Morning take: Who starts at left guard?

6/1/2014

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

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel takes a look at the Dolphins' battle at left guard between Dallas Thomas and rookie Billy Turner.

Morning take: Both are similar players. Thomas and Turner are “tweeners” between guard and tackle. But the player who adjusts best will start next to Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert.

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have no interest in free-agent linebacker Jonathan Vilma.

Morning take: Vilma is a veteran and former Hurricane who would shake up Miami's linebacker group. But the Dolphins prefer to see what they have for now with Dannell Ellerbe, Philip Wheeler and Koa Misi.

  • Dolphins owner Stephen Ross tells the NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington that there will "certainly" be a team in Los Angeles.

Morning take: The NFL wants to get back into the Los Angeles market. But which team will it be? The Dolphins are not one of those teams up for consideration.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes about Dolphins offensive line coach John Benton, who believes his group can be strong.

Morning take: There's only one way to go but up for Miami's offensive line. The Dolphins were beat in the trenches both against the run and the pass last season. They will have four new starters, which was needed.
