Miami morning take: Dion Jordan

Here are the latest Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the web:

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins first-round pick Dion Jordan is showing signs of an impact player.

Morning take: Jordan continues to impress in limited playing time. It's time for Miami's coaches to take the kid gloves off and let Jordan thrive after the bye week.

  • Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald thinks Charles Clay has filled the Dolphins' void at tight end.

Morning take: Clay is second on the team in receptions and played above expectations. Most Dolphins fans thought the sky was falling when Dustin Keller (knee) was injured. But Clay is doing fine as the next man up.

Morning take: Taylor missed virtually all of spring workouts and training camp. That put him behind, but Taylor should only get better.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel wonders if the Dolphins are bound for the playoffs.

Morning take: The Dolphins are in a good spot at 3-2 after the bye. The schedule gets easier in the second half of the season. However, Miami has major issues to address.
