The Dolphins have reached a deal with veteran EDGE Melvin Ingram. The 33-year-old split 2021 between the Steelers and Chiefs, tallying just 2 sacks but racking up 51 total pressures. We'd bet on Ingram remaining light in stat production, but his arrival bolsters Miami's pass rush. According to Pro Football Talk, the Chiefs applied the seldom-used unrestricted free-agent tender to Ingram earlier this offseason. That means they'll get a compensatory pick for his departure.

Dolphins WR coach Wes Welker complimented WR Cedrick Wilson in OTAs. Welker listed the following as positives: “His smoothness, his understanding of defenses and how to run routes, how to get open, understanding the techniques of defenders and how to attack them,” the former WR said. “Just a very savvy player who has kind of played with a chip on his shoulder. We’re looking forward for him to play with that same chip here.” Wilson signed a 3-year deal worth ~$12.8 million guaranteed in March. Miami proceeded to crush his fantasy value with the trade for Tyreek Hill. Still, the former Cowboy could jump into the WR3 mix with an injury to either Hill or Jaylen Waddle.

The Dolphins are signing RB Sony Michel to a 1-year, $2.1 million deal, ESPN reports. We don't know the guaranteed portion of that contract yet, but the overall money looks nearly identical to what the team gave Raheem Mostert back in March. The 2 veterans appear headed for a summer battle to see he pairs with Chase Edmonds atop the depth chart. Mostert's recovery from the chipped knee cartilage of last season could factor in. But Miami guaranteed $1 million on the 30-year-old's contract, so the team appears to believe he'll be fine.

The Dolphins selected WR Erik Ezukanma in Round 4 of the NFL Draft. The 22-year-old goes 6’2, 209 pounds and started for 3 seasons at Texas Tech. He never topped 48 catches, 748 yards or 6 TDs across 4 total seasons. With just average speed, Ezukanma profiles as a contested catch winner in the pros. NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein comped him to former Colt Donte Moncrief. Ezukanma will start out in a battle for Miami’s #4 job behind Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Cedrick Wilson. There’s simply not much fantasy upside here.

The Chiefs are trading WR Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins in exchange for the 29th overall pick of this year's draft, plus 2022 2nd- and 4th-round picks and 2023 4th- and 6th-rounders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill will reportedly get a contract extension from Miami that will make him among the highest-paid WRs in the league. His fantasy value takes a hit with the move. He goes from QB Patrick Mahomes to QB Tua Tagovailoa and from a pass-heavy offense to what figures to be a more balanced offense under new Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel. Hill remains arguably the most electric playmaker in the NFL, though, and should garner a big target share in Miami. He's still a WR1. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are currently left with WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon, Justin Watson, Cornell Powell and Corey Coleman. They figure to add to the group in free agency and/or the draft, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman gets sizable boosts with Hill's departure.

Update: Miami is giving Hill a 4-year, $120 million extension with $72.2 million guaranteed, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus. That $30 million per year puts Hill a couple million ahead of new Raider Davante Adams for highest-paid WR.

The Chiefs have given WR Tyreek Hill permission to seek a trade, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 2 sides have been working on a long-term deal, and Kansas City has reportedly made an offer that would make Hill 1 of the league's highest-paid WRs. But "talks have stalled," Rapoport says. The Dolphins have been among the most interested teams so far, Rapoport adds. We'd be surprised if the Chiefs let Hill get away but will certainly keep a close eye on the situation. In likely related news, Kansas City is hosting free-agent WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling on Wednesday.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets, "Jets and Dolphins are in serious talks to trade for Chiefs’ WR Tyreek Hill, per league sources. Hill and Chiefs are mulling what to do but Hill’s time in KC looks like it could be coming to an end."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dolphins are expected to sign RB Raheem Mostert. The veteran RB, of course, played under new Miami HC Mike McDaniel in San Francisco, where McDaniel spent 2021 as OC after 4 seasons as run-game coordinator. We'll see about the plan for Mostert in a backfield that has already added RB Chase Edmonds in free agency. Mostert is going in the late rounds of early best-ball drafting, which gives him upside at a low-risk price. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a 1-year, $3.25 million deal.

The Dolphins are re-signing WR Preston Williams to a 1-year deal, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Williams totaled just 16 targets across 8 games last season and isn't likely to turn fantasy relevant in an offense that has since added WR Cedrick Wilson and RB Chase Edmonds and franchise-tagged TE Mike Gesicki.

