The Miami Dolphins brass went into the 2022 offseason with a perfect game plan.
- Take care of their own
- Improve the Offensive Line
- Give Tua weapons
Not only did Dolphins GM Chris Grier hit on all three facets, but Miami was graded with an A+ in offseason moves by NFL.com and PFT.
Miami was able to resign their best pass rusher in Emmanuel Ogbah to a multi-year deal and keep top pass catching tight end, Mike Gesicki for at least one more season.
They followed their moves by solidifying the left side of their line by signing Connor Williams from Dallas and Pro Bowl LT Terron Armstead.
Then followed the icing on the cake after the Dolphins decided to trade their first, second, and 3 day 2 draft picks for the one they call “Cheetah” aka Tyreek Hill.
Cowboys slot man Cedrick Wilson was also signed to improve the overall team speed on the roster and now their seems to be a new “Legion of Zoom” in South Beach.
Hard to not give Grier the credit he desperately needs after surrounding Tua with an NFL version of the Alabama offense.
Speed kills and if the blocking can hold, Tua might be in contention for his first Pro Bowl and possible playoff win for a hungry franchise that hasn’t experienced one since 2000.
But are they done?
The Dolphins worked out DE Melvin Ingram and former 1st round pick Reuben Foster but both left Miami’s training facility without deals.
Many expected the Dolphins to take a look at former Browns Center J.C Tretter, put the former pro bowler remains unsigned.
Tretter would be a great addition and upgrade to the position over Michael Dieter. He hasn’t missed a start in 4 years. However, after receiving possible trade offers for center Michael Dieter, the Dolphins might want to stick with the latter. Grier has done a remarkable job with the cap as the Dolphins have created 12 million in cap room even after their recent spending spree.
With the draft looming and a limited amount of picks, Miami could decide to keep building for next years draft which is said to be a stronger class. the Dolphins currently own 2 first,1 second, and two third round picks after the recent Devante Parker trade with New England.
They could decide to keep it cool but don’t be surprised if Grier pulls the rabbit out of the hat in this all-in approach for 2022.
