Miami Dolphins Top 3 Free Agent Moves


The Miami Dolphins have made a splash in Free Agency the past few years, and this off season has been no different.  No moves will prove fruitful until the start of the season, but adding DT Ndamukong Suh can only benefit the team.  While the big man should help Miami take the next step in beating Tom Brady and the Patriots, signing the run-stopper does not make my top 3 ‘Fins Free Agent signings.

1. Adding TE Jordan Cameron:

Adding Cameron gives Miami something they haven’t had since the days of Randy McMichael – a seam threat and red zone threat tight end. Even with hybrid FB/TE Charles Clay gone, the Dolphins add the new regime of tight end with Cameron, who plays more like a basketball player than a traditional blocking tight end.  The 6 foot 5 big man can jump and high point the ball, and can create match up problems anywhere on the field.  Without a doubt, look for him to become Ryan Tannehill‘s new favorite red zone target, an area of the field the Dolphins have struggled to score touchdowns in.  With Cameron comes more Miami Dolphin touchdowns, and therefore more Miami Dolphins victories.  A great addition for the ‘Fins.

2. Adding WR Kenny Stills:

Who was the most efficient and successful deep ball receiver last season? Was it Mike Wallace?  No. It was newly added WR Kenny Stills.  That’s right, Stills caught over 60% of deep balls thrown to him according to Pro Football Focus.  In addition, stills is significantly cheaper and much younger than Mike Wallace.  No, he has not proven as much as Wallace has, but part of that is due to Stills only having two years experience in the league.  One thing Stills is not known for is quitting on his team.  I like the Dolphins going younger with their receiving corps, and I think Stills will have a breakout season next year.  Now, it’s time for him to build chemistry with RT17 and Bill Lazor.

  • 3. Releasing LBs Philip Wheeler and Dannell Ellerbe, WR Brian Hartline:

    I can’t stress how glad I am that Miami got rid of Wheeler and Ellerbe.  Neither worked well in Miami’s 4-3 system and neither player was worth their ridiculous salary that Jeff Ireland got them just a few off seasons ago.  With the increase in production from Jelani Jenkins, and Dion Jordan‘s ability to play outside linebacker standing up, these moves just made too much sense not to be carried out.  Look for Miami to replace these LBs through the draft, where there is an abundance of viable linebackers.  As for Hartline, as much as I liked him as a locker room presence, he simply did not produce as much last season as he was costing the team.  Best of luck to Hartline, but with Jarvis Landry‘s rookie emergence, it was only a matter of time for Hartline.

    What do you think of Miami’s activity thus far?
