The legal tampering period is a day old, with a little more than 24 hours until free agency officially starts in the NFL. Currently, agents and teams can discuss potential contracts and work out the salary and years of a deal, though nothing can officially be signed and players and team cannot have direct communication or visits.

Dolphins rumors:

Dolphins one of 10 teams to express interest in Seahawks' guard J.R. Sweezy.

TRADE: Dolphins trade for Eagles' Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso

Dolphins adding salary cap space, restructure tight end Jordan Cameron's contract

Lamar Miller is expected to leave the Dolphins, according to a report. Miller is thought to be looking for a deal exceeding $5 million a season, while Miami did not want to surpass the $5 million mark.

Raiders have agreed to terms with Kelechi Osemele, paying the guard over $10 million a season.

Mario Williams signing with the Dolphins appears to be in the works. Could signal the end of Olivier Vernon with the Dolphins.

Dolphins may be pursuing defensive end Williams Hayes, even with Mario Williams deal coming together. Interesting to see if the interest disappears with Williams, or could Miami be looking to release Cameron Wake as well?

The Houston Texans appear to be the front runner for Lamar Miller. The Dallas Cowboys are in the hunt as well.

Dolphins are looking at veteran guards, including Alex Boone.
