NFL Notes: Dolphins, Saints, Seahawks



  • There were reports that the Dolphins had interest in Memphis QB Riley Ferguson, but Barry Jackson says Miami never pursued him after this year’s draft.
  • According to Jackson, the Dolphins did, however, show some interest in Texas Tech QB Nic Shimonek before he signed with the Chargers.
  • Jackson notes that if Ryan Tannehill suffers another season-ending injury in 2018, the Dolphins will have positioned themselves to get the top quarterback in the 2019 draft based on who they have backing up Tannehill.
  • As for signing their draft class, Jackson reports that the Dolphins have indicated that they probably won’t sign their full class until June, when $17 million of dead money will come off of their books following the release of DT Ndamukong Suh.



Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed Sunday that S Earl Thomas is skipping voluntary workouts and they aren’t sure if he’ll be in attendance for offseason workouts.

“We’ll find out. We’ve got to communicate,” Carroll said, via Brady Henderson. “Phase 2 doesn’t look like it’s suiting him right now, so we’ll see, we’ll see what’s happening. Phase 3 is around the corner for us, so we’ll see. We’ve got one more week of Phase 2.
