Despite finishing the 2020 NFL season with a 10-6-0 record, the Miami Dolphins failed to make the playoffs for the 11th time in 12 years.
Still, their play throughout the season, especially with the improvements they showed on defense, has left Dolphins fans looking forward to next season. While the team has already improved by bringing in the likes of Will Fuller and Benardrick McKinney, there's still some work to be done.
They can still makes moves with estimated $9.6 million in cap space they have, according to Spotrac. Here's a look at three low-cost free agents that Miami should sign.
1. Ronald Blair, DE
After Kyle Van Noy and Shaq Lawson left the Dolphins in their own way this offseason, it became apparent that the team needed some edge rushing help. Enter Ronald Blair. After tearing his ACL in 2019, Blair sat on the sidelines for the entirety of the 2020 NFL season. However, in his first four seasons, he showed that he can be a valuable edge rusher. In his last two seasons, Blair registered 8.5 sacks, 57 tackles and 17 quarterback hits. He offers a low-cost, high-reward option for the Dolphins.
2. Danny Amendola, WR
While the Dolphins did bring in Will Fuller to help out with the receiving situation, he's also missed 27 out of a possible 80 games to start his NFL career. Danny Amendola is a reliable veteran who could help the Dolphins should Fuller miss time. He can also open up space for Fuller and DeVante Parker. Amendola played for Miami back in 2018, amassing 575 yards and a touchdown. He's never been a game-changing player, but he can be offensive insurance when the Dolphins need him.
3. Wayne Gallman, RB
On paper, it may seem silly for the Dolphins to add another running back. They already have Myles Gaskin, Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed on their depth chart, after all. But Gaskin has had injury issues, Brown has rarely played like a starting back and Ahmed is largely unproven. Meanwhile, Wayne Gallman has experience stepping up to the plate when Saquon Barkley was injured for the New York Giants. In 2020, Gallman recorded 796 total yards and 6 touchdowns in 15 games. The Dolphins should sign him to not only add depth, but to give them an actual option if Gaskin or Brown fail to produce.
