Morning take: Gamble won't interview

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

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports Tom Gamble backs out of the Dolphins’ general manager race.

Morning take: Gamble, who was one of the favorites, changed his mind and decided not to interview with the Dolphins. Salguero reports Gamble didn’t like the structure that Miami’s general manager and head coach would be equals.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes new Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor will let his talent dictate the offense.

Morning take: That sounds good in theory. But there will be some core principles Lazor brings from Philadelphia. A West Coast scheme and good tempo will be two of them.

Morning take: One of Lazor’s primary jobs is to make sure Tannehill reaches his full potential in Year 3. The futures of Joe Philbin, Lazor and others may depend on it.

Morning take: The pair didn’t know each other well before the hire. But both coaching futures are tied together and will be key for Miami’s possible turnaround.
