Although the Miami Dolphins desperately need a free agency period in order to fill the many holes currently plaguing its offense, the lockout may a blessing in disguise.
After all, Miami has made more than its fair share of free agency gaffes over the years. Those gaffes have spawned some of the worst contracts not only in team history, but league history as well. The Dolphins' free agency woes have only diminished the team's ability to pursue replacements and retain their own players.
Maybe it's time to refrain from dishing out gargantuan contracts and start building through the draft.
