The Miami Dolphins have a brand-new look and swagger. What are the five most important off season moves the team has made thus far?

The Miami Dolphins entered the off season and free agency period with some of the most money to spend of any NFL team, and they made some of the biggest splashes of the early stages. The team looks drastically different on the offensive side of the ball, while the defense that was responsible for keeping the team in contention in 2021 has returned every starter.

Cedrick Wilson was added to further the quickness of the weapons around Tua Tagovailoa, and the team was able to bring back one of the more familiar targets in Mike Gesicki.

If anything, Hill was the cherry on top of what had already been a successful off season. We are already salivating over video clips from April mini-camps, envisioning what this high-powered offense could potentially become.
