Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:
Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site writes that special-teams coach Darren Rizzi sees good things ahead in 2016.
Morning take: It was questionable if Rizzi would return after interim Dan Campbell did not get the top job. But rookie head coach Adam Gase saw the value in Rizzi, who is a good coach and well-liked in the locker room.
Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel takes a look at the Dolphins' unrestricted free agents.
Morning take: Starting defensive end and sacks leader Olivier Vernon is the biggest name on Miami’s list. He will cash in big somewhere, although it likely won’t be in Miami.
Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes that the Dolphins must find an upgrade at middle linebacker.
Morning take: Kelvin Sheppard, an unrestricted free agent, was inconsistent against the run and pass last season. Miami was ranked 28th against the run and struggled on the second level.
