Sto­ry­line of the week

Quinn back to form: The pass rush out­side of DE Cameron Wake was non-ex­is­tent at times last sea­son. Mi­ami had 30 sacks, which ranked 26th in the league, and 101⁄2 of those came from Wake. That’s why the team ac­quired DE Robert Quinn in March. Since the Rams moved to a 3-4 de­fense a few sea­sons ago, Quinn was moved to the out­side edge line­backer, and the re­sults were mixed. He had 81⁄2 sacks in 2017, but he wasn’t play­ing his nat­u­ral po­si­tion. In Mi­ami, Quinn has moved back to de­fen­sive end and has been wreak­ing havoc in prac­tices and in pre­sea­son games. Quinn has three sacks in three pre­sea­son games. The Dol­phins are hop­ing a change of scenery will help Quinn re­dis­cover his Pro Bowl form.

Rookie watch

Ja­son San­ders and Greg Joseph are com­pet­ing to be the full-time kicker. San­ders ap­pears to have the ad­van­tage, con­vert­ing 6 of 7 field goal at­tempts dur­ing the pre­sea­son, while Joseph has made just two field goals.
