The Dolphins have 12 unrestricted free agents, not including players who have been released in the offseason, such as wide receiver Dedric Ward.
Already, there is word the Dolphins are about to re-sign offensive lineman Mark Dixon, who is one of those 12.
The other 11 are DE David Bowens, WR Cris Carter, TE Desmond Clark, WR Oronde Gadsden, LB Scott Galyon, FB Rob Konrad, CB Paul Miranda, P Mark Royals, T Brent Smith, T Marcus Spriggs and TE Jed Weaver.
The Dolphins were expected to extend qualifying offers to Freeman, Gamble and Haley, but might let Green walk.
Among the unrestricted free agents, Carter is gone because he wants to be a starter and the Dolphins don't view him that way; Spriggs probably won't be back because he wants to be a starter; Miranda is not a priority; and the Dolphins realistically can only sign one of the two tight ends.
As far as what the Dolphins might go after, a left tackle is a strong possibility, as is a punt returner, a nickel cornerback and a wide receiver.
"Because of his youth and his ability level we would have pursued him," Wannstedt said. "But this year I don't see that happening, to be quite honest with you. There are a couple of guys out there, but at the position that they are, it just doesn't make as much sense to us."
