After safety Reshad Jones and center Daniel Kilgore are officially released at the start of the 2020 league year Wednesday, the Dolphins will have approximately $95 million in salary-cap space, with the ability to top $100 million.
But don’t expect Miami to go on a big-fish shopping sweepstakes. Even with the NFL‘s most cap space, the Dolphins are approaching free agency with selective aggression.
“Everyone thinks we’ve got all of this money to spend and blow. We’re going to be judicious and responsible with our salary cap,” Dolphins coach Brian Flores said. “It’s not, ‘We’ve got $100 million and we’re going to spend all of it.’ That’s just not how it works.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china
Top priorities for the Dolphins in 2019 were to clean up their salary cap and collect assets. They have done both, but they are planning to avoid reckless spending and falling back into a similar situation.
“We’re going to try to bring in a lot of players here — good players here — and keep building the roster,” general manager Chris Grier said. “We’ll be very smart in how we do it.”
