Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:
Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino tells Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk Live that the Miami Dolphins aren’t far off from competing.
Morning take: The Dolphins must first improve against division rivals, where they were 1-5 last season. That played a huge factor in Miami’s 6-10 finish.
Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel writes that the Dolphins could slash $40 million off their payroll.
Morning take: Plenty of roster cuts and restructuring will be coming this month. The team has holes and needs money available to fix them.
Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site writes that Super Bowl trips were once routine for Miami.
Morning take: This team has a rich history under Hall of Fame coach Don Shula. But it’s been so long since the Dolphins were consistently good that many young fans don’t know enough of that history.
