Dolphins Shopping Waived Players

The Miami Dolphins have not yet added anyone to their roster from the free agent market but that doesn’t mean they won’t or that they haven’t been awarded any claims they put in following yesterdays release of 22 players. According to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel, the Dolphins are actively shopping for a tight end.

The Dolphins opted to keep Charles Clay, Dion Sims, and Gator Hoskins on Saturday but they will run two tight end sets which means they need another tight end. The market was not saturated with veterans at the position yesterday so the Dolphins may have to turn to possible trade partners and frankly there are not a lot of options available to them.

The Dolphins added Arthur Lynch in the draft but he has been placed on IR although he would not have likely made a big impact if they hadn’t. The Dolphins have been toiling with the position since Bill Parcells came to town in 2008. The team settled on Anthony Fasano but failed to draft his replacement instead opting for mid-round talents who had a lot of maturing to do.

In addition to the tight-end position the Dolphins should be looking at options along the offensive line. The team is better than last season but could use more quality depth. Linebacker is another position that the team should look at as well as safety.

Waiver wire acquisitions should start being announced soon.
