Priming for the Dolphins offseason - The Splash Zone 1/17/24

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

It was a disappointing end to the Miami Dolphins 2023 season after expectations were set for a deep playoff run. But what’s done is done and now the team has an offseason to get ready for. The Dolphins want to keep their good players and some of those players, like Christian Wilkins, are set to hit free agency. But first, Chris Grier has to find a way to clear up some cap space. The team currently sits $41.5 million over the projected salary cap but can bring that number down by restructuring some contracts or by cutting players who have no guarantee money. It should be another interesting offseason from this team and it will be interesting to see who they bring in or release to make this team better.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
