Morning take: Respect for Charles Clay

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

  • NFL.com examines whether Dolphins tight end Charles Clay deserves his No. 89 ranking in the NFL 100.

Morning take: This was voted on by the players, and they are definitely entitled to their opinion. But Clay was ranked ahead of Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, which is questionable.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says there is nothing wrong with Dolphins rookies having a chip on their shoulders.

Morning take: Miami has five draft picks from small colleges. That means a majority of its draft class has a lot to prove. It remains to be seen how NFL-ready this group will be.

  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes Dolphins rookies began community work.

Morning take: This is a good start for Miami's rookie class. Character in the locker room needs to be a major focus in 2014.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post takes a look at the possibility of the Dolphins acquiring Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson.

Morning take: Johnson talks as though he is on the outs. He has a big cap number on a rebuilding team. However, Miami doesn’t have a need for another receiver, despite the fact Johnson grew up in Miami and attended the University of Miami.
