According to numbers released by the NFLPA, the Dolphins will rollover $8.36 million in cap space. This is some good news as the team is going to look to retain Kenny Stills and Andre Branch while also looking to extend players such as Jarvis Landry and Reshad Jones. The Dolphins are probably going to be looking at defensive free agents (maybe Lawrence Timmons). The team can also make more room by releasing some veteran players, most notably Mario Williams.
