2. Miami Dolphins
I think it’s safe to say that the entire NFL world was shocked when the Dolphins chose to fire Brian Flores. We have no idea what their plans are for the coaching staff, but we do know that they currently are the No. 1 team in the NFL in terms of money to spend and cap space. This means they can make big moves to help their future team.
Miami got incredibly lucky with rookie Jaylen Waddle. Waddle broke the rookie record for receptions in a season and ended the year with 104 receptions for 1,015 yards. This kid has big-time potential and already has a season with QB Tua Tagovailoa under his belt. But a team needs a WR corps, not one wide receiver.
The Dolphins got royally screwed over with WR Will Fuller. They paid him $10 million for a one-year contract. His final stat line for the season was four catches for 26 yards. He only played in two games. It would do Miami well to make a much better signing this offseason.
Since Waddle is still on his rookie contract, the Dolphins don’t have to worry about big spending to keep the rookie around. If Miami can’t get a big name like Adams or Godwin, Gallup is a great option. There are tons of other wide receivers in free agency who aren’t as good of a value as the Cowboy and come with an even worse injury history.
Gallup could be a piece of a big turnaround year for the Dolphins next season — and you know they love to spend on talent rather than develop it, typically.