QB Teddy Bridgewater will be signing a 1-year deal with the Dolphins, according to multiple reports. He's expected to serve as QB Tua Tagovailoa's backup.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 3-year, $22.8 million deal with WR Cedrick Wilson, according to multiple reports. Wilson, who turned 26 in November, has seen his role increase each year. He garnered 61 targets in 2021, logging 4 starts thanks to Michael Gallup's injury. The new contract says he'll join Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker among Miami's top 3 at the position. With TE Mike Gesicki also back (franchise tag), Dolphins targets could be spread a little thin.

The Dolphins signed RB Chase Edmonds to a 2-year deal worth $12.6 million ($6.1 million guaranteed). Edmonds gives a barren Miami backfield some much-needed speed (and skill). In 2021, he set career highs in carries (116) and yards (592) while matching a career-high in YPC (5.1). The 26-year-old (in April) has also racked up 96 catches over the past 2 years. Miami might still address RB with a top-3 round pick in the draft, but for now, Edmonds is the clear lead RB.

RB Raheem Mostert is "making a full recovery and will be ready to play this season," agent Brett Tessler tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mostert is rehabbing a knee-cartilage injury and went for testing this week under Dr. Dan Cooper in Dallas. Mostert is set to hit free agency next week. There have been rumors of interest from both sides on him re-signing with the 49ers. Mostert is a low-risk shot late in current best-ball fantasy football drafts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Dolphins have placed the franchise tag on TE Mike Gesicki. That keeps him from reaching the free-agent market. Gesicki finished 9th, 7th and 12th among TEs in PPR scoring the past 3 years and should be well set up for TE1-level production for at least the near future. We'll see whether he and Miami agree to a long-term deal ahead of the season. Gesicki is a solid value in early fantasy-football drafting, carrying a TE11 ADP on Underdog.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs have entered contract talks with WR Tyreek Hill. The 28-year-old is scheduled to count ~$21 million against the cap in 2022, a contract year. 2021 produced 1,239 yards and 9 TDs on a career-high 111 catches. He carries a Round 1 ADP in early best ball drafting.

In addition to the rumored nearing deal with WR Michael Gallup, the Cowboys also believe they can retain WR Cedrick Wilson in the wake of moving WR Amari Cooper and his contract. Like Gallup, Wilson is set to hit free agency this month. Wilson set career highs with 61 targets, 45 catches, 602 yards and 6 TDs in 2021, benefitting from Gallup losing half the season to injuries. If he does re-sign with Dallas, Wilson should be the front-runner for the #3 role -- likely settling in as the primary slot guy. Wilson spent 90% of his pass snaps in the slot last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe considers Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki a “viable candidate” for the franchise tag. Gesicki, 26, just set career highs in catches (73) and yards (780). He’d surely garner plenty of interest on the open market. But the Dolphins — projected to have the most cap space league-wide — can easily retain Gesicki’s services. We’ll see if new HC Mike McDaniel considers Gesicki a fit for an offense that emphasizes blocking out of TEs/WRs.

The Dolphins have agreed to terms with Mike McDaniel to become the team's next HC. McDaniel spent 2021 as San Francisco's OC after serving as the run-game coordinator the previous 4 seasons. McDaniel arrived with Kyle Shanahan, whom he had also worked under with the Falcons, Browns, Washington and Texans. McDaniel got his NFL start as an intern with the 2005 Broncos, coached by Mike Shanahan. So we should expect a strong Shanahan influence on McDaniel's offensive approach in Miami. He inherits an offense with QB Tua Tagovailoa heading into Year 3 and WR Jaylen Waddle coming off a terrific debut campaign. Plenty of questions need to be answered, though, with "TE" Mike Gesicki and multiple WRs facing free agency. The Dolphins also sport an unsettled backfield that found Duke Johnson leading in rushing yards per game last season. This will be an interesting offense to watch through the offseason, especially because McDaniel looks like a potential plus for the unit.

Cardinals RBs Chase Edmonds (ribs, toe) and James Conner (ribs) are active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Rams. Edmonds looks like the healthier of the 2 after getting in a full practice on Saturday and being left off the final injury report. Conner only got in a limited practice on Saturday and was listed as questionable.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. He was a full-go on Wednesday, limited on Thursday and full again on Friday. Hill should be ready to play his usual role this weekend.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) was downgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice after being a full-go on Wednesday. We're guessing that Kansas City is just playing it safe ahead of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers, but we'll get another update on Hill on Friday afternoon.
