Chris Grier and the Miami Dolphins are in good shape for the future and next year’s free-agent class won’t hurt the team.
Every player listed in the slides above plays a role within the Dolphins roster. Some are far more important than others but as a team, Miami operates with starters and quality depth and there is a lot of quality depth that the Dolphins will need to make decisions on the next off-season.
Overall, Grier and Brandon Shore have done very well with their contract negotiations and roster building. Of all the players above, only four are clear starters, Gesicki, Wilkins, Morstead, and Van Ginkel. Of those four, only Wilkins and Gesicki are at the top of their positions on the team. Morstead has no competition.
If the Dolphins were to lose every one of those players, incredibly unlikely, they would easily be able to find replacements either in free agency or the draft, especially considering only two of them are legit top starting players.
That being said, the priority should be Wilkins and Gesicki and I would venture to guess that Wilkins is the top priority of the two.
Every other position on the field is in great shape heading out of 2022 and into 2023 making the 2023 free agency period and even the draft, one that Grier and the Dolphins can attack to fill any obvious needs after the season, which shouldn’t be many.
