The Miami Dolphins hand out a lot of one-year deals and next year won’t be any different and these players should see it.

Depending on how the season progresses, the Dolphins could keep more than a few players around on one-year deals and that includes, potentially, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater is interesting. He is on a one-year deal now and not likely going to see a lot of interest to be a starter after the season. Miami could view him as a long-term answer to their backup QB position no matter what happens with Tua. Regardless, Bridgewater isn’t likely to get more than a one or at the most, two-year deal after the season.

Clayton Fejedelem – Honestly, I keep waiting to hear that Fejedelem is released but he continues to provide very good special teams play. I would not be surprised to see the Dolphins give him another year after 2022. Here are the remaining four other players who could see one-year contracts.

  • Duke Riley – Quality depth at a low cost
  • Thomas Morstead – Another one-year deal with competition sounds about right.
  • John Jenkins – Provides depth along the defensive front
  • Brennan Scarlett – OLB depth is important and he has a veteran role.
