Miami Dolphins Ready To Let More Walk


The Miami Dolphins are all in on Ndamukong Suh but with that comes the revelation that other players will no longer be a part of the bigger picture moving forward. As the beginning of free agency slowly creeps towards it’s start, and the NFL threatens to investigate all of the rampant “so and so has agreed to a deal” rumors, players with the Dolphins are still wondering where they are going to play in 2015.

Here is a look at some of what is going on.

More from Dolphins News

Jared Odrick – all but 100% leaving. It would be a major development if Odrick stayed. Rumors suggest that he will draw heavy interest from the black hole known as the Raiders and the other side of that hole Jacksonville. All things being equal Jacksonville keeps him in Florida and out of that 13% tax bracket in Cali.

Derrick Shelby – the Dolphins have opted to no tender the up can coming defensive lineman. Many believed that Shelby would benefit from the addition of Suh but that appears not to be the case. Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel tweeted that Shelby will be free to test the market. (correction: Kelly has corrected his tweet to say the Dolphins have until Tuesday at 4:00 to tender)

Michael Thomas – there is no reason the Miami Dolphins should not re-sign Michael Thomas. Until his pec injury last year he was one of the brightest spots on the Dolphins special teams and an up and coming performer on defense.

Brandon Graham – Miami took an early interest in Graham but apparently have backed off. Graham signed a contract to stay with the Eagles.

    And there you go, Eagles re-signing Brandon Graham per @AdamSchefter. A #Dolphins dream born and died today. — Andrew Abramson (@AbramsonPBP) March 9, 2015

Brandon Fields – it is looking like we have seen the last of Fields in Miami…or at least a chance. It’s being reported by multiple members of the media that Fields will be asked to restructure his over $3 million dollar cap hit salary or could likely face being released. Fields had an off year last year after making the Pro-Bowl in 2013.

Andre Johnson – finally after 12 seasons in the NFL Andre Johnson is a free agent. He will test the waters and someone will offer him a one or two year deal loaded with incentives. Don’t be surprised if the Dolphins at least look in the Miami natives’ general direction.
