Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Dolphins on Friday.

Davis, of course, was drafted by the Dolphins with the 25th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He was traded by then-GM Jeff Ireland to the Colts in 2012 in one of the more famous scenes of HBO's Hard Knocks. Davis turns 30 in May and has now visited Miami, Oakland, San Fran, Buffalo, and Cleveland over the last two weeks. He should be coming to a decision in the near future.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson says it "would not be remotely surprising" if the Dolphins showed interest in C.J. Anderson should he be released by the Broncos.

The Dolphins signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million deal as a restricted free agent in 2016, but the contract was matched by Denver. There is now speculation the Broncos will release Anderson, freeing up nearly $5 million to use in Denver's Kirk Cousins pursuit. Anderson has a Dolphins confidante in ex-Broncos OC Adam Gase and would form a committee with Kenyan Drake in Miami.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield met "at length" with the Bills, Dolphins, Jets and Saints during Senior Bowl week.

The Heisman winner impressed in Mobile and is being projected as a first-round pick. Each of the teams mentioned would be a natural fit for Mayfield as the Bills, Dolphins, Jets and Saints are all seeking franchise quarterbacks. Mayfield is undersized (6'0") and has shown maturity issues, which has led to unfavorable comparisons to Johnny Manziel. However, talent evaluators have universally lauded his leadership qualities, mobility and playmaking ability.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are open to using the No. 11 overall pick on a quarterback "if he is the best player on their board."

Reporter Adam Beasley dropped the nugget in a Thursday article about Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield posting on social media "#GetMeToMiami." Mayfield was commenting on an Instagram video posted by Kenny Stills. Mayfield seems likely to be a first-round pick, but just where that might be is anybody's guess at this stage of the process.

The Dolphins are pursuing Eric Studesville as their RB coach.

Studesville was fired from Denver earlier this month. He interviewed for the Giants’ head-coaching job but was never a serious candidate. The Dolphins had one of the worst rushing attacks in the league despite a strong final month from Kenyan Drake. Studesville has also been linked as a possible offensive coordinator for wherever Josh McDaniels lands.

The CFL's Montreal Alouettes hired ex-Packers coach Mike Sherman as head coach.

Sherman was head coach and/or GM in Green Bay from 2000-2005 before getting canned shortly after GM Ted Thompson took over. Sherman then became the Texans' OC in 2007 before landing the Texas A&M head gig from 2008-2011. Sherman was the Dolphins' OC from 2012-2013 and has been coaching at the high school level the last three years. He turned 63 on Tuesday.

Dolphins waived WR Rashawn Scott.

He was let go to make room for AJ Derby, who was claimed off waivers from Denver. Scott has played just one offensive snap in 2017.

Free agent RB Jeremy Langford visited the Dolphins on Tuesday.

ESPN's Field Yates reports Langford visited the Giants on Monday. The Dolphins need a body in the backfield after Damien Williams suffered a shoulder injury in Week 12. Langford spent two days on the Ravens' active roster in September.

Eagles acquired Jay Ajayi from the Dolphins in exchange for a fourth-round pick.

While this looks shocking on the surface, coach Adam Gase took a shot at Ajayi following the team's loss to the Ravens last Thursday night and had clearly soured on the back. Now in Philly, Ajayi should take over as the lead back ahead of LeGarrette Blount and will get to run behind a solid offensive line for the first time in his career. Even likely to share work, this is a great move for Ajayi's fantasy value.

Dolphins released CB Byron Maxwell.

QB David Fales was signed in a corresponding move. Their best corner last season, Maxwell has not been active since Week 3 in part because of a hamstring injury but mostly because he fell out of favor with the coaching staff. Despite a disappointing start to the year, Maxwell should find another team quickly. The Dolphins will move forward with Xavien Howard and Cordrea Tankersley at corner.

Bengals promoted QBs coach Bill Lazor to offensive coordinator.

It's a move that shows support for Andy Dalton, replacing fired OC Ken Zampese in favor of Dalton's position coach. Lazor's hands were tied as a short-lived OC with the Dolphins, but he was also working under offensive-minded Joe Philbin, whose affinity was for passing at all costs. At his core, Lazor's roots reside with Joe Gibbs and Chip Kelly. We would expect him to focus on feeding A.J. Green and weed Jeremy Hill out of the RBBC.

Dolphins waived K Andrew Franks.

His fate was sealed when the Dolphins claimed Cody Parkey off waivers. "Just wanted to thank the @MiamiDolphins for the opportunity and for a great 2 yrs," Franks tweeted. "Time to get back to work." The 24-year-old converted 16-of-21 field goals last year with a long of 55 yards. He should resurface with a kicker-needy team at some point.

Jets claimed WR Damore'ea Stringfellow off waivers from the Dolphins.

An UDFA out of Ole Miss, Stringfellow caught four preseason passes for 130 yards (32.5 YPC). Despite those eye-popping numbers, Stringfellow is a big body without much explosion. He'll eventually end up on the Jets' practice squad.

The Palm Beach Post considers the Dolphins a fit for free agent LG Alex Boone.

Boone is one of the bigger names available after his release from Minnesota. He would give Miami some needed depth to a perennially injured offensive line. With Ted Larsen sidelined, Boone could push LG Anthony Steen for the Week 1 job.

Dolphins waived QB David Fales.

The former Bears project couldn't convince the Dolphins to keep three quarterbacks. There will be Twitter buzz that Fales could get a look elsewhere, but he's most likely practice squad bound.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 12:54:00 PM

Dolphins waived DB Jordan Lucas.

The No. 204 overall pick of last year's draft, Lucas made eight rookie appearances. 24, he could be headed to the practice squad.

Dolphins released OG Kraig Urbik (knee) with an injury settlement.

Urbik was expected to miss the start of the season after a knee scope this week. The Dolphins couldn't afford to wait on him given their shortage of offensive line depth. Urbik should resurface when healthy.

Colts signed CB Chris Culliver, formerly of the Dolphins.

Once a promising talent for the Jim Harbaugh-led 49ers, Culliver has floundered in recent years bouncing around with the Redskins and Dolphins. He didn't even play in a game last season as he worked his way back from a 2015 torn ACL. Now 29, Culliver helps fills a need but is a question mark.
Mon, Aug 21, 2017 06:34:00 PM

Bears signed ILB Kelvin Sheppard, formerly of the Giants.

Sheppard, 29, worked out for the Dolphins this week after they lost rookie MLB Raekwon McMillan to an ACL tear. In Chicago, Sheppard will provide some inside linebacker depth if Danny Trevathan (knee) isn't ready.
Fri, Aug 18, 2017 12:44:00 PM

Free agent LB Kelvin Sheppard worked out for the Dolphins.

The Dolphins visited with Sheppard and Rey Maualuga. An 11-game starter with the Giants last year, Sheppard would be a veteran fallback behind MLB Mike Hull.
