The Miami Dolphins off-season has been a topic for us throughout the day and now we turn toward three Dolphins in particular.

From tight end additions to offensive line and backup quarterback, the Dolphins have their share of needs and they have to find money to spend in free agency to get better if they hope to compete in 2023.

The Dolphins will have the 2nd toughest strength of schedule next year and they will need to get better before the season begins.

New defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will have his work cut out for him as well, especially in the secondary and linebacker units where he has to transition the team from a blitz-happy defense to a defense that relies on solid coverage in the secondary and good vision to stop the run, upfront.

Naturally, changes will happen. Miami has 26 impending free agents they will need to address this off-season but there are players on the roster as well that may not be back. That in reality, may not deserve a shot on the 2023 roster.

Salary cap issues aside, the Dolphins will need to figure out if these three Dolphins are worth the money they have tied up with them and then whether or not they can replace them for cheaper on the market, or in the case of one of them, another coach. Miami will likely eat some salary this year because they handed out contracts that simply were not team friendly.
