Looking ahead to Miami Dolphins 2020 cap moves and roster changes
By Brian Miller
The Miami Dolphins could overhaul their wide-receivers next season and see an exodus of Albert Wilson, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills. Parker’s contract is basically a one year deal with incentives and a 2nd year club option. If he can’t impress he won’t make to 2021.
Stills however is a bit overrated in this author’s opinion. He has the speed and talent but he can’t seem to put up decent numbers. Is that a result of the quarterback play? We may find out this year.
In 2020 Stills is slated to be the Dolphins 3rd highest paid player. If released or traded the Dolphins would save $7 million and carry only $1.7 million in dead money. There has been some early 2019 speculation that Stills could have been a cap casualty this year. He is making just over $9 million but the cap savings pre-June 1st is only $3 million. A post-June 1st release only saves the Dolphins $5 million and carries a $4 million dead money hit.
The contract and the play on the field sets up for a decision in 2020.
