Dolphins Unrestricted Personal: Keep or Let Go?

March 9th is the date that unrestricted free agency hits the NFL. Let’s look at some of the Miami Dolphins personal who may leave or who might stay.

Safety Louis Delmas, I believe that the Miami Dolphins will let him leave to free agency.

Wide receiver Rishard Matthews, Miami will definitely re-sign Matthews.

Offensive lineman Jacques McClendon, he will leave for free agency.

Running back, Lamar Miller, with Miami looking for cap room, and rumors flying around about Matt Forte coming to the Dolphins. I see Miami Letting go of this feature back. In my opinion, that would be a huge mistake. Lamar Miller should be a Dolphins next year.

Quarterback Matt Moore. He has been a back up that has barely seen the field with the commitment to Ryan Tannehill being the number one in Miami. I think it is time to look at the draft for a replacement for him. He will be released to free agency.

Linebacker Spencer Paysinger, I think they will re-sign Paysinger in the off-season.

Defensive end Derrick Shelby, definite re-sign.

Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, he is a question mark. I could go either way on this, but I think the Dolphins will part ways with Sheppard.

Offensive Lineman Shelley Smith, he will be a definite free agent.

Defensive end Olivier Vernon, he will be re-signed to the Miami Dolphins.

Some names on the exclusive rights free agent list is safeties Shamiel Gary and Michael Thomas. Offensive lineman Ulrick John. Defensive tackle Robert Thomas.  The one wide receiver that I hope the Dolphins bring more into the spotlight is Matt Hazel.  In the pre-season he was phenomenal and would be a perfect slot receiver for the Dolphins in what will be a new high powered offense next season.

Let us hope that this off-season will be getting the missing pieces the Dolphins need to take them to the next step of being a great team, and that the upcoming free agency and draft is not a start over point of release everyone and rebuild but instead to bring in athletes to help move the Dolphins into the playoffs.
