Jeff Wilson, Jr. would be the Miami Dolphins lock to come back in 2023.

Wilson is a free agent to be and while he wont command a huge contract, it will be a good one for the running back. The Dolphins didn’t send a 5th round draft pick to the 49ers just to let Wilson walk after the season. Chris Grier would look like a fool to let Wilson hit the market and even potentially go back to San Francisco.

With the Dolphins not currently having any of their running backs under contract beyond this season, it seems that Wilson will be the top priority.

Raheem Mostert – Mostert is a question. Earlier in the season I would have said there was no way the Dolphins would let Mostert hit free agency but now, depending on the kind of contract he wants to sign, I’m not so sure. Ideally, Mostert would return and I would lean toward thinking he will but it will come down to where the Dolphins want to go in free agency and whether or not he fits into that idea.

Salvon Ahmed – There is a slim chance he comes back on a cheap deal. Slim. I would venture to guess that Ahmed will test the market first where he will probably have a better shot at a deal that pays him a little more but Ahmed is not going to be a running back that teams knock the door down for either.

Myles Gaskin – Gaskin hasn’t done anything this year, not his fault unless there is something in the background we don’t know about. I suspect that Miami will not entertain any extensions with him and I think he will do pretty well on the open market, honestly.
