We've officially reached free agency day. As we get ready for the madness that is this afternoon, we take a look at the status of the Miami Dolphins' roster, as well as the needs and potential solutions for each area of the roster. We've already looked at the defense, quarterbacks, tight ends, and running backs, now we move on to the wide receivers.
|10||Gibson, Brandon||WR||6'0"||205||26||5||Washington State|
|82||Hartline, Brian||WR||6'2"||199||27||5||Ohio State|
Potential Free Agents:
|14||Moore, Marlon||WR||6'0"||190||26||3||Fresno State|
Wide receiver is another area of the Dolphins roster that could look a lot like last year's group when the 2014 regular season rolls around. Obviously, the top two, Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace, will remain the top two. Behind them, Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews, and Armon Binns will fill the third through fifth spot on the depth chart, while Ryan Spadola will fight for a roster spot or return to the practice squad. Re-signing Marlon Moore could also be on the table, given his special teams abilities.
Top 5 Free Agents:
|1||Eric Decker||Denver Broncos|
|2||Hakeem Nicks||New York Giants|
|3||Santonio Holmes||New York Jets|
|4||Julian Edelman||New England Patriots|
|5||Golden Tate||Seattle Seahawks|
Top 5 Draft Prospects:
|2||Mike Evans||Texas A&M|
|5||Odell Beckham, Jr./td>||LSU|
Nogle's Offseason Projection:
The wide receivers on the roster now will probably be the same wide receivers on the roster when the season starts. Gibson's injury last year allowed Matthews to show his potential, and should keep him fully entrenched as a depth option. Adding a wide receiver late in the Draft or as an undrafted free agent is an option.
