But even the top free agents come with some risk attached.
There is no such thing as a perfect player, so it will be up to the Dolphins to weigh the pros and cons before deciding whether or not to make a contract offer.
Branden Albert will surely be one of their top free-agent targets. As one of the best players on the market at the team's biggest position of need, he seems like a no-brainer acquisition.
However, he has also been bitten by the injury bug on more than one occasion and is relatively injury-prone.
New general manager Dennis Hickey will have to make the decision on whether Albert's positives outweigh the negatives.
He is just one example; there are pros and cons to signing each and every player on the market.
Let's take a look at some of the players the Dolphins are going to target once free agency gets under way, and we'll decide whether they are the right fit for Miami.
