Wide receiver Marcus Easley has been sidelined by a knee injury.
Stevie Johnson has high expectations coming off a breakout 2010 season. "Just try to be like Lee [Evans]," Johnson said. "Lee's one of the elite receivers. He's had 1,000-yard seasons, multiple 1,000-yard seasons. That's what I want to do. I want to be one of those receivers you hear about. Steve Smiths and all that. [Larry] Fitzgeralds. I want to be like those guys. I want to have consistent, 1,000-yard seasons and multiple touchdowns. I don't want to get it twisted and sound like an arrogant guy or anything. But that's the next step for me. I feel like I want to be in that category with those receivers, like Lee is."
Jason Taylor was surprised to get the call asking if he wanted to return to the Dolphins.
Greg Cote of The Miami Herald: "Nothing the Dolphins have done so far, post-lockout, would scream win-now and command the rest of the league’s attention as much as the acquisition -- still -- of quarterback Kyle Orton."
