10 Last-Minute Free Agents the Miami Dolphins Should Sign

Miami's preseason is now over, and at 0-4 the best we can say about the Dolphins is that they are a work in progress.

All seems well with the first-team defense, who got off to a rocky start in their first two games yet recovered well in the limited action they saw in the last two games—and this was without defensive mainstays at linebacker in Kevin Burnett and Karlos Dansby.

Special teams seem to be in good shape too, and could send two players to the Pro Bowl in kicker Dan Carpenter and punter Brandon Fields.

But the offense and secondary are trouble spots for Miami.

With rookie starter Ryan Tannehill, Miami has a development project, but one that must be seen until the very end. Their running back situation is one of the best in the NFL as well with the three-headed monster of Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller. Steve Slaton is another good piece in the backfield.

Miami is also solid at left tackle, left guard and center with Jake Long, Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey. Their right side is a project right now with John Jerry and Artis Hicks splitting time at right guard and rookie Jonathan Martin playing right tackle.

The receivers and tight ends? Well, that's a whole different story.

Miami had as many as 10 receivers on the roster at one point this preseason, and they will have to shorten it to five. Odds are though Miami will be looking for more help with wide receivers. Anthony Fasano and Charles Clay look ready as starting tight ends, but both have questions surrounding them.

Then back on defense you have Miami's secondary—one that only got weaker with the trade of Vontae Davis last week.

But while many Dolphins will lose their jobs this weekend, other players on other teams will become available, while some teams will look to make trades as well. Here's a look at 10 free agents and players who could be free agents that the Miami Dolphins should take a look at and consider picking up.
