Free agency begins at the conclusion of the Super Bowl. Considering that's less than a week away, let's look at how the Dolphins have spent their cap. We'll focus first on defense.
The Dolphins spent 57.13% of their cap on defense.
Four defensive tackles
take up a league high 20.96% of the cap. As you fans all know,
Ndamukong Suh accounts for 17.79% of that. The other three are Earl
Mitchell(2.18%), Jordan Phillips(0.62%) and DeAndre Coleman(0.37%).
At defensive end,
the Dolphins spent 10.77% on four players. The bulk of that belongs to
Cameron Wake(6.10%) and Dion Jordan(3.86%). The other two are Damontre
Moore(0.44%) and Terence Fede(0.38%).
The five Cornerbacks
costs the Dolphins 9.45% of the cap. Brent Grimes accounts for 5.91% of
it. The others, Brice McCain(2.18%), Jamar Taylor(0.72%), Bobby
McCain(0.36%) and Tyler Davis(0.28%).
The Dolphins spent 9.05% on their five outside linebackers.
Quinton Coples leads the way with 4.82%, followed by Koa Misi at 3.03%.
The others, Jelani Jenkins(0.49%), Chris McCain(0.37%) and Neville
At strong safety, the Dolphins spent 5.38%. Reshad Jones has 5.10% of that and the rest goes to Dax Swanson(0.28%).
Three inside linebackers take up 1.08% of the cap with Terrell Manning, Zach Vigil and Mike Hull.
Walt Aikens is the only free safety and he counts 0.44% against the cap.
Wake, Jordan, Grimes, Coples and Jones are the most expensive players.
These six account for 71.33% of the Dolphins defensive cap space. Suh
and Jones are keepers, but questions abound about the Dolphins futures
of the other four.
