Miami Dolphins: 1 free agent wish for every position
CB: Desmond King
Unless some high-profile changes are made, the Miami Dolphins will have one of the more expensive secondaries in the league yet again next season. Two of the premiere players on the team grace each cornerback position, so don’t look for a splashy free agent signing in that department. But the team could use some reliable depth on an affordable contract, and Desmond King would be a solid addition as a #3 cornerback. He has played in 15 or more games in each of his five NFL seasons, and was a First Team All Pro back in 2018.
S: Jabrill Peppers
Jevon Holland and Brandon Jones should have the starting safety spots locked down, but there may not be much else on the roster given the likely departures of Eric Rowe and Jason McCourty. Miami will certainly have to dig in to the free agent pool to sign a backup or two, and Jabrill Peppers could be one of them. He is coming off of an ACL injury which could affect his availability for early season activities, but he may be worth the flyer for the Dolphins, especially if he is affordable.
K: No one
The Dolphins aren’t going to sign another kicker. Jason Sanders struggled last season, but he is paid nearly top dollar, and Miami will more than likely give him another shot to redeem himself in 2021.
P: Andy Lee
Michael Palardy was average at best in 2021, and the Dolphins will likely be looking elsewhere for punting services in 2022. I’m not going to pretend that I know who the best punter available is, but one of the options is the ageless Andy Lee, who will be 40 years old at the start of the season. I want it just for the nostalgia.
