Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes the New England Patriots are still the beasts of the AFC East.
Morning take: I agree. The Patriots had down year in terms of talent in 2013 and still won the division by a landslide. New England will be better and is a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
Morning take: Cohen highlights quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has a lot of pressure to succeed in Year 3. If things do not go well, he's not promised a fourth year as Miami's starting quarterback.
  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald wonders if Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan should still play special teams.
Morning take: I was never a fan of playing your No. 3 overall pick on special teams. The risk of injury isn't worth it. Jordan's focus should be on becoming a dominant defensive end.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post wonders if Dolphins center Mike Pouncey will get a bigger contract than his twin brother: Maurkice Pouncey.
Morning take: Maurkice Pouncey became the NFL's highest-paid center this week with a $44 million contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mike Pouncey can match or surpass that if he erases the off-the-field concerns with the Dolphins' brass.
