Vegas Sports Betting Odds: Miami Dolphins Season Preview

Last season, the Miami Dolphin had dealt with issues regarding racism amongst players; Guard Richie Incognito was sent racist text message and homophobic harassment remarks to tackle Jonathan Martin which suspended Incognito for three months. Even though this issue has been settled, the Dolphins let go of the two players and instead, added offensive tackle Brand Albert and guard Daryn Colledge to the offensive lineup. This will give quarterback Ryan Tannehill a confident pocket protection without any controversial issues to deal with amongst teammates; this will also give head Coach Joe Philbin a better chemistry with the offensive protection. The offense added a key player for their running game; they acquired running back Knowshon Moreno who had a very good year with the Denver Broncos helping them get to the Superbowl; Moreno is good on both running and receiving part of the offense and is set to being the back-up running back for Lamar Miller. They also drafted rookie wide receiver from LSU Jarvis Landry; he has shown a great amount of work and talent during training camp season but is not yet set as a starting receiver.

Defensively, during the off-season, the Dolphins were able to acquire cornerback Cortland Finnegan from the St-Louis Rams and safety Louis Delmas from the Detroit Lions who are two excellent additions to this defense. They will be working with cornerback Brent Grimes and safety Reshad Jones in giving good coverage; though Jones still has issues to deal with the NFL for violating the league’s policy against performance enhancing drugs. After losing defensive tackle Paul Soliai to the Falcons, they made a quick move in keeping and re-signing DT Randy Starks and acquiring DT Earl Mitchell from the Houston Texans. All in all, the team is looking alright but not really a playoff contender worthy team.
