Dolphins' Koa Misi: Awaiting clearance to return to field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Misi (neck) is still awaiting clearance to return to the field, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Misi underwent spinal fusion surgery after suffering a neck injury early in 2016 and was anticipating being cleared by May. However, that time came and went without Misi getting the thumbs up from a team doctor. The Dolphins likely would have cut him instead of restructuring his contract this offseason if they weren't optimistic he'll be able to play in 2017, but his eventual availability is nonetheless far from guaranteed.

Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Getting hype from coaching staff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen expects Parker to have a big season, ESPN.com's James Walker reports. "I really think he'll have a great, big year -- a gigantic year for us," Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said of Parker. "That would be huge. It helps with the quarterback. It helps with your running game. It helps everything."

The No. 14 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Parker seemingly has been hampered by injuries and questionable conditioning more than his total of three missed games in two seasons suggests. Dolphins coach Adam Gase hinted that the 24-year-old wideout didn't pay enough attention to details the past two years while attempting to coast on the talent that made him an early pick. Parker seems to get the message that he'll need a more dedicated approach if he wants to venture beyond mediocrity and into stardom, as he revamped his diet, sleep schedule and preventative injury work during the offseason. Parker shouldn't have too much trouble topping last season's 90 targets if he stays healthy, but there are still concerns about workload upside in an offense which also features Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, RB Jay Ajayi and TE Julius Thomas. Should he truly reach his potential, Parker could push ahead of Landry as the team's top target and quickly put those questions to rest .

Dolphins' Jarvis Landry: Won't discuss extension once season begins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Landry's agent said any talks about a long-term contract extension will have to take place before Week 1, The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports.

Landry carries a base salary of $893,850 as he enters the final season of his rookie contract, and while it sounds as if negotiations haven't really started, the Dolphins likely will approach him with an offer in the coming months. If no deal is reached, the team could keep him around next offseason with the franchise tag, which likely would cost around $15 million -- an unprecedented salary for a possession receiver who primarily operates from the slot. The Dolphins probably hope to avoid such a scenario, though it's possible the team would be comfortable with that figure, as Landry can make a strong argument that he's the NFL's top slot receiver. He seems to have maintained a good relationship with the team, never threatening to holdout at any point this offseason. Expect the two sides to eventually agree on a multi-year deal, be it this offseason or next.

Dolphins' Jay Ajayi: Working on receiving skills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi is focused on improving his pass-catching skills in order to avoid leaving the field on some third-down situations this season, ESPN's James Walker reports.

Ajayi broke out to the tune of 1,272 rushing yards, eight touchdowns and a Pro-Bowl selection last season, but he caught just 27 passes for 151 yards in the process. In an effort to elevate his game further, the 2015 fifth-rounder has pinpointed his receiving skills for improvement this offseason. According to the report, Ajayi already appears more fluid in his route running this year, which bodes well for an uptick in production. Along with featuring on more third downs, the fact that Ajayi is the Dolphins' unquestioned starter this season -- compared to not earning that role until Week 5 last term -- certainly seems to favor his stock.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Still working out kinks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas' apparent lack of chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill was a disappointing takeaway from offseason practice sessions, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Thomas was traded to Miami this offseason after catching just 30 passes for 281 yards and four touchdowns in nine games for the Jaguars last year. While that marked Thomas' worst production since his 2011 rookie year, it was also his second straight underwhelming campaign since Jacksonville signed him to a five-year, $46 million contract. Of course, that deal was the reward for back-to-back 12-touchdown campaigns in Denver, which put Thomas at the forefront of fantasy radars at the time. In reuniting with then-Broncos offensive coordinator and now-Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, Thomas seems to have a decent chance of rebounding this season, but indications that he's yet to establish a consistent rapport with Tannehill raises some concern whether that will happen.
