Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Monday from around the Web:
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle is optimistic about this group.
Morning take: Miami’s defense kept teams out of the end zone but allowed more yards than previous years. The Dolphins’ defense must become the clear strength of the team, at least early on.
  • Anthony Chaing of the Palm Beach Post writes second-year players Dion Jordan and Jamar Taylor are healthy and optimistic.
Morning take: Health could be the key to both players making a second-year jump. Miami needs solid production from last year’s draft class.
  • Analyst from the NFL Network weigh in on Dolphins third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Morning take: This year is make or break for Tannehill. He’s yet to have a winning season and NFL quarterbacks rarely get four years to prove they’re franchise quarterbacks.
  • Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site writes about linebacker Dannell Ellerbe becoming a first-time father.
Morning take: Ellerbe experienced a lot of change since winning the Super Bowl with the Ravens following the 2012 season. He joined the Dolphins in 2013 and enjoyed his first Father's Day on Sunday.
