The Miami Herald reports there is "legit interest" between the Dolphins and free agent CB Bashaud Breeland.

Breeland has seemingly visited every NFL team over the last month, and most of those visits have ended with reports of "legit interest." It has become clear Breeland is not getting the offers he thinks he deserves. Until a team gets desperate or Breeland lowers his valuation, he will remain in the free-agent pool.

Dolphins waived DT Gabe Wright.

Wright was battling for a roster spot as it was, but he sealed his fate when he blindsided a helmet-less Kenyan Drake during a practice fight on Monday. The 2015 fourth-rounder has made 13 appearances for three teams in three seasons. He could be running out of chances.

Dolphins rookie LB Jerome Baker replaced Stephone Anthony in the team's starting lineup Sunday.

Anthony played nine snaps in Thursday's preseason opener but showed poor tackling and physicality. It's quite the change for the Dolphins, who will now be starting a 6’1, 229-lb third-round rookie in place of Anthony (6'3, 245-lbs). Baker opened camp Sunday playing strongside next to weakside LB Kiko Alonso and MLB Raekwon McMillan.

Free agent Bashaud Breeland will visit the Dolphins on Sunday.

It's the latest team connected to Breeland after he visited the Patriots and Ravens. Miami has an open competition at the left corner spot, so Breeland would give them a legitimate starter opposite Xavien Howard. Breeland is healthy after a foot injury voided his Panthers deal. His asking price is the only reason he's still unsigned.

Dolphins TE coach Shane Day said TE Mike Gesicki has been "exactly as advertised" as a receiver.

"We’re asking him to do different techniques a little different from what he did in college and he’s adjusting to it well," Day continued. Day also said he was "very pleased" in Gesicki's blocking, noting there has been a slight learning curve in his blitz pickup because it "has been kind of new to him." A.J. Derby and MarQueis Gray continue to work ahead of Gesicki in camp, but the No. 42 overall pick clearly has the highest ceiling among Miami's tight ends.

The Dolphins held a private interview with Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander.

The Dolphins were one of 26 teams to attend Alexander's Pro Day last month. In addition to Miami, Alexander has also met with the Chiefs, Colts, Jets and Saints. The 21-year-old is one of five players eligible for the Supplemental Draft on July 11 along with Western Michigan CB Sam Beal, Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State RB Martayveus Carter and Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports free agent S Kenny Vaccaro previously visited the Dolphins and also has a visit lined up with the Jets.

This is on top of Vaccaro's previously-reported visit with the Colts that is taking place Monday night. The Jets will be up next should be leave Indy without a contract. The safety market is heating up after two months of a standstill. There's no reason Vaccaro, 27, should still be on the market.

Dolphins OC Dowell Loggains said he wants to run more 13 personnel and no-huddle this season.

Loggains coordinated the Bears' offense last season, which finished 28th-overall in no-huddle plays run and 13th-overall in 13 personnel (one running back, three tight ends). It's possible he had his hands tied under John Fox and a slower, less innovative offense. The coaches obviously think highly of No. 42 overall pick Mike Gesicki and want to keep the 99th-percentile SPARQ athlete on the field as much as possible. Gesicki should be a Week 1 starter.

Free agent DL Terrell McClain has a visit scheduled with the Cowboys.

McClain spent three seasons with the Cowboys before his disappointing one-year stop in Washington. He visited the Dolphins last week and met with the 49ers on Monday.
May 8 - 10:12 AM

Free agent DL Terrell McClain is visiting the 49ers on Monday.

Cut by the Redskins last week, McClain has already met with the Dolphins, but he left without a deal. The former Cowboys disappointed during his only season in Washington.
May 7 - 11:01 AM

Free agent DL Terrell McClain is visiting the Dolphins on Friday.

McClain has made several visits since being released in April but is still looking for work following a disappointing one-year stop in Washington. Despite his lackluster performance last season, he would be an immediate help on the Dolphins' interior line. McClain would likely compete with Jordan Phillips, Davon Godchaux, and the recently acquired Akeem Spence at defensive tackle.

The Miami Herald reports Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch is "on the Dolphins' radar."

Per reporter Barry Jackson, Miami has "privately identified linebacker as its biggest need." Adam Beasley reports Vander Esch could particularly become a target if the Dolphins trade back from No. 11 overall, which they are apparently open to doing. Vander Esch has reportedly been docked on some teams' draft boards due to concerns about a college neck injury.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins could extend a one-year "prove it" offer to free agent S Kenny Vaccaro.

Despite his lack of visits, Vaccaro remains a solid player who can help out both in the box and against tight ends. His presence would also likely push S T.J. McDonald to linebacker as the team has shown interest in moving him there. Vaccaro is still only 27 and underwent core muscle surgery in December.
Apr 12 - 2:03 PM

Free agent S Kenny Vaccaro is visiting the Dolphins on Thursday.

The safety market has moved at a snail's pace this offseason, and Vaccaro's foray into free agency has been equally quiet. He is a solid player, however, who can help out both in the box and against tight ends. This would be a solid late signing for the Dolphins.

Denver 7's Troy Renck reports the Dolphins backed out of a trade which would have landed them C.J. Anderson in return for RT Ja'Wuan James.

The two sides reportedly agreed to the deal before Miami "surprisingly nixed" it at the last minute. While that trade did not go through, it does confirm the Broncos are willing if not looking to move Anderson, something they might be able to accomplish during the draft. Anderson is scheduled to earn $4.5 million this season.

Bills signed DE Terrence Fede, formerly of the Dolphins.

Fede, 26, played 171 rotational snaps for Miami last season but recorded no sacks. He's near the bottom of the depth chart at defensive end in Buffalo.
Apr 4 - 10:27 AM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins expect to miss out on the draft's top quarterbacks.

The Dolphins pick at No. 11 but believe each of Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield will be off the board by then. The Dolphins have been strongly connected to Mayfield, but his stock seems to have solidified into that of a top-10 pick. The Dolphins are no strangers to bold moves but it seems they are not willing to trade up at the moment.

Rams signed DT Ndamukong Suh, formerly of the Dolphins, to a one-year, $14 million contract.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Suh took less to sign with the Rams. This has been the expected outcome for much of the past week after it was reported the Rams entered the conversation. Suh was reportedly very intrigued by the idea of teaming up with Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers while playing for DC Wade Phillips. It's a way for Suh to sort of rehab his value on a one-year deal as a 31-year-old. Even at his age, Suh remains one of the very best interior linemen, even if the counting stats weren't there for him in 2017. Look for Phillips to get the most out of him, allowing him to one-gap and attack upfield. This Rams defensive front and secondary is absolutely stacked; they now just need edge rushers.
Mar 26 - 6:15 PM

Free agent K Blair Walsh worked out for the Dolphins.

Walsh is coming off a typically shaky season with the Seahawks. He converted just 72.4 percent of his field goal attempts last year, well below the generally-accepted "acceptable" threshold of 80. The Dolphins don't have a kicker on the roster. Walsh would face competition.
Mar 26 - 5:11 PM

Giants signed DB Michael Thomas, formerly of the Dolphins, to a two-year contract.

Thomas is a versatile defensive back who can play both safety and corner. Even if he does not earn a big role on defense, he should contribute on special teams, where he has excelled throughout his career.
