Dolphins Free Agency Moves

The Miami Dolphins lost their top free agent Christian Wilkins to the Raiders. One of the best defensive tackles in the game was lost for nothing and Miami wasn't able to replace him despite making plenty of additions.

These additions include Neville Gallimore from the Cowboys and Benito Jones from the Detroit Lions, two players without much starting experience. They will rely on their player development ability as an organization but losing a Pro Bowl-caliber defensive lineman like Wilkins who was coming off a nine-sack season without being able to replace him with a starter is certainly a mistake.

That wasn't the only questionable signing. The Dolphins also penned center Aaron Brewer to a three-year, $21 million deal. If protecting Tua Tagovailoa was a priority this offseason, adding the former Titans offensive lineman who gave up seven sacks last season was the best use of resources.

On the offensive line, they also re-signed former Patriots Isaiah Wynn, despite the fact that the 28-year-old has only played in 16 games over the last two seasons. Wynn's versatility and ability to play both guard and tackle, while providing good speed and athleticism have intrigued plenty of teams in the past, including the Patriots, he hasn't been able to stay healthy for long enough stretches to deserve another contract while there were other options on the market.

Despite all of this, the Patriots are still the significant underdogs with +1700 to win the AFC East. The Bills lead the way with +130 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook but plenty of things can change at the draft to shift these odds ahead of the new season.
