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.

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.

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.
Mar 26 - 10:43 AM

Chiefs signed RB Damien Williams, formerly of the Dolphins.

Williams, 26, spent his first four NFL seasons in Miami after going undrafted out of Oklahoma, managing 3.6 career yards per carry but showing passing-down chops with 85 receptions. In Kansas City, Williams figures to battle Charcandrick West for one roster spot behind Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware.
Mar 22 - 2:17 PM

Free agent Brock Osweiler is visiting the Dolphins on Thursday.

This connection makes some sense. Osweiler worked with coach Adam Gase in Denver, and Miami is in the market for a backup quarterback. That said, the Dolphins would be better served looking to the draft for a viable long-term option behind Ryan Tannehill.
Mar 22 - 11:53 AM

Frank Gore will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

Gore was reportedly "nearing a deal" with the Lions last week, but they signed LeGarrette Blount instead. Clearly looking for a veteran sidekick for Kenyan Drake, the Dolphins also met with DeMarco Murray over the weekend. Gore has topped 1,200 yards from scrimmage every season since 2005, his rookie year, but he will turn 35 in May.
Mar 22 - 8:51 AM

Chargers signed C Mike Pouncey to a two-year, $15 million contract.

In large part due to a lingering hip injury, Pouncey's effectiveness waned in 2017 with the Dolphins, but he is still only 28 years old and should be recovered now. Pouncey has stated he will eventually need a hip replacement. The Chargers' offensive line is shaping up, from left to right, as LT Russell Okung > LG Dan Feeney > C Pouncey > RG Forrest Lamp > RT Joe Barskdale. If the unit stays healthy, this line has a chance to be a top-ten group.
Mar 19 - 5:05 PM

The Dolphins will host free agent DeMarco Murray on Sunday.

The Dolphins have been connected to Murray but had yet to schedule a visit. Murray declined while playing through injuries last year and doesn't have much left entering his age-30 season. He would give Miami a veteran to pair with Kenyan Drake on early downs.
Mar 17 - 6:10 PM

The Dolphins have inquired about free agent DeMarco Murray.

Murray already drew interest from the Lions and Seahawks, visiting both clubs. There is no known visit scheduled yet with the Dolphins. In Miami, Murray would compete with Kenyan Drake for snaps. Damien Williams is a free agent, and the Dolphins' No. 2 running back is currently special teamer Senorise Perry.
