The documentary will air next month on FOX!

It has been twenty years since the Dolphins had a superstar quarterback like Tua Tagovailoa. And although it’s improbable he ever fills the shoes left behind by the great #13, the hype surrounding him is like nothing we’ve ever seen before—and rightfully so.

Tua is entering the NFL with an impressive resume, which includes 7,442 yards, 87 touchdowns, and a National Championship victory as a true Freshman....

How much momentum are the Dolphins carrying from 2019? ‘I don’t think any’ Brian Flores says

Photo by Mark Brown/Getty Images

The Miami Dolphins exceed expectations in 2019, winning five games despite pundits describing the team as the worst club to ever play the game. The team, largely considered to be “Tanking for Tua,” was competitive for much of the season, and put together some well played games at the end of the year, winning three of their last five games, and all five ins came over the last nine weeks. Miami ended the season strong and will now look to carry that over...

Miller is joining the empire.

In what seems to be a signature Bill Belichick move, the emperor himself is signing former Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller to a one-year deal. Miller is joining the New England Patriots heading into his age 29 season just one year removed from an ACL tear he suffered in the preseason with the Texans last August. If there’s anything we’ve learned about Bill Belichick over the years, it’s that...

We all live in COVIDland now, a place where covering our noses and mouths is a regular part of life. Whether you are going to the grocery store, work, or - maybe one day - a football game, the face covering has now been added to the list of things you have to grab on your way out the door - and many times the thing you have to turn around and go back to get when you walk out the door without it.

Why not add another face cover to what is probably a growing collection - but this...

What gameday staple do you want to see continue if fans are not allowed in stadium this season?

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Dolphins fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

There is still so much unknown surrounding the 2020 NFL season. But assuming play does return on schedule it seems likely that fans won’t be in attendance, at least early in the season. If that is the case, fans hope at least a few gameday staples stay in place.

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins added a new wide receiver to the room with the addition of Chester Rogers. He worked out for the team last week after Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson opted out for the 2020 season. Rogers is coming back from a fractured kneecap that ended his 2019 season back in December.

Last nights question had to do with the bringing back of Chan Gailey to once again run the Miami Dolphins offense. This, at least on Brian Flores’ part had to do with developing a rookie quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa. My Phinsider Question Of The Day tonight has more to do with Tua than Gailey. With this being year two or maybe year one of the rebuild, depending on how you look at it do you find it a good idea to just throw Tua out there at the...

Dolphins Move To Shore Up WR Corps After Defections

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

After the Miami Dolphins saw two wide receivers opt out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 outbreak, speculation had run rampant among many fans, as to whether they would count on some of their younger receivers already on the roster, sign some free agents off the street or even trade for an established veteran.

It looks as though they’ve decided to go with the second option. They resigned former Cleveland WR Ricardo Louis, whom they had...

Dolphins sign wide receiver Chester Rogers

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Over the last several days, many NFL players have decided to opt-out of the 2020 season. And through this process, the Dolphins have lost veteran wide receivers Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson.

Sure, many believe Miami’s WR room is littered with young, talented players. However, it was only a matter of time before Chris Grier and Brian Flores started scouring the list of NFL free agents for a veteran presence.

Yesterday, the Dolphins re-signed veteran WR...
