Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:
Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes is making his mark.
Morning take: Grimes has been a tremendous pickup for the Dolphins. He will be a free agent in 2014 and should be the team’s highest offseason priority.
Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins defensive tackles Paul Soliai and Randy Starks also are playing for contracts.
Morning take: The Dolphins are expected to keep one. Soliai is the better fit due to his ability to stuff the run. Starks most likely will get his money elsewhere next year.
Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says it’s time for the Dolphins to start over if they don’t go 9-7.
Morning take: It could be playoffs or bust for some in Miami’s organization. General manager Jeff Ireland certainly is in the hot seat after spending $100 million in guaranteed money to put this team together. These final weeks are crucial.
Andy Cohen of from the Dolphins team website writes Miami must play its best game of the season to beat the Carolina Panthers (7-3).
Morning take: Carolina is the hottest team in the league and a bad matchup for Miami. But the Dolphins have enough talent to make this game interesting. But I’m still picking the Panthers to win.
