Several of the Miami Dolphins 2023 impending free agents won’t make it out of training camp and these names stand out among the others.

When we think of the players who will be impending FAs next season, we can discount guys like Cole Banwart, Sheldrick Redwine, and Porter Gustin. These are the types of players that could be gone in camp when the Dolphins begin reducing their roster sizes and if they do make it, the chances of returning next season could be limited.

There are, however, players that are a little more known who will be fighting for their roster positions this season.

Salvon Ahmed

Ahmed is another runner who could get caught up in the numbers game this year. Miami has a lot of talent on both sides of the ball but only 53 roster spots and some of the cuts are going to be tough. Ahmed is one of them.

Preston Williams

Williams is playing on a one-year deal. He has to stay healthy if he is going to have a shot at making the team. The Dolphins love what he brings to the table which is why he is still sticking around but at some point, this year, he needs to get on the field and stay on it.

Adam Shaheen

Miami is facing a tough decision at tight end where they will likely carry no more than four players and potentially only three. Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe, and Hunter Long have the inside track so that leaves Shaheen in spot four, if there is one.
