Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:
  • According to the NFLPA, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is among the most popular players in the league.
Morning take: Tannehill rated 24th among players, which is solid for someone who hasn’t led Miami to the playoffs. Tannehill has a lot of fan support in South Florida and he will be motivated to repay it this year.
  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins are showing interest in USC receiver Marqise Lee.
Morning take: The Dolphins brought in Lee for a visit, along with other high-profile receivers. Could Miami take a receiver at No. 19?
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel examines whether Jelani Jenkins can be a starting linebacker for the Dolphins.
Morning take: Miami’s starting linebackers struggled last season -- and particularly Philip Wheeler. Jenkins played 118 defensive snaps last season as a rookie and that number could increase.
  • New Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan tells the team site that he’s ready bounce back this season.
Morning take: Injuries slowed Finnegan last year with the St. Louis Rams. But the Dolphins believe he still has more left in the tank.
