Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso confident in his play

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

Morning take: The Dolphins are counting on Alonso to get closer to his form of 2013, before the knee injuries. Miami’s defense needs much better linebacker play this season.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports that the Dolphins have expressed interest in free-agent cornerback Leon Hall.

Morning take: The Dolphins remain thin at cornerback, despite the recent selection of Xavien Howard in the second round of the 2016 draft. Hall is a proven veteran who knows defensive coordinator Vance Joseph’s system.

Morning take: The former second-round pick hasn’t worked out in Miami. But he’s back and trying to learn a new scheme under rookie head coach Adam Gase.
