NFL Notes: Dolphins, Steelers, Vikings


Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he feels completely recovered from his sprained ACL and MCL which required surgery.

I feel totally normal,” Tannehill said, via James Walker of ESPN. “I felt good back in January. So my offseason has been pretty normal up to this point. … I’m fully confident in the knee and it’s not even in the back of my mind at all. Everyone is confident in the knee and what it can do and that it’s ready to go.”

Tannehill went on to say that he plans on wearing a knee brace throughout the season but does not think it will hinder his mobility.



Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said the team is still looking to find a “special” kickoff returner.

At the end of the day, there’s been a lot of talented guys that have been here and they’re fun to coach, but we’re going to find someone that’s a pretty special kickoff returner,” Priefer said, via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.

Fifth-round WR Rodney Adams, seventh-round WR Stacy Coley, and veteran CB Marcus Sherels are mentioned as possible candidates on the team.

Maybe it’s by committee,” Priefer said. “We have several candidates and I’m excited about that. We drafted two guys who could do it. We’ve got guys on the roster that want to do it.”
