The Miami Dolphins are rumored to be heading towards a very active free agent period when and if the league new year arrives. With Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams both free agents, Tyler Thigpen a likely free agent who is rumored to be on the Buffalo Bills radar, gaps on the offensive line, defensive linebacking corp, and a need for another complimentary WR, the Dolphins have holes to fill and money supposedly to spend.
Jeff Ireland is not Bill Parcells and he has no problem spending owner Stephen Ross‘ money. With names such as Carolina RB De’Angelo Williams and Cincinnati runner Cedric Benson on tap to hit the market, as well as names across every other position, this year could be a spending spree that may see a large contingent of 4 and 5 year players hitting the streets.
So what should the Dolphins number one priority be heading into the free agent period when it opens?
