Miami Dolphins & NFL 2023 NFL Free Agents

Now that the Super Bowl is over the off-season is in full effect. Some teams are closer than others and some teams are not as close as they think because every year teams that make the playoffs, 3 or more fail to follow up the next season. The ones that are perennial contenders are more likely to win a SB or two in the window they have to do so.  

Our Dolphins seem to have assembled the roster and coaching staff to make another payoff run in 2023 but just like every team in the league they have some holes to fill and free agency is where they all begin to plug their holes the area of weakness on their respective teams. 

Miami also has needs and so I have put together what I feel are Miami’s team needs for the upcoming 2023 season. (Offensive line, Tight end, Running back, Linebacker, Cornerback)

Some they will fill in free agency and others in the draft. Free agency part 1 comes first then the draft and then part two of free agency. 

First Miami needs to address their own 27 free agents and who they want back. I put the list of free agents and if they are in bold, they are the players I want back or added to this roster next year, starting with Miami’s own free agents. 

On March 15 (4 p.m. ET) The 2023 league year and free agency period begin. All player contracts expire at this time, and the trading period for 2023 begins.

Clubs can also begin signing free agents.Jan 18, 2023
