Morning take: Marino on Ryan Tannehill

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

  • Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site catches up with Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino to get his thoughts on Ryan Tannehill.

Morning take: Marino has always spoken highly of Tannehill. But no one can deny this is a huge third year for Miami’s quarterback. Tannehill is 15-17 in two seasons and must improve.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports former University of Miami quarterback Stephen Morris is on the Dolphins' radar.

Morning take: Morris played in the Dolphins' backyard. Therefore, Miami should have good intel. However, Morris never lived up to the hype in college and is probably a late-round pick.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes first-year general manager Dennis Hickey presents a fresh set of eyes.

Morning take: Sometimes it’s good to have a new general manager who doesn’t have ties to struggling and underachieving players. That makes it easier to make necessary changes.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes former Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin is the consensus in mock drafts.

Morning take: Martin would be a nice fit for Miami’s biggest need: the offensive line. However, there is a chance Martin will not be available at No. 19.
