Miami morning take: Dolphins in playoffs?

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

Morning take: It will take nine or 10 wins for the Dolphins to make the postseason from the AFC. It’s possible, but Miami must get off to a fast start in the first five games, which won’t be easy.

Morning take: Miami’s rankings range from the mid-teens to mid-20s. The Dolphins are going to have to earn respect on the field first.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes is preparing for picks.

Morning take: Grimes had a great training camp and quickly became Miami’s lead corner. As long as Grimes stays healthy, he should make an impact on the defense.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel takes an in-depth look at the Dolphins’ safety tandem of Reshad Jones and Chris Clemons.

Morning take: Miami finally has continuity at the safety position. The Dolphins re-signed both starting safeties to new contracts with the expectation that their chemistry together would boost their secondary.
