Updating the Dolphins depth chart though the first 36 hours of free agency

We update the Miami Dolphins' depth chart, projecting how the free agency moves impact the team's roster.

Robert Duyos-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins have had a busy few days, starting during the league's "legal tampering period" and continuing into the start of free agency. The team has added players, and they have released players. They have tendered players and they have lost players to other teams. It has been chaotic and non-stop.

Which brings up the question: Where does the roster stand right now? With a potential offer pending to running back C.J. Anderson, we update the Dolphins' depth chart with what we know - or suspect - as of 1pm ET on Thursday.

Assuming Miami does sign Anderson to an offer sheet, he likely moves into the top spot on the running back depth chart, though he will likely split carries with Ajayi, keeping both players fresh throughout the season.

The Dolphins still have several needs that need to be addressed, starting with the guards and probably the cornerbacks. The team has some visits scheduled with players who could help with those weaknesses, and Miami had over $39.5 million in salary cap space as of the start of Thursday, according to the NFL Players Association.
