Morning take: Ryan Tannehill on Lazor

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

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill likes the increased accountability under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.

Morning take: Lazor is demanding a lot of Miami's offensive players, and that's the best way to make them better. The Dolphins' offense will either thrive or fold under the pressure.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes the Dolphins are hoping for a quick start with new defensive tackle Earl Mitchell.

Morning take: The Dolphins signed Mitchell in place of Paul Soliai in an effort to be more dynamic at defensive tackle. Mitchell has the potential to pick up sacks, particularly late in games when the offense wears down.

  • John Congemi of the Dolphins team site writes kicker Caleb Sturgis looks ready to take the next step.

Morning take: Sturgis was the most productive member of the 2013 draft class. However, Sturgis must work on consistency and make clutch kicks in big moments.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins returner Marcus Thigpen has a lot of competition.

Morning take: Damian Williams, rookie Jarvis Landry and others will compete to take over Miami's return duties. This is the most competition Thigpen has had in years.
