For the first time in ages, the AFC East is wide open with the departure of Tom Brady. The Dolphins are going to be rebuilding a bit longer but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in contention with Brian Flores leading the way.

The Dolphins came out firing when free agency began and shocked the NFL world with the signing of Byron Jones. There was interest between the team and the star corner but people shrugged it off thinking the Dolphins weren’t going to go into a bidding war. Well they did and they won. Flores also got his guy with the signing of Kyle Van Noy, who brings versatility to the Dolphins defense. The defensive line needed some help as there was very little pass rush last season. Shaq Lawson and Emmanuel Ogbah will look to provide that pass rush help.

It’s hard not to get excited over all the moves the Dolphins have made. It finally seems like they have a plan and are sticking to it.

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