Show me an NFL team with zero areas of concern heading into training camp, and I'll just tell you "nice Madden lineup," while asking if you turned off the salary cap and the AI's ability to reject trades.
That's what parity, brought about by a hard salary cap, shared television deals and revenue sharing, has brought to the NFL.
The best teams are the ones that have the fewest weaknesses, as well as the ability to conceal said weaknesses.
Last season neither could describe the Dolphins as a horrid offensive line and weak linebackers doomed them to the purgatory of 8-8. These weaknesses, along with Ryan Tannehill's inconsistencies, were most glaring during their final two games of the season against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, games where the Dolphins were outscored 39-7.
It's a brand-new year for the Dolphins, and despite efforts to address their weaknesses in free agency and the draft, said areas of concern are still there. Here's a look at the five biggest areas of concern for the Miami Dolphins going into training camp, ranked from least important to most important.
