It was easy to forget Dolphins RB Raekwon McMillan, but now’s the time to watch

Raekwon McMillan starts out as the Dolphins’ middle linebacker. (Allen Eyestone/The Post) DAVIE — It’s easy to forget about Raekwon McMillan in a Dolphins offseason full of swirling storylines that range from the dismissal of longtime stars and the return of a starting quarterback. Maybe a second-round pick isn’t flashy enough to keep people’s attention after a year away, or perhaps the blur of nondescript linebackers that have come through Miami over the past decade has makes it...

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard poised to prove himself as ‘top corner’

Xavien Howard needs to be a true No. 1 cornerback. (Allen Eyestone/The Post) DAVIE — Xavien Howard knows it’s time. The Dolphins took him No. 38 overall three years ago with the thought that he’d be a star cornerback, and there are no more qualifiers as he works toward the upcoming season. There won’t be explanations that he’s still learning or doesn’t have enough game experience. He’s been around, he’s been very good at points and now he needs to put it all together. “I...

Are the Miami Dolphins offensive line woes a thing of the past?

When it comes to the Miami Dolphins offensive line woes of the past few years, it would be an understatement to say that the team lacked a starting front five with any sort of cohesiveness. And head coach Adam Gase is well aware of that. When asked how the starting lineup was coming along, he was typically succinct with his answer.“It's probably written more in pencil than pen right now.”But other than one guard spot, the line is coming together, with Laremy Tunsil, Josh Sitton, Daniel...

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill instrumental in Raekwon McMillan’s ACL recovery

Ryan Tannehill and Raekwon McMillan were rehab buddies. (Allen Eyestone/The Post) DAVIE — Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and then-rookie middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan bonded last year through an unfortunate and unexpected coincidence. Both players missed all of last season with torn ACLs, and because their injuries took place a week apart they ended up on nearly identical comeback tracks. McMillan and Tannehill had surgery on the same day, returned to team headquarters on the...

Dolphins’ New Secret Weapon: The Running Game

Over the past three seasons, the Miami Dolphins’ running game has roughly resembled the outline of the Grand Tetons; they finished 23rd in the NFL in rushing in 2015 and rocketed up to 9th in ‘16 before plummeting back to 29th last year. The team might have been able to sustain the loss of either Ryan Tannehill or former RB Jay Ajayi, but asking the offense to run the ball without either player proved to be unrealistic.

Tannehill does so many things for this team that doesn’t...
