Morning take: Will McKinnie return?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:
Morning take: McKinnie has played his entire career on the left side, including last season with the Dolphins. McKinnie is doing whatever it takes to get picked up by another team in 2014. He's an emergency plan for Miami.
- Free agent and former Dolphin Bryant McKinnie told WQAM he’s willing to play right tackle.
Morning take: Unless Miami gets Hester on the cheap, the move doesn’t do much for the Dolphins. Thigpen is a solid returner. Hester is better but doesn’t have a natural position.
- Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post compares free agent Devin Hester to Dolphins returner Marcus Thigpen.
Morning take: Coyle has a lot of toys to play with this season. He must find a better way to use 2013 No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan this year.
Morning take: Miami is putting a lot of stock into Finnegan, who had a poor 2013 season with the St. Louis Rams. The Dolphins’ two-year, $11 million contract speaks volumes that they're confident Finnegan can bounce back.
- Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports why the Dolphins are committed to cornerback Cortland Finnegan.
