The Miami Dolphins left the 2013 season at 8-8 and with the knowledge that there is a lot of work left to do.
Unfortunately, if NFL.com's Mike Silver's report is correct, Jeff Ireland will be doing the work. On the plus side, it makes writing this article easier. On the minus side, Ireland will once again be in charge of improving this roster.
You can find my thoughts on this as well as a small rant I wrote about it on my Twitter timeline, but now is the time to look at what big free-agent moves the Dolphins can (and likely should) make this offseason.
The Dolphins will likely have around $28 million in cap room in 2014, according to a report from CBSMiami.com, and with some crafty contract adjustments for some players (like Mike Wallace) could get a little bit more, giving them money to re-sign key veterans such as Brent Grimes and Paul Soliai, while also bringing in some much-needed reinforcements.
We'll talk about the veterans on the team later this week, but today we will look at some big free agents Miami could bring in this offseason.
The emphasis this year will be on big, as this list will be ranked from least important possible free agent to most important possible free agent.
