The Miami Dolphins have three good safeties, but is it possible one of them could be on the way out?
Rookie Jevon Holland and second-year safety Brandon Jones impressed during the 2021 season and fans should be excited for this safety tandem heading into the future. But their growth could mean the end of Eric Rowe’s time with the Miami Dolphins.
If the Dolphins do choose to move on from Rowe, they would need to bring in another safety. Local prospect Bubba Bolden from the Miami Hurricanes would be a solid option.
The former USC Trojan transferred to Miami and had an up and down career there due to injuries. When he did play he was an impact player and a leader for the team.
In three years with the Hurricanes, Bolden was a tackling machine with 127 tackles. With a 6-foot-3 frame, Bolden is a bigger player than Rowe who also plays well in the box.
Bolden could fit in well with Jones and Holland as each would be able to rotate around the field. The Dolphins’ versatility on the back end is one of the team’s best abilities and should continue to take full advantage of their talented young safeties.
