Morning take: Rishard Matthews motivated

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

Morning take: Matthews said he was motivated -- not discouraged -- by the Jarvis Landry pick. Matthews has made a strong push and will make the team.

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes issues remain on the Dolphins' offensive line.

Morning take: The Dolphins made another switch at guard to put Shelley Smith on the first team ahead of Dallas Thomas. Miami still doesn’t have a starting five just weeks before the season.

Morning take: The Dolphins can’t be worse than last season. If Miami allows 10-15 fewer sacks this season, that’s good progress.

  • Greg Stoda of the Palm Beach Post writes it’s time for the Dolphins offense to show some life.

Morning take: Miami’s offense started fast with a touchdown drive, but that has been the biggest flash so far. The Dolphins’ first team will get a lot of reps in the third preseason game.
