Morning take: Dolphins embarrassed?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins should feel humiliated with the way their general manager search is turning out.

Morning take: One of Miami’s top choices, Ray Farmer, backed out Thursday after questioning the team’s power structure. The Dolphins’ new GM will have little power outside picking the roster, as candidates are finding out.

  • Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports Lake Dawson will get a second interview with the Dolphins.

Morning take: Dawson is one of the few outside candidates remaining. With the candidate pool drying up, he has a solid chance.

  • Dave George of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins need more than a GM, they need new way of evaluating talent.

Morning take: I think that comes with bringing in a new voice. But the major question in Miami right now is whether that new voice will have enough of a say to make a difference.

  • Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel takes a look at the role of Dolphins Vice President of Football Administration Dawn Aponte.

Morning take: Aponte and head coach Joe Philbin are currently the two most important people in the Dolphins’ organization. Both will report directly to the owner, regardless of the GM hire.
