Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:
  • Douglas Hanks of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins want to swap their $350 million stadium renovation in exchange for a $4 million tax bill.
Morning take: Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants something in exchange for spending his own money. It’s a better offer than last year, where taxpayers were asked to help fund the changes.
  • Andy Kent of the Dolphins team site writes new safety Louis Delmas returns home and is ready to produce.
Morning take: The Miami native signed a one-year contract and has a lot to prove this year. Expect Delmas to be motivated to produce.
  • Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated says the Delmas signing scratches one team off the list for Jairus Byrd.
Morning take: On Monday I reported Byrd is seeking an average of $9 million per season. That was too rich for Miami, which has other well-defined need.
  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post wonders if the Dolphins can land a bargain at running back.
Morning take: Miami could use some help with the running game. A veteran like Maurice Jones-Drew would be a nice fit at the right price. But good options remain in the draft, as well.
