Every year we have the NFL free agency period and then the NFL draft. After each event one thing is sure, NFL teams are about to cut some veterans. Sometimes the cuts are due to the fact that the free agent brought it was to improve the position or even to get a cheaper option that they believe gives them the same or similar production to someone that maybe makes too much money given his lack of production compared to his salary. Either way, someone is expendable at that point. These are not always the guys you want to go after unless you have a glaring hole and one of those guys is worth picking up. The more valuable players that are going to be cut often come after the draft. A guy might be a good to great starter but if you draft a rookie that is also considered a stud and a plug-and-play kind of player in a harsh sport with a hard salary cap it might just mean that a quality vet gets shown the door. Some will be now and some won’t occur until during camp when a team can really see what the rookies have.

So The Phinsider Question Of The Day is after seeing what the Miami Dolphins have added in free agency and via the draft which positions would you like to see this team scouring the waiver wire for in an attempt to grab a veteran player that either you believe has a few more good to great years left in them or can at the very least serve as a stop-gap at a position of need for a season or two? Also if you already have seen rumors of certain players that may now become available and might be a good fit for the 2021 version of the Dolphins please add that to your comments.

As this is a nightly post (when there is not a live game thread) also feel free to not only discuss the question/topic of the day but to use this as a live thread where the rules are pretty wide open, and you can discuss nearly anything so long as your continue to follow the site rules. Speaking of site rules the three rules that come with a zero-tolerance policy are that we do not allow ANY personal attacks against your fellow ‘Phins fan or even a troll from another site. Flag it and walk away, do not get yourself banned over another’s stupidity. Beyond that, there is no discussion or even references to anything remotely religious or political. There are plenty of sites for those discussions elsewhere but this is not and never will be one of them.
