DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins’ defense seems stout, the receiving corps looks improved and the addition of nine rookies and eight free agents has buoyed optimism the team is poised for a playoff push beginning with Sunday’s opener at Cleveland.
But to snap a streak of four consecutive losing seasons, the Dolphins will need for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to make significant progress in his second NFL season. And he knows it.
Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman predicted Tannehill will make the biggest leap forward of any second-year quarterback this year, which is saying something because the group also includes Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden.
