The Miami Dolphins have moved on from a handful of players this offseason, and a few of them could end up thriving for their new teams.
The Brian Flores Era ended with a worrisome thud, as the Miami Dolphins were abruptly thrown for a loop following the former head coach’s lawsuit against the team and league. But the franchise made swift decisions, and there was quickly a new regime in place that has the team headed in a different and promising direction.
Things weren’t all bad in 2021. After one of the most disappointing stretches in recent memory that saw the team get off to a 1-7 start, they became the first franchise in NFL history to have both a 7 game losing streak and 7 game winning streaks in the same season. The Dolphins went from vying for the number one overall pick to controlling their own post season destiny going in to Week 17.
But the season ultimately ended in disappointment, and the team missed the playoffs in each of Flores’ three seasons at the helm, and he was fired.
While the front office did an immaculate job in bringing back essentially every defensive starter from 2021, as well as add some premiere players to the offensive side of the ball, there were a few notable departures. There was a revolving door at multiple offensive positions last year, and there were a lot of contributors to what was an ultimately anemic offense.
Many of those guys have found new homes for the 2022 season and beyond, and the Dolphins will even play against some of them this coming year. Which of those players found themselves in good situations where they can potentially benefit from a change of scenery?
Here are the 3 former Miami Dolphins players who could thrive on new teams:
