Miami Dolphins: Early Winners and Losers Offseason

The 2012 Miami Dolphins offseason has been everything you've expected from the Miami Dolphins—if you expected an eventful offseason that feels like a roller coaster ride.

But then again, would you expect anything less from this team?

At the conclusion of the 2011 season, the Dolphins were expected to fix the one position that in 12 seasons they haven't gotten right—quarterback. However, every attempt at fixing said position seemed to fail (at least in the eyes of the fans that is). 

However very quietly, the Dolphins have managed to put together a solid—yet not as spectacular as expected—offseason.

Changes were made in terms of fan and media access, which with the reputation this team has had over the past decade for being arrogant and aloof with fans is just as important as the changes they expect to make on the field. While their quarterback chase didn't end the way many Dolphins fans would have liked, a priority had been placed on the position like it has never been before.

The Dolphins also took a risk at head coach by hiring a former offensive coordinator from one of the NFL's best organization—a coach who looks to instill the values of that organization into the Dolphins—a team that could use a face-lift.

All in all, this offseason might not have been as good as anyone would have liked it to be, yet it hasn't been as bad as fans seem to have thought. But there are some early winners and early losers.

Let's take a look at both of them.
