They just hope those people include impact free agents.The Dolphins will head into the March 12 start of free agency armed with about 40 million of salary-cap room.

It’s no secret that the Miami Dolphins are looking for a true number one receiver, and Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace fits the bill.
Second year quarterback Ryan Tannehill needs weapons, and the Dolphins have a bunch of number two or three receivers, but no number one option.

The clock is ticking on the Miami Dolphins relationship with their former #1 overall pick, Jake Long. The Dolphins must decide before March 4th if they want to use their franchise tag on Long, resign him, or let him enter free agency on March 12th. First, I don’t see anyway that the Dolphins use the franchise tag on Long, as it would pay him over $15 million in 2013. So cross...

The main objective for the Miami Dolphins this offseason is to find a new No. 1 receiver to line up opposite Brian Hartline either through the 2013 NFL Draft or 2013 NFL Free Agency.
Albeit this year’s draft class is loaded with depth and talent at wide receiver, the Dolphins—which have $44 million in cap space (currently third most in the NFL)—are expected to strongly pursue...
For weeks now we’ve been talking about Greg Jennings and the Miami Dolphins in the same sentence. Is it possible that could be incorrect, and the Dolphins have eyes for somebody else.
