Miami had a relatively busy offseason. They addressed their offensive line with their first pick by taking center/guard Mike Pouncey. They brought in two running backs: Daniel Thomas out of Kansas State and Reggie Bush from New Orleans.
On defense they let go of linebacker Channing Crowder and replaced him with Kevin Burnett from the San Diego Chargers.
They added a speedster at wide receiver in Clyde Gates and signed tackle Marc Colombo from the Dallas Cowboys.
Everything was looking up for the Miami Dolphins; that is until they stepped on the field.
