Morning take: Daniel Thomas and Egnew

8/21/2014

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

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes tight end Michael Egnew and running back Daniel Thomas highlight the Dolphins’ recent draft woes.

Morning take: Both are draft busts of the previous general manager, Jeff Ireland. Egnew and Thomas had their shot and may not make the 53-man roster this season.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins coach Joe Philbin still likes Thomas.

Morning take: Thomas had another underwhelming training camp. He has a hamstring injury and must get healthy fast to try to make the team.

  • Armando Salgeuro of the Miami Herald writes about the competition between guard Shelley Smith and Dallas Thomas.

Morning take: Smith took most of the first-team reps this week, which most likely means he will start. Thomas lost his starting job with a poor preseason outing last week.

  • Brian Briggane of the Palm Beach Post takes a look at the Dolphins’ receiver position.

Morning take: This is one of the deepest areas of the team. Fringe players such as Armon Binns and Kevin Cone may not make the team but could help elsewhere.
