Following a down year in 2015, where the team finished in last place in the AFC East at 6-10, but showed glimpses of what their offense could be. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill enters his fifth season as the starter, and looks to build off of a strong 4,000+ yard, 24 touchdown-12 interception season. Tannehill is looking like the first consistent star quarterback Miami has had since Dan Marino. His top target Jarvis Landry is among the league's most productive receivers, and the Fins have high hopes for Devante Parker. The Dolphins hope to add more balance with their ground attack, adding former All-Pro Arian Foster to the backfield. Foster is in the mix to start along with Jay Ajayi and former Alabama star Kenyan Drake, who the team drafted in the third round. Miami benefits from a solid offensive line, featuring Branden Albert and Mike Pouncey, and added talented, yet controversial tackle Laremy Tunsil at No. 13 overall. The defense lost Pro Bowl safety Brent Grimes to free agency, as he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Reshad Jones returns at safety after his first Pro Bowl selection and will be asked to anchor the secondary along with former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell. The Dolphins do have arguably the best pass rush in the NFL, with All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and defensive end Cameron Wake leading the way. If former first overall pick Mario Williams and former first rounder Dion Jordan can provide more production, Miami will be scary to opposing offenses. Expect the Dolphins to improve significantly from a last place division finish in 2015, and with quarterback Tom Brady missing the first four games for the New England Patriots, the AFC East is an interesting division with the unpredictable New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.
