State of the Franchise: Ascending

The Miami Dolphins got the big fish in free agency but they are still Ryan Tannehill’s team. But it will be nice to have a defense on the other side while he has improved weapons after throwing for over 4,000 yards last year. This team has a chance to do some big things this year after a great offseason.
