The Miami Dolphins are one of the winners of the 2022 NFL offseason. Retaining EDGE Emmanuel Ogbah was a huge win in itself, but the team landed top offensive tackle Terron Armstead in free agency and pulled off a blockbuster trade for star wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

It turns out Miami may not be done adding big-name players.

Dolphins Free Agency Rumors

Josh Moser of WSVN 7 News in South Florida reported Sunday night he's heard the Dolphins have talked to both Carlos Dunlap and Akiem Hicks about a potential signing. The info came directly from powerhouse agent Drew Rosenhaus, who's representing these two big-name players still on the market.

Adding one, or even both, of these former Pro Bowlers would be a huge move for Miami's defense as they fill out the edges of this hopeful contender.

Dunlap is coming off of a bounce-back 2021 season where he racked up 8.5 sacks, 8 tackles for loss and 14 QB hits. The 33-year-old also recorded 7 passes defended, proving he has plenty left in the tank.

Hicks hasn't been quite as productive as Dunlap in recent years, but he's still a veteran and former Pro Bowl talent. The 32-year-old notched 3.5 sacks, 5 tackles for loss and 9 QB hits in nine games for the Chicago Bears last season.

Either player would give this top-ranked defense even more firepower heading into the 2022 campaign. Miami is currently +4000 (T-17) in FanDuel Sportsbook's Super Bowl LVII odds.
