Emmanuel Ogbah had a good season in 2020 and the Miami Dolphins added a top draft prospect to play on the opposite side but he is in the final year of his contract.
Ogbah helped Miami fans appreciate the value of Cameron Wake and also helped Dolphins fans forget about the Charles Harris mistake. Ogbah was good in 2020 and this year he is expected to be better if he stays healthy. Miami invested the 18th overall pick on Jaelan Phillips to man the end position on the opposite side.
If anything in Miami history has taught us it is that two top edge rushers is far better than one. Miami has had a lot of success when their DEs are paired with another equally solid DE on the opposite side.
The Dolphins have struggled to find solid DEs since Wake left and while Phillips has a lot of high-end potential, there are still concerns over his health history and Miami would be smart to get Ogbah extended at some point this year and avoid having him hit free agency next off-season. They will probably take a reactive approach meaning they will wait to see what Ogbah does this year but I would expect him to be re-signed in January ahead of the market opening in 2022.
