  2. The 35 year old, Miami native is looking to end his career where is all started. Frank Gore is a Miami Dolphin in 2018, but what does he have left? Gore has been a steady force from the running back position since he was drafted out the University of Miami in 2005. The No.5 all-time leading rusher in NFL history, has only missed the 1000 yard mark, four seasons out of thirteen. His least productive season came as a rookie, when he only rushed for 608 yards. Five seasons later he rushed for 803 yards, only playing in 11 games due to injury. (According to Pro-Football-Reference.com) Once he left San Francisco for Indianapolis, he never had less  than 960 rushing yards. Doing so over 30 years old, and carrying the ball 260 times each season. So what’s my point? Frank Gore’s running style has always has been built off of power, balance, and a forward lean that allows him to go forward more times than not. The Dolphins can expect the same Frank Gore we have seen the last three season’s for the Colts, here’s why. T
  3. We saw a plethora of players earn huge paydays once free agency opened this past March. Whether it was players signing long-term deals in free agency or being extended to even larger contracts, a whole heck of a lot of cash was thrown around by NFL teams.We can expect this to continue leading into the 2018 season, during the season itself and when free agency gets going following the year.Here’s a look at one player from each NFL team set to cash in big time with strong performances this coming season. That includes youngsters with a whole lot to prove and a few veterans who are still waiting for their huge paydays.Los Angeles Rams: Marcus Peters Recently acquired from Kansas City, this still young 25-year-old two-time Pro Bowler has an opportunity to earn a whole lot of cash long term by excelling in Wade Phillips defense this coming season. Los Angeles already picked up the 2019 option on Peters’ rookie deal, pretty much guaranteeing him north of $9 million for that season. But with 24 forced turnovers in t
  4. Free agent quarterback Matt Moore is willing to wait for the right deal. The former Dolphins signal-caller had conversations with the Chiefs and Texans earlier this offseason, but is now considering waiting until after the season begins to sign anywhere, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com (on Twitter) hears. Moore, 34 in August, may survey the QB landscape to see which team needs help. That probably means that Moore is waiting to see if another quarterback gets injured in camp, giving him an opportunity to jump on board and stick on a roster.It’s not clear whether the Dolphins had much interest in re-signing Moore this year, but he apparently felt betrayed by the team last year when they signed Jay Cutler to replace Ryan Tannehill after his injury. In January, Moore resolved to sign elsewhere. Since then, the Dolphins have added Brock Osweiler and Bryce Petty to the mix. David Fales is also under contract and pushing to make the final cut.The Chiefs’ interest in Moore was previously reported, but word of the Texans’ i
  5. Free agent safety Kenny Vaccaro is one of the guys we’ve been waiting on for a while to land a new gig as one of the best remaining free agents in the league. The former New Orleans Saints safety might not have to wait much longer.According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Vaccaro has already had a visit with the Miami Dolphins. On Monday night, he’ll be in Indianapolis for a visit with the Colts, and if he leaves Indy without a deal, he’s headed to meet up with the New York Jets.Of those three teams, Indianapolis seems like the best fit, for both the player and the team. The Colts have need of secondary help. Signing Vaccaro to play with second-year star in the making Malik Hooker would be a smart move.In five seasons with the Saints, Vaccaro started 67 games, racking up 385 tackles, eight interceptions, 29 pass deflections, 7.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, three recoveries and a defensive touchdown.
