Eric Rowe played a big part in the transformation of the Dolphins defense. Brought over with Flores in his first season as head coach, Rowe gave Miami a solid coverage option against tight ends and bigger receivers. But as the 2021 season has progressed, he has started to lose out on playing time thanks to the emergence of Jevon Holland and Brandon Jones.
Rowe makes for an obvious candidate for a trade or release as his dead cap hit plummets from $4.5 million to just $500k in 2022.
The Dolphins are going to do what they can to bolster the running game behind whoever ends up at quarterback in 2022. That could mean the end of Myles Gaskin’s tenure in Miami.
The third-year back deservedly lost his starting job late in the season as he failed to show any kind of consistency. Look for the Dolphins to address his potential absence by selecting a running back prospect in the upcoming draft.
This may be Jesse Davis’ last game in Miami, and not because he will become a free agent. It may be Jesse Davis’ last game in Miami because he has been terrible.
The veteran that was supposed to anchor a raw but talented offensive line has consistently been one of the worst of the bunch, which is a feat in of itself. It seems as though Davis spent more time picking Tua and Jacoby Brissett off of the turf than actually blocking the right side of the line. Thanks for the service. Good riddance.
