Here’s a look at the Dolphins as they get set to face the Ravens on Sunday:
- Dolphins starting running back Lamar Miller, a pending free agent, has about a 60% chance of staying in Miami in the estimation of ESPN.com’s James Walker. So far in 2015, the fourth-year running back has amassed 567 rushing yards and five touchdowns. Miller hasn’t produced as many would have hoped and it will be interesting to see if he thrives now that Bill Lazor has been dismissed as offensive coordinator. One also has to wonder if talented rookie Jay Ajayi could be viewed as the Dolphins’ best option, which could lead to a lowball offer for Miller.
- Dolphins cornerback Bobby McCain has hired agents Drew Rosenhaus and Michael Katz of Rosenhaus Sports for representation, according to NFL.com’s Rand Getlin (on Twitter). As a fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft, McCain signed a deal worth roughly $2.5MM over the course of four years with a $228K signing bonus. The 22-year-old has appeared in 11 games (1 start) for Miami in 2015, tallying three pass deflections and 10 total tackles. McCain was formerly represented by Elevate Football.
- Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be allowed to audible and make suggestions with Zac Taylor calling the plays, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald writes. “He’s got ownership in it as well,” head coach Dan Campbell said. “I think it’s like anything else. If you have an idea and you’re willing to step up on a table for it, you’re going to do everything it takes to make it work. … I’m a big believer that your quarterback should have influence on what he likes and what he doesn’t like in the game plan.”
