Final games in a Miami Dolphins uniform for these 3 players?
3. Eric Rowe
I personally thought that Eric Rowe would be on his way out before the 2022 season started, but given all the injuries to Miami’s secondary, he ended up being an essential depth piece for the Dolphins.
Originally brought over from the Patriots by the Brian Flores regime, Rowe’s snap count had been slowly diminishing throughout last year, as the defensive scheme featured more of Brandon Jones playing from one of the safety spots. But Rowe survived through Flores’ departure and through training camp for Miami, and has been an important plug-in piece for the secondary. He went from playing in 10 percent and 21 percent of snaps in Weeks 6 and 7, to playing 90 percent and 95 percent of snaps in Weeks 12 and 13.
But his contract expires at the conclusion of the Dolphins’ 2022 season, and it is very unlikely that the team will elect to bring back the 30+ year old safety as they attempt to patch up their secondary. He has been one of the players on the roster that survived since Flores’ first season, but Eric Rowe’s time in Miami is probably coming to an end. He would be a part of what could be an overhaul of the secondary this coming off season.
