    In late January, as the Miami Dolphin slow-cooked their coaching hire, a team source was asked about the strangely sluggish pace. “Just wait, this will be big,’ the source said. The Dolphins hoped to land Super Bowl winners Tom Brady as quarterback and Sean Payton as coach, the South Florida Sun Sentinel confirmed. Their yearlong plans were undone in part by former coach Brian Flores’ discrimination lawsuit against the NFL that involves Dolphins owner Steve Ross. All of which puts the Dolphins’ offseason spending splurge and perhaps their future in a different context. The hope was to marry Super Bowl winners like Payton and Brady with big-name free agents like receiver Tyreek Hill and tackle Terron Armstead and — voila! — become instant contenders. Instant box-office hits, too. Brady? Payton? Their young players and free-agent buys? As one source said: “You’d have needed to add security at the ticket window.” Instead, the Dolphins hired a first-time coach Mike McDaniel and endorsed Tua Tagovailoa as quarterback. But their what-might-have-been file over the past two decades of missed players and mistimed decisions...
    The Miami Dolphins reportedly traded for controversial Kansas Chiefs star Tyreek Hill on Wednesday and promptly made him the highest-paid receiver in NFL history with a new, $120 million contract extension that includes $72.2 million in guarantees. As part of the deal, which was first reported by ESPN and the NFL Network, the Dolphins will send five draft picks to the Chiefs, including first- and second-round selections this year. Kansas City also receives a pair of fourth-round picks over the next two years and a sixth-rounder in 2023. The contract extension eclipses Davante Adams's new deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, which averages $28.5 million per season and briefly stood as the largest wide receiver contract in NFL history. Spokespeople for the Dolphins did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for confirmation.   Faced with limited salary cap space, the Chiefs sought to reduce payroll by giving Hill permission to seek a trade, according to multiple reports. A three-time All-Pro who helped the Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV at the end of the 2019 season, Hill remains a divisive figure among NFL...
    Former Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores dropped a bombshell lawsuit on the NFL, alleging racial discrimination within the league’s hiring process. On Wednesday, Flores and his legal team joined CBS Mornings to discuss. Aside from the claims of racial discrimination, the lawsuit alleges Dolphins owner Stephen Ross attempted to pay Flores to lose on purpose during the 2019 season. “You make claims that you were offered $100,000 for each game that this team loses, subsequently to get a better draft pick,” CBS Mornings host and former NFL wide receiver Nate Burleson said to Flores during the interview. “To attack the integrity of the game, that’s what I felt was happening in that instance and I wouldn’t stand for it,” Flores responded. “I think it hurt my standing within the organization and ultimately was the reason why I was let go.” The Dolphins entered the 2019 season as the favorites to land the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. Flores was a first-year head coach and the team’s roster was gutted. But Flores shocked the league by leading Miami to...
    A three-year rebuild didn’t get the Miami Dolphins to the desired destination. The Dolphins are virtually in the same spot they were when the latest overhaul began, and that stagnancy ultimately cost Brian Flores his job. While some improvements were made during the rebuilding process, the offense continued to struggle. The biggest concern moving forward is how much of the roster is salvageable, and what’s the next step for this franchise? Here’s a look at how the Dolphins performed in all areas, and some end-of-season recognition that will allow us to closely examine the 2021 season. Passing Game: D There are only nine teams in the NFL that had a worse cumulative passer rating (85.4) than the Dolphins, and four of those teams had a rookie quarterback at the helm, and another four lost their starting quarterback to an injury. It can be argued that Tua Tagovailoa had a decent second season (90.1 passer rating) as an NFL starter. Tagovailoa delivered a 7-5 record despite suffering two injuries, but there were four games where he...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Heading into Sunday’s game in Miami, the playoffs had already been clinched for the Patriots. All that was left to gain or lose was some seeding, with an outside shot at winning the division still at play. From that perspective, perhaps a case could be made that the loss to the Dolphins wasn’t all that bad. But a loss like this one cannot and should not be brushed aside. It can’t be sugarcoated. This one was bad. For one, it capped off an absolutely miserable finish to the season. With their late bye in Week 14, the Patriots were sitting pretty following the seven-game winning streak that saved their season. At 9-4, and with a dominant win in Buffalo under their belt, the Patriots were in the top spot in the AFC. People — and algorithms — began foreseeing a trip to the Super Bowl, a remarkable turnaround from the 7-9 season a year ago, a wild success story for Bill Belichick, Mac Jones, and the reinvested New England Patriots. What came after that was...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Given the way it began, the Mac Jones era was at risk of being a nightmare on Sunday. A panic in the backfield, an ill-advised twirl, and a … backward spike to lose 13 yards and push the Patriots out of field-goal range was not what the Patriots had in mind when they used the 15th overall pick to select Jones. Yet that shaky start notwithstanding, Jones put together a very impressive day of quarterbacking for New England. He handled blitzes well, he took what the defense gave him, he stood tall when facing unblocked rushers, he had some zip when needed in some situations and some touch in others, he made plays on third down, and he looked very much like someone who at the very least will be capable of playing in the NFL. The way that he got better as the game went on bodes well for his growth and development going forward. If you were to point out the negatives from the rookie’s NFL debut, you’d mostly be nitpicking. For instance, on the play when Damien Harris...
    A swimmer stranded two and a half miles from shore in the icy waters of Tralee Bay, Ireland, was rescued on Sunday in what an RNLI volunteer called a 'miracle'. The man, believed to be in his early 30s, was hauled out of the freezing water by a Fenit RNLI lifeboat at 8.30pm, aided by a pod of dolphins who lifeboat crew believed 'helped him'. The hypothermic and exhausted man, who is thought to be from Derry, said he had attempted to swim over 5 miles off the coast of Castlegregory beach in southwest Ireland to Mucklaghmore Rock, but he was sorely unprepared.    He was found more than 12 hours after he had set off, wearing nothing but a pair of skimpy swimming trunks and surrounded by dolphins, thanks to RNLI coxswain Finbarr O'Connell's excellent knowledge of the bay's tides and currents.   Fenit RNLI volunteer Jackie Murphy said it was a 'miracle' the man had survived the ordeal, and credited O'Connell with his rescue thanks to his ability to calculate the swimmer's likely position. Coxswain Finbarr O'Connell, the man...
    Former Tennessee Titans lineman Isaiah Wilson was reportedly arrested in January prior to his trade. According to BroadwaySportsMedia.com, the infamous NFL draft bust was arrested at gunpoint in Georgia after an alleged high-speed chase. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The incident report claims that Wilson was driving as fast as 140 miles-per-hour and didn’t stop as police chased him, according to the same BroadwaySportsMedia.com story.

