Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports new general manager Dennis Hickey and head coach Joe Philbin are working well together thus far.
Morning take: Philbin and former GM Jeff Ireland had a falling out that impacted the team in 2013. The Dolphins cannot have that happen again.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network believes Jonathan Martin could return to the Dolphins.
Morning take: I will believe it when I see it. The Dolphins are trying to clear themselves from this scandal as soon as possible, and bringing Martin back into that locker room is unlikely. I expect Martin to be traded or released this offseason.
Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes about the Dolphins' reaction to Michael Sam’s announcement that he is gay.
Morning take: Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said the team is not afraid to take Sam if he’s the best-available player.
Andy Kent of the Dolphins' team site takes a look at defensive end Olivier Vernon’s career season.
Morning take: Vernon led the Dolphins with 11.5 sacks. His production kept No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan on the bench.
