NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The next few days are going to be swirling with NFL news and rumors.

But before the new league year officially begins on March 18th, teams have plenty of important decisions to make about the players already on the roster. One of those decisions is whether or not to tender restricted free agents.

For the Dolphins, this came down to four essential players: pass-rusher Vince Biegel, wide receiver Isaiah Ford, linebacker Trent Harris, and defensive tackle Zach Sieler. While nothing official has been announced regarding Biegel (yet), the Dolphins have tendered the other three players according to the Dolphins’ official website.

The Dolphins drafted ford in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL draft. During this time, he played musical chairs between Miami’s practice squad and the active roster. However, after several critical injuries to the Dolphins receiving core in 2019, Ford finally had the opportunity to make his mark. He finished the 2019 season with 23 receptions for 244 yards—21/23 receptions came in the final four games of the regular season.
