Cutting and trading certain key players could be an option for the Miami Dolphins.
Albert Wilson could be the key player cut this offseason:
The toughest part of the NFL is remembering it’s a business and not everyone can stay. So, the one player I believe would be most beneficial for the Dolphins to move past this season is Albert Wilson.
Wilson, who opted out last season, would save the Dolphins $2.85 million if they released him. Yes the Dolphins need more wideouts, but they can answer this issue in the draft, especially since there is a deep wideout class in 2021.
Wilson is a good player, but questions about his hip and shaky 2019 season should be considered. Taking the money he leaves and using it on another player might be very vital, especially knowing the needs that this team needs.
In terms of trading players, it is quite possible that the Dolphins could field class for guys such as Bobby McCain, Devante Parker, Xavien Howard and possibly Ereck Flowers. While it could be beneficial to move a player and gain the cap space and draft picks, I think these guys are better suited staying on the Dolphins.
Between those four names, however, listening to offers on Parker and Mccain might be better for the team.
In terms of cap space to make other signings, trading Parker and Mccain could open the door to adding possible upgrades at different positions. Brandon Jones seems ready to start for the Dolphins, and Parker’s injury history is beginning to seem detrimental for the Dolphins.
