PFT: Dolphins sign 7 of top 100 free agents

Christian Petersen

According to Pro Football Talk's "Free Agent Hot 100," the Miami Dolphins cleaned up in free agency this year. The South Florida franchise claimed seven of the top 100, more than any other team in the league.

It is June. It is the one month of the calendar year that does not really have anything football in it. Sure, teams will host their final OTA and a mandatory minicamp sometime this month, but that is really it. There is no big event like the Draft or Free Agency to spike interest in the NFL in June, other than maybe some veterans being released now that the June 1st magical date has been reached. Other than that, it is the calm before the storm.

As we reach the lull that is June, there is time to go back and look at all the craziness of free agency and the Draft. Pro Football Talk did exactly that last night, comparing their "Free Agent Hot 100" list with the list of fee agency signings from around the league. Any guess who came away with the highest number of top 100 free agents?

Of course, it was the Miami Dolphins.

Including re-signings, the Dolphins landed seven players off the list. Second place went to the Denver Broncos with six, all of whom were signed from other teams, giving them the highest number of the top 100 players without re-signings counted.

Three teams, the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, and Detroit Lions, each signed/re-signed five of the top 100.

The Dolphins group of seven are:

Some of the top names still remaining on the Free Agent Hot 100 list are New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (4th overall), who has not signed his restricted free agent tender, Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour (42nd), and Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham (43rd).
