Well after spending time upgrading the coaching staff the Dolphins have two more very important issues to address this off-season and I will focus on both in the order they arrive that is why I will first address Free Agency as that kicks off in March and I personally want Miami to honor their word and take care of their own and two players are atop my list of players Miami should take interest in this year in free agency.
One thing you will note in my list is that every player is in their twenties and none over 27 as I do not feel it is wise to sign any free agent in their thirties and unless the need is desperate I would not go above 27.
Jarvis Landry and Ja’Wuan James are both players drafted and developed by Miami and I feel both should be given a second contract by the team as both are talented and bring something to the table.
The Dolphins need to stop devaluing their players and pay up. I have an issue with how they brought in other free agents and after playing one season well gave them extensions this past season but now is balking on resigning the very players they drafted and who played well for Miami.
With as much problems they have had addressing the offensive line these past few years I find it hard to understand why even some fans have just dismissed James as a possible option to resign.
Hopefully the Dolphins will do the right thing for both of our top free agents.
The rest of the players on my list are players at positions of need that Miami would do well to look into a possible fit as their stated goal is to plug as many if not all perceived holes on the team through free agency in order to go into the draft unhindered in picking a player. I happen to like that strategy.
Here is my list of players I would have no issues being in a Miami uniform next season and beyond.
- Jarvis Landry, WR, Dolphins. Age: 25
- Ja’Wuan James, OT, Dolphins. Age: 26
- DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, Cowboys. Age: 26
- Andrew Norwell, G, Panthers. Age: 26
- Lamarcus Joyner, S, Rams. Age: 27
- Sheldon Richardson, DE/DT, Seahawks. Age: 27
- Sammy Watkins, WR, Rams. Age: 25 (If Landry Is unsigned)
- Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers. Age: 27
- Trey Burton, TE, Eagles. Age: 26
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Jets. Age: 25
- Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns. Age: 25
- Kony Ealy, DE/OLB, Jets. Age: 26
