Free agency is about dried up, teams are now mainly focused on the draft and the Dolphins are a completely different team than they were before free agency started: WR Jarvis Landry, DT Ndamukong Suh, C Mike Pouncey, HB Damian Williams, FS Michael Thomas, TE Julius Thomas, and LB Lawrence Timmons are gone. Replaced by WR Danny Amendola, WR Albert Wilson, HB Frank Gore, OG Josh Sitton, C Daniel Kilgore, and QB Brock Osweiler.
If you are keeping track, Miami filled some needs but still have plenty of holes on their roster that need to be addressed and truth be told – they most likely will still have a couple of needs left after the draft as well but look for them to take care of that after June 1st when Suh’s $17 million is off the books.
