It will be important for the Miami Dolphins to hit on this year’s first-round draft pick. After that, the team may not have many additional opportunities to land an impact player from the college ranks.

The Dolphins have just four picks in the 2017 NFL draft, including only two selections in the first four rounds. If that stands, Miami would set a franchise record for fewest draft picks in a year. The current Dolphins record for fewest draft picks is five selections in 2002.

The Miami Dolphins made their first major, in-house signing of the offseason over the weekend when they signed Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake to a two-year extension worth $19 million. Wake, who had one year left on his contract, received $11 million guaranteed, and the extension increases the chances of the 35-year old retiring in Miami.

But who is next to get a raise in what should be a busy offseason for the Dolphins? There are several players under contract who are looking for extensions.

You got a quarterback or not? Or are you not quite sure? These questions define the NFL offseason.

Teams that have quarterbacks are able to go about the rest of their business in relative peace, sure that the biggest roster question is taken care of, and able to attack the other questions with the confidence that certainly inspires. The Colts have a ton of work to do, sure, but they know what they have at the most important spot.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Even though Adam Gase is the youngest coach in the NFL, he has more experience with meaningful December games than many of his Miami Dolphins players.

And when Gase says the season’s about to change, he’s not talking about winter.

“The later you get in the season, with every game the importance increases,” he said Monday. “The stakes go up. Everything starts to feel different in December.”

For the Dolphins (7-4), that’s especially true this year. A six-game winning streak has them in control of their playoff future heading into Sunday’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens (6-5).

“They’re in the hunt, too,” said ninth-year pro Branden Albert, one of the Dolphins’ elder statesmen. “It’s going to be a tough game. It’s a game you want to play.”

The opportunity’s a novel one for the Dolphins, who have their best record through 11 games since 2003. They haven’t been to the playoffs since 2008, and only one current player — long snapper John Denney — was then on the team.

“I don’t know how many guys we have who have actually been through this, players who have had experience where December gets a little interesting,” Gase said. “It’s minimal.”

Gase, 38, is in his first year as an NFL head coach. But he was the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos when they reached the 2014 Super Bowl.

Many Dolphins players, including fifth-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, have never even been on a team that finished over .500. They’re looking to remedy that in the next month.

“We just have to stick to what we’re doing,” Tannehill said. “Nothing changes around here.”

One more victory would give the Dolphins their longest winning streak since 1985, but they’re not exactly dominating the league.

The past five victories have all come by a touchdown or less. On Sunday against woeful San Francisco, the Dolphins gave up a season-high 475 yards and needed a stop at their 2-yard line on the final play to win 31-24.

MIAMI — The Miami Dolphins revoked the season tickets of a group involved in a fight in Hard Rock Stadium’s upper deck during a game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The team also announced in a statement issued late Tuesday that the unidentified fans are also banned from the stadium. Miami television station WFOR reports another fan filmed the brawl in section 334 during Sunday’s game. The video shows men in Dolphins attire punching people wearing 49ers clothing.

The Dolphins said they immediately investigated and identified the season ticket holders who were involved. The team said “this type of behaviour and conduct is not acceptable.”

The Miami Dolphins have added rookie receiver Rashawn Scott to their 53-man roster, according to a source, to address the possible absence of DeVante Parker.

The Dolphins promoted the former University of Miami standout from the team’s practice squad, which is where he’s been developing all season.

Scott, who caught 91 passes for 1,247 yards and eight touchdowns during his career with the Hurricanes, has impressed Dolphins coaches all season by impersonating the opposition’s best receiver.

The Dolphins could need him this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens because Parker is sidelined by a back injury he suffered in Sunday’s 31-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers, and both of Miami’s other starting receivers are nursing injuries.

Jarvis Landry, who leads the team with 64 receptions for 733 yards, has been playing with a sprained shoulder and Kenny Stills, who leads the team with five receiving touchdowns, has been nursing a calf strain for a month.

Vice president Mike Tannenbaum promised he would turn over every rock this offseason to improve the Miami Dolphins. Without a ton of cap room, the team must be shrewd and creative with its decisions.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson and NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport report free agent Mario Williams will visit Miami this weekend. The team has a lot of questions at defensive end this offseason, and Williams is a good contingency plan if things do not go well in the next week or so with starters Olivier Vernon and Cameron Wake.
