Here are five of those subplots to ponderhttp://www.miamidolphins.com/news/andy- ... camp-nears
• What’s next for Chad Henne? Is he ready ... If Henne is going to meet our expectations this season, Pennington will certainly have plenty to do with it.
• The Dolphins did not sign linebacker Karlos Dansby to merely add a complimentary piece to this defense ... The defense needed something like this a season ago. There simply weren’t enough big plays. I’m expecting Dansby to help remedy that.
• Don’t for a minute undervalue the effect new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan will have on this team ... Nolan knows defense ... You watch Nolan work, you see his intensity, you gauge the respect he commands from his players, and you know that the Dolphins have something special here.
• Jared Odrick and Koa Misi ... The Dolphins need these two players to come through ... They are quality players, both capable of becoming significant pieces on this defense. The Dolphins sure hope it happens in a hurry.
• All this talk about Brandon Marshall is justified. But don’t lose sight of a second-year receiver who has a chance to become a crucial part of this offense as well.
Brian Hartline ... Now, with the confidence he gained as a rookie, I expect to see a lot more productivity this season.
