In all, the Miami Dolphins have 33 potential free agents in 2022 but most of these players, unlike those above are far easier to replace.
The good news for the Dolphins is that many of their potential 2022 free agents could be added on low-end contracts. Most of them are valued near $1 million per season or less according to Spotrac.com.
The remaining unrestricted free agents consist of quite a few players on one-year deals.
Jacoby Brissett – If the Dolphins get comfortable with Reid Sinnett, Brissett won’t be back in 2022.
Elandon Roberts – Roberts is a perfect depth addition to the linebacker group and could be brought back relatively cheap and likely on a short deal.
Matt Skura – The Dolphins are still searching for a long-term solution at center but Skura most likely won’t be it.
Durham Smythe – Interestingly enough, I think Smythe stays if Gesicki leaves.
Mack Hollins – Hollins has a lot of upside but the Dolphins WRs are deep but he may get this year to prove his value.
Michael Palardy – If Palardy does well punting this year, the Dolphins will bring him back but it won’t be a deal like Jason Sanders received this year.
Malcolm Brown – Brown is on a one-year deal and the Dolphins will need to figure something out next year with their RB unit and Brown will get a one-year audition to prove he belongs.
Vince Biegel – Biegel returns this year after a training camp injury sidelined him all of 2020 but now he will have a shot to prove he can provide the depth Miami needs at the position.
Robert Foster – Foster was added this year and faces an uphill climb to make the roster as the Dolphins are deep at WR.
The rest of the UFAs – Justin Coleman, John Jenkins, Duke Riley, Brennan Scarlett, D.J. Fluker, Adam Pankey, Cameron Tom, Jason McCourty.
Restricted free agents – Jamal Perry, Nik Needham, Calvin Munson, Sam Equavoen, Patrick Laird.
Exclusive rights free agents – Tyler Gauthier, Salvon Ahmed, Benito Jones, Tino Ellis, Jomal Wiltz, Nate Holley
