The Miami Dolphins are in the process of evaluating the talent they have on their current roster.  They are trying to map out a plan for this critical offseason that presents them with $40-$50 mil in cap room and 5 draft picks in the first 3 rounds of the draft.  The Dolphins have a lot of big decisions to make this offseason.  The big decisions that will come first will be to determine which of the Dolphins own free agents should be brought back for the 2013 season and beyond. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Let’s start by looking at each of the key Dolphins players that will be free agents in early March.  The salaries listed below are courtesy of SportsCity.com and can be found here. Reggie Bush – $4.5 mil in 2012 Whey he’ll be back:  The Dolphins have 2 relatively unknown commodities behind him in Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller.  Personally, I’d like to see a lot more of Lamar Miller and less of Daniel Thomas. Why he won’t be back: Reggie will probably be looking for a raise, but is it really deserved?  The Dolphins have invested 2 draft picks in running backs in the last 2 drafts, probably to set up for Bush leaving the team. What will happen:  I think the Dolphins will try to sign Reggie to a team friendly deal, worth roughly the same as he made in 2012, but I’m not sure he’ll take it.  If I had to guess, I’d say Reggie will be elsewhere in 2013.  (cont’d on page 2, click below)
