Former Hurricane quarterback Malik Rosier is headed to the Dolphins’ mini-camp starting on May 10. The Miami product was recently eligible for the 2019 Draft a couple of weeks ago but went undrafted. But the rookie has accepted an invitation and will be in attendance for the Miami Dolphins rookie mini-camp

It goes without saying that Rosier is a longshot to make the roster, but he could earn a possible third-string spot if he impresses and beats out Jake Rudock during training camp. If that’s not the case, then he could potentially be stashed on the practice squad.

The news was broken on Tuesday morning by Barry Jackson.

Malik Rosier had a rough career during his time at Miami, especially during the Mark Richt era. During the 2018 season, Rosier was eventually replaced by second-year N’Kosi Perry. Neither was very effective in an extremely underwhelming year for the Hurricanes.

Rosier likely has a small window of opportunity to make his mark in the NFL, and I’m hard-pressed to see him make his career in Miami with a QB room that features both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen.

Regardless, it’s cool seeing the Dolphins inviting local athletes into the mix to give them a shot.

I am an Ohio University alum and I’ve been living in Pittsburgh for the last two years. I’ve been a Dolphins fan since I was a kid and I picked them because I liked the old-school logo. It grew from that as I got older and I luckily caught the tail end of Dan Marino’s career. It’s stuck ever since and now I’m an upstart, wild-and-free Dolphins beat writer, loving every second of it.

Miami Dolphins Madden 20 Ratings

Oliver Candido



With Madden 20 hitting shelves on August 2nd, EA Sports has released the official player and team ratings for the game.

Here are the top 5 rated Miami Dolphins in Madden 20:

Kenny Stills-84

Laremy Tunsil-84

Xavien Howard-83

Reshad Jones-83

Minkah Fitzpatrick-80

Madden 20 took a different approach with ratings this year in order to create more distance between elite players and non-elite players. But with that being said, having Laremy Tunsil (who only surrendered 1 sack for all of the 2018 season) and Xavien Howard (INT leader and Pro Bowler) rated below 90 is insanity. These ratings are subject to change through out camp and preseason, so there is still hope that these ratings go up.

Here is my top 5 list of players that will most likely receive a big boost in their ratings between now and the end of the season.

Raekwon McMillan-74

Jerome Baker-76

Vincent Taylor-70

Josh Rosen-70

Minkah Fitzpatrick-80

Jerome Baker and Raekwon McMillan will have the benefit of having their Head Coach and Defensive Coordinators be former Linebacker coaches. Jerome Baker has recently put on weight to better handle his new and expanded role in the defense. Vincent Taylor was on a tear last year before his injury and now can build on his 2018 performance. Minkah Fitzpatrick should already be rated above 80, he does everything so well, so I don’t see him staying stagnant whatsoever. Josh Rosen is rated 70 due to him struggling as a rookie with Arizona but under Chad O’Shea’s system, I see Rosen elevating his game to at least reach the 80s club.

Click the link below to view the Miami Dolphins Madden 20 ratings and let me know on Twitter what you think. Is Madden and the rest of the league sleeping on the Miami Dolphins or did they get it right?

As always, be sure to stay up to date with all that is the Miami Dolphins with the Locked On Dolphins team. Training camp is quickly approaching and we will have boots on the ground to keep you updated. Fins up!

Assistant HC/QB Coach Jim Caldwell Takes Leave Of Absence

Chris Kowalewski



The Miami Dolphins have announced that Assistant HC/Quarterbacks Coach, Jim Caldwell will be taking a leave of absence from the Miami Dolphins, citing heath reasons.

Jim Caldwell brings an experienced level of coaching leadership to Miami as the Dolphins aim to mentor their young QB prospect, Josh Rosen.

Caldwell is still expected to be available as a consultant and information resource for the team through the 2019 season, but clearly there are larger pressing concerns for the 64 year old coach.

Brian Flores had surrounded himself with experienced staff heading into his debut season as Head Coach and the impact of Caldwell’s regular presence will likely only make the road a little more difficult.

Whatever the issues may be, our best wishes at Locked On Dolphins go to Coach Caldwell for a speedy and full recovery.

Dolphins Defensive Tackle Kendrick Norton Loses Arm After Car Accident

Travis Wingfield



Kendrick Norton was involved in a two-car accident late Wednesday night that resulted in the amputation of the 22-year-old’s arm. Paramedics arrived on-site with a surgeon and it has been reported that the only way to free Norton from his vehicle was to remove the arm.

The Dolphins signed Norton — a former Miami Hurricanes standout — from the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad on 19 December 2018 after placing Frank Gore on IR. Norton was set to compete for a roster spot this summer at Dolphins training camp.

Norton is in critical condition, but is expected to survive the crash. Following this devastating event it is more than likely that the young player’s NFL career has sadly come to an abrupt end.
