Morning take: Jonas Gray's road to Super Bowl


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

  • Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press writes about New England Patriots tailback Jonas Gray's long road to the Super Bowl.

Morning take: A big part of that journey took place in Miami. Gray was a camp body for the Dolphins who was eventually released. New England has a history of getting production out of former Dolphins.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes Super Bowl media day is both wonderful and absurd.

Morning take: I’ve covered multiple Super Bowl media days, and it is an interesting experience. There is a lot of fluff to cut through to get actual work done. But it’s always entertaining.

Morning take: Jenkins came out of nowhere and thrived following the season-ending injury to outside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. Now, Jenkins is a permanent starter and Ellerbe is likely to be released this offseason.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes about the new wax statue of Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino.

Morning take: Marino is arguably Miami’s most popular sports figure. The statue will be displayed in Orlando’s Madame Tussauds' museum.
