Morning take: McKinnie to Dolphins?

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

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald believes the Dolphins should sign veteran offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie.

Morning take: For the veteran minimum, this move could make sense to improve depth. Miami may keep McKinnie on the short list in case there is an injury.

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reports the Dolphins have no issues with Mike Pouncey's leadership.

Morning take: Miami’s brass has said it believes in Pouncey. He’s a very good player on the field but needs to show maturity off the field and in the locker room.

  • Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site writes Dolphins rookie linebacker Marcus Thompson is living out his dream.

Morning take: Miami is looking for depth at linebacker, and Thompson will compete with several others. But Thompson remains a long shot to make the 53-man roster.

  • Bill Beck of the Elkhart Truth writes a feature on Dolphins Director of Player Personnel Joe Schoen.

Morning take: Schoen works closely with Miami first-year general manager Dennis Hickey. The Dolphins’ front office hopes the right moves were made this offseason to get them to the playoffs.
