Long was the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.

Long suffered a torn Achilles on Nov. 13th.

In his statement, posted on Twitter, announcing his retirement, he said his rehab from the Achilles injury has made him "realize that although my heart and mind still want to play, my body is telling me something completely different."

Stephen Ross Gave Dolphins OK To Take A Knee

Apr 4, 2017 8:01 AM

Stephen Ross told Miami Dolphins players before last season's opener that taking a stand by taking a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick was fine.

Michael Thomas said after explaining his concerns to Ross, the owner replied: "I've got y'all's back 100 percent."

"I remember that like it was yesterday," the defensive back said. "With everything racing through our minds, trying to decide if that was something we would actually go through with, of taking a knee. ... September 11th -- that's a whole different aspect.

"I saw Mr. Ross come in the locker room. I'm going up to him, trying to explain to him in a way, letting him know, like, 'Look, we're thinking about doing this, thinking about taking a knee.' And for him to stop me and say, 'Look, Mike, whatever y'all choose to do today, I've got y'all's back 100 percent' -- that’s a testament to what type of person he is, how he truly feels about equality for all, and the efforts he's made with the RISE program. It's great to have the owner of the Dolphins have that perspective.

"It'd be great to see more owners take after him."

The RISE program (the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality) was founded by the owner in 2015 to use his sports platform for social causes.

Dolphins Waive Dion Jordan After Failed Physical

Mar 31, 2017 8:56 PM

The Miami Dolphins waived former 2013 first-round pick Dion Jordan on Friday after he failed a physical.

The move will save the Dolphins $4.225 million in salary for 2017.

The Dolphins moved up from No. 12 to No. 3 four years ago to select Jordan out of Oregon.

 Jordan had just three career sacks and multiple NFL suspensions for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He hasn't played in a game since the 2014 season.

The Dolphins kept Jordan under contract the past two years because of his potential.

Adam Gase Wants Ryan Tannehill To Be More Aggressive

Mar 29, 2017 8:18 AM

Adam Gase isn't worried about Ryan Tannehill making mistakes, he simply wants the quarterback to be more aggressive.

Gase wants the Miami Dolphins quarterback to take more chances with his arm and legs.

"Just be more aggressive,' Gase said. "I really want him to feel comfortable that his decision is going to be right. If he feels like something is not really happening the way he wants, escape from the pocket and not hesitate and worry about, Did I miss something? He's a perfectionist so he wants to be able to stand back there and go through his progression, go one to two to his checkdown. Guys that have athletic ability, that can run, want to prove they can be a great pocket passer. All I care about is getting the first down and scoring points."

Dolphins, Kiko Alonso Agree Upon Four-Year Extension

Mar 22, 2017 8:28 AM

The Miami Dolphins have signed Kiko Alonso to a four-year contract extension.

"It means everything," Alonso said. "This is where I want to be. I'm just excited that it's official that I'm staying here."

Alonso led the Dolphins with 115 tackles last season. Miami gave Alonso a first-round tender earlier this month to prevent the linebacker, a restricted free agent, from exploring his options with other teams.

Dolphins Acquire Julius Thomas From Jaguars For Branden Albert

Feb 20, 2017 8:48 PM

The Miami Dolphins have acquired Julius Thomas and a 2018 first round pick from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for Branden Albert and a 2017 seventh round pick.

Thomas also will restructure his contract upon completion of the trade. He is expected to be in Miami on Tuesday to meet with the Dolphins.

With the acquisition of Thomas, Miami has filled a major need at tight end. Former starters Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims suffered through injuries and inconsistency, and both will be unrestricted free agents in March.

Thomas worked with Adam Gase when both were with the Denver Broncos.

Feb 18, 2017 5:49 PM

The Miami Dolphins and Cameron Wake have agreed upon a two-year extension worth $19 million with $11 million guaranteed.

Wake overcame adversity last year by bouncing back from a season-ending Achilles injury in 2015 to lead the Dolphins with 11.5 sacks. He made his fifth career Pro Bowl as a result and is one of Miami's emotional leaders.

Miami cleared cap room earlier this week with the release of former defensive linemen Mario Williams and Earl Mitchell.
