Dolphins' Chris McCain to move back to defensive end

Miami Dolphins linebacker Chris McCain is back to playing defensive end full time.

What It Means:

The last coaching regime thought it would be a good idea to try McCain at linebacker but that experiment flopped. "[I'm] real happy; this fills my skill sets better," said McCain. "No thinking. Just running, doing what I like to do." McCain will serve as pass-rushing depth behind veteran starters Mario Williams and Cameron Wake.

In 2015, Miami ranked just 30th in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points (NEP) per play and 31st in Adjusted Defensive Passing NEP per play.
