Morning take: Dion Jordan factor

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

  • ESPN.com NFL InsiderInsider Field Yates writes it's time for Dolphins second-year defensive end Dion Jordan to step up.

Morning take: Some of it was poor coaching. Miami's staff wasn't sure how to use Jordan's athleticism and couldn't find him enough playing time on the field. There should be no excuses this season.

  • The Finsiders discusses Dolphins defensive back Don Jones' reinstatement.

Morning take: Jones made a mistake by criticizing Michael Sam on social media. Jones apologized and went through the necessary steps to return. Now, he must learn from his mistakes.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post takes a look at new Dolphins linebacker Chris McCain.

Morning take: The Dolphins need help at linebacker, but McCain is a long shot to make the team. He will try to prove himself starting Friday at rookie minicamp.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says tailback Knowshon Moreno can do it all.

Morning take: Moreno is solid in blitz pickup, which is where the Dolphins struggled mightily last season. He must stay healthy and productive.
