Miami morning take: Ireland interviewed

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the web:

  • Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network reports NFL lead investigator Ted Wells interviewed Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland for two hours in regards to the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin saga.

Morning take: Ireland is one of the leaders in the building, and the NFL wants to find out how much he knew about the relationship between Incognito and Martin. Ireland already is on thin ice, and this situation could further impact his job security if he has any culpability in this situation.

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports FOX has made the Dolphins-Carolina Panthers contest its national game at 1 p.m. ET.

Morning take: It makes sense because this is a game with many storylines. You have the drama in Miami and the stellar play of Carolina on the field.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports center Mike Pouncey (illness) may try to play Sunday against the Panthers.

Morning take: Pouncey was adamant that he wants to play. But it may not be his decision. Keep an eye on Pouncey’s progress over the next few days.

Morning take: Jordan is one of the most talented pure athletes on the team. Miami has even used him to cover tight ends. He should get an expanded role during this stretch run.
