The Sun-Sentinel reports the Miami Dolphins are in the market for a WR and VP of player personnel Rick Spielman acknowledged Monday the team has talked to the agent for free agent WR Leslie Shepherd - but he won't be re-signed. The Dolphins have decided to sign a younger receiver to provide training camp depth after injuries to some of their other WRs. The team is expected to announce the signing of a receiver by Wednesday’s practice session.

The Sun-Sentinel's Chris Perkins reports the signing of WR Dedric Ward is expected to have an effect on WRs Leslie Shepherd, Tony Martin and Lamar Thomas, OT Richmond Webb and S Brock Marion. VP of player personnel, Rick Spielman, indicated Wednesday the team doesn’t have much money remaining under this year’s $67.4 million salary cap. Spielman said they had enough left to sign their draft picks. The team could restructure some other contracts to free up some cap space. When addressing the draft, Spielman said teams have called the Dolphins about their 26th pick. Spielman said the Dolphins will listen to offers. He said they could attempt to move up, or down in the draft.

Alex Marvez reports for the Sun-Sentinel Miami Dolphins DE Kenny Mixon has lost 15 pounds as he hopes to show the team he can play in its nickel and dime packages in addition to other downs. Mixon and Lorenzo Bromell will compete to replace Trace Armstrong, the pass-rush specialist who signed with Oakland. If the team adds another RB, it may be to challenge J.J. Johnson and Autry Denson as third down back as opposed to competition for starting RB Lamar Smith. As of now, it seems unlikely that WR Tony Martin will be re-signed, which means the team will be looking for another veteran WR with Leslie Shepherd a leading candidate.

The Sun-Sentinel reports the Miami Dolphins staff is spending a good deal of time at the Senior Bowl looking at WRs. "Everybody knows we're going to be looking at receivers," said Rick Spielman, the director of player personnel. "There's some good receivers down here." Smaller WRs such as Santana Moss and Snoop Minnis are probably not on the team's list. Of the Dolphins top four receivers, only Oronde Gadsden is a lock to return. Tony Martin and O.J. McDuffie may be released for salary cap reasons, and Leslie Shepherd is set to become an unrestricted free agent when the NFL's signing period begins March 2. Other areas of need for the team are OL, LB and QB.
