The Splash Zone 8/6/18: Dolphins Release First Depth Chart The Miami Dolphins released their first depth chart yesterday , meaning this is pretty much the same depth chart they will go with when the season starts. Marqueis Gray is listed as the team’s starting tight end after beating out the second rounder, Mike Gesicki. Heck, Gesicki is listed as the fifth string tight end so it appears he is another Dolphins draft bust in the making. All joking aside, the depth chart is going to change quite a bit between now and the end of the preseason. We’ll mostly see the non-starters play a ton during the first two preseason games and finally see the starters play a full two quarters, or more, in the third preseason game.You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.Miami Dolphins depth chart revealed; what we learnedThe Miami Dolphins unveiled their first depth chart of 2018 on Sunday.Dolphins OffenseDolphins QB Ryan Tannehill puts in extra time with rookie TE Mike GesiThe connection between Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and rookie tight end Mike Gesicki is addi...Dolphins Wide Receivers‘Let’s go!’ Miami Dolphins’ Drew Morgan tells Adam Gase to step on itDrew Morgan was signed by the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent a year ago Davon Godchaux Jersey , spent the 2017 season...Phinsider News You May Have MissedThe Splash Zone 8/5/18: Notes From Miami Dolphins Scrimmage - The PhinsiderWelcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right.

The team is getting ready to actually return to the field in a full game situation following their annual scrimmage...Phinsider Meme Central: Dolphins 2018 training camp Week 2 - The PhinsiderTraining Camp Week 2 The Denver Broncos might not be done shuffling backup quarterbacks.General manager John Elway said Tuesday that he might still sign a veteran to back up starting QB Case Keenum if he doesn't feel Chad Kelly can win games in a pinch."I'm not going to tell you we're definitely going to stand pat, but I'm not telling you we're going (in) that direction, either," Elway told 103.5 The Fox radio station in Denver.The Broncos promoted Kelly over former first-round pick Paxton Lynch this week following their contrasting performances in training camp and in the preseason opener last weekend, when Lynch threw for just 24 yards over seven series with the second string. Kelly had a pair of touchdowns in mop-up duty against the Minnesota Vikings."We've got to have confidence that that guy that's going to be the backup can play and win football games," Elway said. "And so that's why we're still in that process of trying to see if we've got that guy behind Case."Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night — we'll see how he does this week — but if something were to happen to Case , can he come in and continue to win football games for us?" Elway said. "That's the big part of the evaluation process and that's still going on."Kelly will get plenty of work with the second stringers as the Broncos host the Chicago Bears for joint practices Wednesday and Thursday before their preseason game Saturday night in Denver.Kelly, whose uncle in NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, threw for 97 touchdowns and 29 interceptions during a collegiate career that began at Clemson (2012-13), continued at East Mississippi Junior College (2014) and finished at Ole Miss (2015-16).Elway selected him with the final pick of the 2017 NFL draft, but Kelly missed his rookie season while recovering from wrist and knee injuries, watching as the Broncos rolled through quarterbacks Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Lynch during a 5-11 season.Osweiler wasn't re-signed in the offseason and Siemian was traded after Keenum's arrival in March Akeem Spence Jersey , when Elway declared the backup job up for grabs.Kelly had a solid offseason and consistently outplayed Lynch, the former Memphis QB whom Elway moved up to draft in the first round in 2016 following Peyton Manning's retirement.Kelly completed 14 of 21 passes for 177 yards, two TDs and an interception against the Vikings while the crowd serenaded him with chants of "Kelly! Kelly!""He's had a great camp, he's a competitive guy, he comes out and he works hard. He wants to be good," Elway said. "And so, he's the type of guy that you love to have on your football team. So , he did a great job the other night and we'll see how he does this week."Coach Vance Joseph said Tuesday that Lynch was mad and miffed over the switch ."He is upset. He didn't like it. He wants to know why," Joseph said. "And he has to play better. It's as simple as that. It's a competition. It's the league. Everyone's doing this. No one's not playing their best players."And it's really more about Chad. Chad has competed and Chad's played well. Because if Chad's not playing well, (Lynch) is still a 2. So, it's really more about what Chad has done from the spring to now."
