Morning take: Dennis Hickey's moves

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web: Morning take: Hickey signed two defensive tackles (Earl Mitchell, Randy Starks) at affordable prices considering the quality Miami is getting. That leaves more money available to fill other positions.
Morning take: Money talks in the NFL. Starks was unhappy last season with the franchise tag. But Miami was willing to pay $12 million over two seasons and that was enough to mend fences.
Morning take: Miami will have no shortage of players on the defensive line. Cameron Wake, Olivier Vernon, Starks and Jared Odrick all have a track record of production. Mitchell must find a role.
Morning take: Every party got something out of this trade. Miami got a draft pick, San Francisco got a versatile offensive tackle on the cheap and Martin got a fresh start with his college coach.
