As the Miami Dolphins set up their ducks so to speak, two names jump out. New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker, and former Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson. Miami is already a front runner in the Mike Wallace sweepstakes, but general manager Jeff Ireland has $46 million in cap space to play with and landing a few proven veterans would help bolster the team. Welker, a former Dolphin who was traded to New England in 2007, would give young Ryan Tannehill a reliable target across the middle, and would team nicely with the team's current slot receiver, Davone Bess. Woodson, would provide the veteran leadership the defense lacks in the defensive secondary. According to Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are considering making a run at the two free agents. Salguero writes: 'Welker doesn’t fit the Dolphins’ structure if you’re going by the club’s old logic. He’s going to be 32 in two months. He’s going to cost a lot of money and would play a position where the Dolphins are already seemingly set with Davone Bess. But, the source said, if Welker cannot return to New England with a good contract, he’d love nothing more than to stick it to the Patriots for not retaining him. And the Dolphins might welcome the chance to help Welker with that goal. Woodson will be 37 in October. He was sidelined much of last season with a broken collarbone. Regardless of how much he still might contribute to his next team, it’s doubtful he’ll be as good as he was for his last two teams. And yet the Dolphins are among the interested teams.'     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
