Morning take: Tannehill's play speed

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

Morning take: New Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor is trying to increase Tannehill's play speed. Tannehill did make quicker decisions against the Atlanta Falcons, and it led to success.

Morning take: Jones is the second Dolphins player to violate the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs, joining Dion Jordan. He will miss the first four games but must continue to get work during the preseason to stay sharp.

  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins must handle Jones' absence.

Morning take: This is an important year for the Dolphins, and how they handle early-season losses of Jones, Jordan and Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey could define their season. It won't be easy.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins’ small-school rookies played well in the preseason opener.

Morning take: Seventh-round pick Terrence Fede (Marist) and fifth-round pick Jordan Tripp (Montana) showed well, which is a good sign. Both are fighting for roster spots.