    Nick Saban apparently came close to a couple physical altercations during his time coaching the Miami Dolphins. According to a Jay Glazer during a Tuesday appearance on Colin Cowherd’s show, Saban nearly came to blows with Daunte Culpepper and Zach Thomas during his tenure with the Dolphins. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Why? Apparently, the duo didn’t like the way Saban, who left for Alabama after two seasons, spoke to them. You can listen to Glazer break it all down below. This story from Glazer is something I’ve always talked about when it comes to college coaches jumping to the NFL. Not the potential violence aspect, but about NFL players needing to be treated differently than college players.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Alabama Football (@alabamafbl) NFL coaches simply can’t treat their roster like it’s a college team. We’re not talking about teenagers. We’re talking about grown men with millions in guaranteed money and families at home. College football coaches are dictators. NFL coaches have...

    Tua Tagovailoa's three-game winning streak as the Miami Dolphins starting quarterback came to an end Sunday after getting benched for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, but the rookie supports any decision that benefits the team. Brian Flores benched Tagovailoa in the fourth quarter as the Dolphins were on the cusp of losing their five-game winning streak but Fitzpatrick was only able to set Miami up for a field goal as they lost 20-13 to the Denver Broncos. STEELERS’ JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER MISSES A STEP, SUSTAINS INJURY AFTER SLIPPING ON PENALTY FLAG When asked what he thought about his benching after the game, Tagovailoa expressed full confidence in Flores’ decision.  “My thoughts were whatever was going to be best for the team,” Tagovailoa said, via ProFootballTalk. “When I was in, we couldn’t really get things going and coach felt like it was the best decision to put Fitz in to give us a spark. When I heard that — it’s really what’s best for the team.” THANKSGIVING DAY NFL SCHEDULE 2020: WHICH TEAMS ARE PLAYING, KICKOFF TIMES & MORE He continued: “If we were to win with...
    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa thinks his transition to the NFL hasn’t been terribly hard. The legendary Alabama passer is 3-0 as a starting quarterback in the NFL, and has thrown five touchdowns to no interceptions. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) To say things are going well for the rookie would be a massive understatement.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Miami Dolphins (@miamidolphins) How does Tua feel about the whole situation? He thinks it’s not overly difficult. He told ProFootballTalk, “I expected it to be a lot harder. Not that it’s not hard.”   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Miami Dolphins (@miamidolphins) While Tua didn’t get the starting nod right away as the Dolphins chose to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick, he’s played incredibly well in his first three starts. There’s no question at all that the Dolphins have found their quarterback of the future, and that should make fans very happy. After years and years of disappointment, Miami has found...

    Ryan Fitzpatrick. AP Photo/Jed Jacobsohn The Miami Dolphins announced on Tuesday that the team would bench starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in favor of rookie Tua Tagovailoa. Fitzpatrick, who had been playing well for the Dolphins, leading the team to a 3-3 record to start the season including two straight wins, told reporters he was heartbroken by the news. "It broke my heart yesterday," Fitzpatrick said. "It's a tough thing for me to hear and to now have to deal with, but I'm going to do my best with it." On Sunday, Fitzpatrick had cheered on Tagovailoa as he got his first NFL snaps on the Dolphins' final drive of the game. Now Fitzpatrick will have to figure out a way to continue supporting his rookie teammate after having lost the starting job to him. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    MIAMI (AP) — Jim Kiick, the versatile running back who helped the Miami Dolphins achieve the NFL’s only perfect season in 1972, has died. He was 73. The team announced the death Saturday. Kiick battled memory issues in recent years and lived in an assisted living home. The former University of Wyoming star was part of a formidable backfield that included his best friend, Pro Football Hall of Fame fullback Larry Csonka. They earned the nicknames Butch and Sundance, inspired by the popular 1969 movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Kiick (“Butch”) made the American Football League All-Star team in his first two seasons and played for the Dolphins’ back-to-back Super Bowl championship teams in 1972-73. Kiick had two touchdowns for the ’72 Dolphins in the AFC championship game, and also scored in the Super Bowl victory that capped their 17-0 season under Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Don Shula. Shula died May 4 at age 90. Kiick and the speedier Mercury Morris split playing time during the 1972-73 seasons, which gave Shula a potent one-two punch at...

    Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores' roiling emotions of late regarding social injustice were compounded with the death of Chris Beaty, a good friend who was fatally shot after violence erupted during an Indianapolis protest.
