Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel must have shown up to the annual NFL meetings this week full of optimism.
In roughly two weeks of free agency, the Dolphins brought in players that made their offense one of the league’s best.
While that haul can be competitive enough, trading for All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill turned them into contenders.
They might have given up five draft picks to acquire “Cheetah,” but they know what they are getting from the former Kansas City Chiefs star.
He and Waddle could become a menacing duo to opposing defensive backs, and cornerback Byron Jones is already terrified of what will happen to him during practice.
However, there are rumors that the Dolphins isn’t done with the overhaul.
Instead, there have been reports that seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady is on his way to the Dolphins.
That scenario would be a nice payback for a franchise that Brady terrorized for a long time when he was still with the New England Patriots.
Unfortunately, McDaniel was quick to shut down the rumors, as Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov shared.

Meirov said, “#Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel on the Tom Brady to Miami rumors: ‘Fake news.'”
Where Did The Brady To Miami Rumors Come From?
Normally, insiders or team executives can confirm if there’s some truth behind trade rumors.
But in this case, the source of which is puzzling.
Yes, Brady allegedly met Dolphins team owner Stephen M. Ross in the latter’s yacht, as former head coach Brian Flores described in his lawsuit against the team.
No one really knows where the news came from, and it might be a surprise to McDaniel as well.
