Following their fifth consecutive non-winning season, the Miami Dolphins (8-8) will have plenty of decisions to make to upgrade their roster in 2014. It starts with free agency, where Miami must decide which players to keep and which players to let hit the open market.
As a point of reference, here is a complete list of Miami’s 15 free agents and their 2013 salaries:
G Richie Incognito ($4.05 million)
OT Tyson Clabo ($3.5 million)
G John Jerry ($1.32 million)
*OT Will Yeatman ($560,000)
*G Danny Watkins ($555,000)
TE Dustin Keller ($4.25 million)
WR Marlon Moore ($296,471)
DT Randy Starks ($8.45 million)
DT Paul Soliai ($5.75 million)
LB Austin Spitler ($481,765)
CB Brent Grimes ($5.5 million)
*CB RJ Stanford ($635,600)
CB Nolan Carroll ($630,000)
*CB Justin Rogers ($97,941)
S Chris Clemons ($2.75 million)
*Restricted free agents
The Dolphins will have plenty of cap room with so many big salaries coming off their books. Miami has some tough in-house decisions to make with its own players. The biggest no-brainer of this group is Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes, who was the Dolphins’ best and most consistent defensive player in 2013. But he won’t come cheap.
