Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the web:
One NFL Network analyst believes Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will have a Dan Marino-like season.
Morning take: Expectations are high for Tannehill in Year 2, but they're not that high. Tannehill simply has to play solid football most weeks. He doesn’t need to match a Hall of Famer.
Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says it may take patience for Miami's rookie class.
Morning take: The Dolphins' top three picks are all banged up. Dion Jordan is recovering from a shoulder injury, and corners Jamar Taylor (groin) and Will Davis (toe) look unlikely to play on Sunday. Miami has a lot of talent and should be able to sustain these injuries.
Sean Grimm of Dolphins.com takes a look at the team's new leadership council.
Morning take: Tannehill, Mike Pouncey, Cameron Wake, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Soliai and Richie Incognito make up a good group of veterans. Miami has a good locker room and that shouldn’t be a problem this year.
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that the Browns will miss receiver Josh Gordon on Sunday.
Morning take: Gordon is serving a two-game suspension, and this definitely benefits the Dolphins. Gordon is a playmaker who could have been a threat for the Browns.
