sudden urge to get younger and rebuild for the future, the team will be hoping to hit on a few of their picks during the upcoming draft. However, their 2018 draft class will give them a good foundation for the future. Both Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jerome Baker made an immediate impact during the 2018 season. They also received contributions from running back Kalen Ballage and Jason Sanders. The Dolphins will hope tight ends Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe can make a big jump in their play next year. When the team fired Adam Gase on Dec. 31, the Dolphins owner Stephen Ross made it known the team will rely on younger players through the draft instead of signing high priced free agents

    Miami Dolphins beat writer dismisses Colin Kaepernick, says Satan would be better quarterback

    Talk about a hot take. A Miami Dolphins beat writer was slammed on social media Tuesday for saying he'd rather have Satan as the next Dolphins quarterback instead of free agent Colin Kaepernick. Armando Salguero, who writes for the Miami Herald, made the remark after he was asked whether Kaepernick would be a good “stop-gap” option before next year's draft class. Salguero's tweet drew heavy criticism on Twitter. “Wow, what a disgraceful comment. You fit this team perfectly,” one person wrote in response to Salguero's tweet. “And many of us would prefer objective reporting, Armando,” another person wrote. “Good day.” Salguero, who is Cuban, explained in a later tweet he had “no love” for Kaepernick

    Bob Kuechenberg Dies at 71; Former OL During Dolphins' Perfect Season in 1972

    Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Bob Kuechenberg, a six-time Pro Bowler and member of the Dolphins' perfect 1972 season, died Saturday. He was 71. Kuechenberg appeared in 196 career games, making 176 starts, and many of them through injury, as Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post outlined: "'Kooch,' as teammates called him, once played an entire game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a broken ankle. After the game, he was carried off the field and taken to the hospital. He played the 1977 season with a broken back. And he played Super Bowl VIII, lining up against Minnesota Vikings great Alan Page, despite a fractured forearm wrapped in a cast and a foam pad." His former head coach, Don Shula,

    Even if you are skeptical of Adam Gase, Sam Darnold should do really well in his offense

    Are you bummed about the Jets hiring Adam Gase? Trying to talk yourself into this but find yourself unable to do so? I know how you feel. This article goes out to you. There probably isn't much you can say that would convince me Adam Gase is the right hire for the Jets. It will take more than words. It will take more than one win. It will take more than one winning streak. It will even take more than one good year. When the Jets are a perennial winner, and coaching is moving the needle in a positive direction, I will be convinced. But that doesn't mean the hire lacks any redeeming qualities. In fact, I think some of the flaws I saw in the search process actually might have created fertile ground

    5 potential Dolphins stopgap QBs for 2019

    Regardless of whether the Miami Dolphins truly intend to rebuild or not, the likelihood is that Ryan Tannehill will be moving on to a fresh start, either through trade or just to be released to save money. As a result, the Dolphins will need a stopgap guy for the 2019 season at the very least to keep up appearances and pretend they're not doing the dreaded “tanking” word. Make no mistake, there are options out there who can quickly step in and keep the quarterback position warm for the inevitable draftee who will hopefully step in and bring the Dolphins back to NFL relevancy. Formerly a starter for the Buffalo Bills from 2015-17, the mobile Taylor, who was voted into the Pro Bowl in 2015, last played this season as the original starter for the Cleveland Browns, while Hue Jackson was still the head coach.

    The 2019 Miami Dolphins quarterback room: Good is bad and bad is good

    Mere minutes after Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson told reporters Carson Wentz is the team's starting quarterback moving forward, the speculation about Nick Foles going to a new team began. Foles this season helped guide the Eagles to a 5-2 record, including a playoff victory, before the fairy tale ended with a divisional round loss in New Orleans on Sunday. Foles replaced the injured Wentz and it lifted the Eagles to those playoffs when it seemed they weren't headed in that direction at all. Foles was also the hero of Philadelphia's improbable Super Bowl championship chase a year ago. “Carson is the quarterback going forward,” Pederson told reporters at his end-of-season news conference.

    Dolphins spoke with a couple of QBs during Shrine Game week

    It is no secret the Miami Dolphins are in search of quarterback help after it appears they're finally ready to go in a new direction at the position. After seven seasons, the Dolphins are expected to part ways with Ryan Tannehill this offseason, probably before the start of the new league year in March. On Monday down in St. Petersburg, Fla. during Shrine Game practices, the Dolphins interviewed a couple of young quarterback prospects and one of them has a familiar last name. According to Trevor Sikkema of Pewter Report and Draft NetworkLLC, the Dolphins spoke with Boise State's Brett Rypien and Ole Miss' Jordan Ta'amu. Rypien, the nephew of former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien, was Boise State's

    Dolphins' Xavien Howard, Jason Sanders honored by Pro Football Writers of America

    Miami Dolphins standout cornerback Xavien Howard and rookie kicker Jason Sanders were both honored this week by the Pro Football Writers of America for their performance during the 2018 NFL season. Howard, the third-year cornerback who was arguably the Dolphins' best player this past season, was named to the PFWA All-AFC team on Monday. Howard, a Pro Bowl starter, finished the regular season tied for the league lead with seven interceptions despite missing the final four games to recover from a meniscus injury in his left knee. No Dolphins players were recognized on PFWA's All-NFL team, as Howard was passed over by Kyle Fuller and Stephon Gilmore at the cornerback position. Fuller also had seven

    Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer Close Covered the Broncos for two seasons with the Denver Post Graduate of the University of Houston A native of Jackson, Miss. Follow on Twitter MIAMI -- The 2019 Miami Dolphins are unlikely to be playoff contenders -- that much has been made clear in the weeks since the firing of coach Adam Gase. For a Dolphins team mired in mediocrity and set to hire its fourth head coach this decade, rebuilding seems like a wise choice to eventually become a championship contender. Fans should see that path as a bright light to a potentially golden end. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that the Dolphins are thinking about rebuilding and trying to land one of
