Miami Dolphins Free Agency
The Miami Dolphins made a lot of great moves during this year’s free agency on both sides of the ball. Starting on the offensive side of the ball, the Dolphins brought in running back Chase Edmonds. Edmonds played for the Arizona Cardinals before signing with the Dolphins. They also signed Dallas Cowboys 4th string WR Cedrick Wilson, in order to help quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. They signed wide receivers Preston Williams and Trent Shertfield, and punter Thomas Morstead. Miami also signed Las Vegas Raiders fullback Alec Ingold to a two year contract, which was a perfect pickup because he fits into the Mike Mcdaniel offense. The Miami Dolphins then made two of the best pickups in the history of the team: they signed Pro Bowl offensive lineman Terron Armstead and traded for Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl WR Tyreek Hill.
Now on the defensive side of the ball, the Miami Dolphins started out by re-signing left end Emmanuel Ogbah to a long term contract extension that will keep him in Miami for the foreseeable future. The Phins also re-signed defensive end John Jenkings to a one year contract extension that will keep him in Miami for at least one more season. The team also signed defensive back Keon Crossen. Last, but not least, the Dolphins gave cornerback Xavien Howard a new contract which will pay him 25 million dollars a season and make him the highest paid corner in the NFL. The Dolphins also made some notable re-signings: they re-signed running back Salvon Ahmed, linebacker Sam Eguaveon, corner Nik Needham, defensive back Elijah Campbell, linebacker Duke Riley, safety Shedrick Redwine, tight end Durham Smythe. The Miami Dolphins have come out of this free agency period as one of the most improved teams in the NFL as they look to contend to win a SuperBowl once again.
