  Dolphins | Charlie Frye is new QB coach    Sat Jan 23, 02:05 PM

Central Michigan offensive coordinator Charlie Frye on Saturday, Jan. 23, was announced as the Miami Dolphins' new quarterbacks coach. In a corresponding move, the Dolphins announced they've parted ways with quarterbacks coach Robby Brown.

Footballguys view: Frye is a former NFL quarterback and he was an athletic passer who could make plays on the run. We'll see how he works with Tua Tagovailoa in his second season.

  Dolphins | Miami could cut three wideouts    Thu Jan 21, 02:55 AM

Miami Dolphins WRs Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Allen Hurns are all potential cap casualties, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins could have a new-look WR corps in 2021. We'd expect them to try and upgrade the position and get more playmakers in the room besides DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.

  Dolphins | Deshaun Watson open to trade to Miami?    Sun Jan 10, 12:32 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract but may consider a trade to the Miami Dolphins if he decides to push the Texans to move him, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That clause means the Texans cannot just send Watson to the highest bidder. They'll have to work to find Watson a place that he wants to go, and that could be with the Dolphins for a trade that would include Tua Tagovailoa. We think it's too soon for the Dolphins to bail on Tagovailoa, but getting Watson would be an upgrade for a team on the rise. The more information that comes out, the more it looks like Watson's relationship with the Texans is done. Stay tuned.

  Dolphins | Marvin Jones a FA option for Miami?    Thu Jan 7, 08:37 PM

Detroit Lions free-agent WR Marvin Jones is expected to have interest in the Miami Dolphins if they decide to pursue him during free agency, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jones will have plenty of suitors in free agency. With WR Kenny Golladay missing most of the 2020 season, Jones secured 76 catches for 978 yards and nine receiving touchdowns. He's excited to test the market and the Dolphins could use a veteran like him to add talent to the wide receiver room.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick unlikely to return?    Thu Jan 7, 07:58 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's chances of returning to the team next season are 'slim and none,' according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick will be on to spread his magic somewhere else in 2021. Plenty of teams will want him as a 'bridge' quarterback to a future starter.

  Dolphins | Chan Gailey resigns    Wed Jan 6, 09:20 AM

Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Chan Gailey resigned Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: There were reports about Gailey getting fired but it turns out he's just headed back to retirement. The Dolphins are once again looking for a new offensive coordinator. The new OC will have a potential franchise quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa to work with and a smattering of weapons around him. We'll see if the Dolphins look outside the building or look on their own staff for a guy like RBs coach Eric Studesville.

  Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa locked in as 2021 starter    Tue Jan 5, 03:06 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to general manager Chris Greer, who reiterated Tuesday, Jan. 5, that the organization is 'happy with his development.'

Footballguys view: Tagovailoa had an up-and-down rookie season. He certainly showed flashes of a franchise quarterback and looks to have tremendous upside. The Dolphins dealt with a lot of injuries this year to the players around Tagovailoa and that caused some of his struggles. We're excited to see what his future holds in the NFL.

  Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick non-committal about 2021    Mon Jan 4, 11:28 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be among the team's unrestricted free agents this offseason, is likely to be asked to return. However, the 38-year-old has been non-committal about whether he wants to play in the 2021 season.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick will have a few suitors if he chooses to play in 2021. He can still be a good starter or a 'bridge' quarterback for a team with a young quarterback who is not yet ready.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard reaches rare milestone    Mon Jan 4, 01:09 AM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard matched a single-season franchise record with his 10th interception in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills, tying the mark set by Dick Westmoreland in 1967. Howard's 10 interceptions are also the most by any NFL player since Antonio Cromartie had that many with the then-San Diego Chargers in 2007.

  Dolphins | Miami roughed up in finale at Buffalo    Sun Jan 3, 05:11 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 35-of-58 passes for 361 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions while running for 28 yards in a 56-26 loss at Buffalo in Week 17. RB Salvon Ahmed led the way on the ground with 29 yards and a touchdown, while RB Myles Gaskin had 20 rushing yards on seven attempts with a score. WR DeVante Parker topped the charts with seven grabs for a game-high 116 yards on 14 targets, while Gaskin had 57 receiving yards. TE Mike Gesicki added five catches for 47 yards on his 10 targets, while WR Lynn Bowden Jr. registered 44 yards on eight snags with 12 targets. WR Malcolm Perry also found the end zone with a 25-yard score on his only catch. LB Andrew Van Ginkel led the defense with five solo stops, a sack, three tackles for loss, a pass defensed and a quarterback hit.

Footballguys view: At the beginning of the season, making the playoffs seemed like a worthy but likely unreachable goal for the Dolphins. They were one win from making it this year, but certainly will have a playoffs or bust approach next season. Tagovailoa didn't exactly impress despite a good win-loss record and the Dolphins should at least do their due diligence on the draft quarterbacks since they are holding the #3 pick thanks to Houston and the Laremy Tunsil trade.

Footballguys view: Grant and Parker could play, but they are uncertain to be able to finish the game and Tua Tagovailoa hasn't exactly supersized their production, so they're not Week 17 options.

  Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa may be good to go    Thu Dec 31, 01:34 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa practiced Thursday, Dec. 31, suggesting he has not been deemed a close contact to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Footballguys view: Tagovailoa is the team's starter and is developing as a pro. When the team needs a 'closer' they can turn to Fitzpatrick. Now that he's on the COVID list, Tagovailoa is going to have to work for the whole game.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (illness) has tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Dec. 31, and will miss the team's regular-season finale Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is the team's 'closer' at the quarterback position. Tua Tagovailoa is the starter but when things get tight near the end of the game, the Dolphins have used Fitzpatrick instead. This week against the Bills, Tagovailoa is going to get a full workload.
