The Miami Dolphins 2021 free agency won’t be like 2020, but they could still make a big splash
In this, I will only be counting on cutting Wilson and not using the idea of trading Parker or McCain because I think the former is more likely than the latter.
So the Dolphins would now enter free agency with $26.5 million in cap to spend. Resigning Ryan Fitzpatrick, Vince Biegel, Matt Haack, would give the Dolphins probably cost the Dolphins between $8-12 million in cap.
So with the remainder of the cap left not needed to sign rookies, the Dolphins should look at adding former Indianapolis Colts LB Anthony Walker Jr.
At times this season, the Dolphins struggled against the run, Walker is a versatile defender who would fit in nicely next to Jerome Baker. This year for the Colts, Walker has played next to Darius Leonard and was able to compile 92 tackles, 1 interception, and 5 pass deflections. He did not get any sacks, but that should change in Brian Flore’s defense.
If they can’t get Walker Jr, the team could also look at Buffalo Bills linebacker Matt Milano, who has been an impressive piece of that stifling Bills defense on the season.
If the team does manage to clear more cap than expected, they could target Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Chris Godwin, Detroit Lions wideout Marvin Jones Jr, or Chicago Bears wideout Allen Robinson to improve the wideout core in addition to adding a rookie wideout.
