The Miami Dolphins added Zach Sieler in 2019 after he was a 7th round draft pick of the Ravens. Miami claimed if off waivers from Baltimore.
Zach Sieler - Waiver claim 2019
Zach Sieler is the epitome of a Black Friday steal. Added to the roster in 2019, Sieler has made in an incredible impact. In his first full season with the Dolphins in 2020, Sieler started 8 of 16 games and contributed 48 tackles.
That number jumped to 62 in 2021 and 70 in 2022. Those numbers led the Dolphins to give him a new contract extension ahead of the 2023 season. So far, he has 34 tackles, six of them for losses, and 4 sacks.
Sieler was a steal on his previous contract but even the new money he received this year is considered a steal by any standard and money has not changed how he plays football. He approaches the game with the same energy and physicality week-to-week.
The most amazing thing about Sieler is he shouldn't be here. Sieler is a late draft pick who was barely hanging on in Baltimore until the Dolphins needed depth at the position. Now, he is a focal part of the defensive front.
Black Friday Value: $3.35 million
