As evidenced by their 5-7 record, the Miami Dolphins are a team with a lot of holes. But, luckily for them, along with the five picks that they will have in the first three rounds of next April's draft, they will also have plenty of cap room to fill out the rest of the roster as well.
However, the Dolphins are also a team with a lot of promise going into 2013 based off of how well they have played this season, even during their losses. They only really got blown out in two games—one of those being the inexcusable home loss to the Tennessee Titans—and they managed to put a scare into the New England Patriots in Week 13.
To go along with that promise, the Dolphins have plenty of cap room to spare next season, with some estimates putting Miami at $50 million under the cap. Some of that money will likely be used to retain some of their own key free agents (who we will also highlight in this slideshow), but for the most part, the Dolphins will go into the 2013 offseason with an open wallet and checkbook.
The list of desirable free agents for Miami to look into is a long one, but these are the 13 names that Miami should take a look at and kick the tires on next offseason.
Why 13? Because it's the 2013 offseason...as well as Dan Marino's number.
