NFL free agency appears to be rapidly approaching, and once that happens you'll see hundreds of players, including a handful of former Miami Dolphins, changing teams and donning new uniforms for the 2011 season.
But where will those Dolphins with expiring contracts end up? Who (if anyone) will be retained and stay in Miami, and who will be starting a new chapter in their NFL career?
Excluding the Dolphins' two restricted free agents (Nate Garner and Joey Haynos) and three exclusive-rights free agents (Lex Hilliard, Lydon Murtha and Kory Sheets), who I all expect back with the Dolphins in 2011, I think we could be looking at quite a changeover when it comes to the Dolphins' free agents.
So who will end up where? It's impossible to say for sure, but I'll do my best to fearlessly predict where each of the Dolphins' unrestricted free agents ends up, as well as explain my rationale in placing a player where I did.
Obviously, this is going to be an extremely difficult exercise, and I'll be happy if I get even one of these predictions correct. Still, it's certainly fun to speculate, so let's get to it...
