Miami Dolphins were waiting for the next bomb to drop and many believed that it would almost certainly be a huge trade.

Xavien Howard was on his way out of Miami. Fans were convinced that Howard’s days in Miami were all but officially over, instead, Chris Grier handed Howard one of the biggest contracts to a corner in NFL history and in doing so, pretty much guaranteed he would remain a Dolphins player the rest of his career.

Howard was back with Miami and the Dolphins were still looking to make some moves. The next “shocker” came early when it was announced that DeVante Parker was being traded. The trade itself wasn’t a surprise as much as the fact he was heading to New England.

Parker’s exodus was not unexpected and the return, a 2023 3rd round pick wasn’t bad. Parker was never a bad player for the Dolphins he just suffered from having too many injuries that kept him off the field.

Through the good and the bad, one constant has continue to remain from late January to mid-April. Tom Brady talk will not die. Even now, the national media believe that Brady will eventually join the Dolphins, as early as next season. Only the capacity of which he does is being debated.

The NFL Draft is a short two weeks away and while Miami won’t be drafting in rounds one or two, yet, there is still plenty of time to make more moves and surprise more fans.

Through one month of the NFL 2022 season and three and a half months of the 2022 calendar year, the Miami Dolphins have reshaped their roster and given fans reason to think that maybe, just maybe, 2022 could be the year to get back to the post season. Of course, with the way this season has started, who knows how it will finish months from now, or what lies ahed in the months between.
