but ultimately decided against it.
So what makes this season different? Misi is entering his 5th season and needs to make a big jump in order to not only help his cause this year but ultimately in the years that follow in order to ensure he remains a Dolphin. This year Misi counts just $2.3 million against the cap however that number almost doubles next season with a $4.4 million cap hit. Looking a year into the future is a bit premature considering he hasn't played a down yet this season, however it will definitely be something the Dolphins consider next season.
Misi if he plays well however will be worth that future cap hit. He has shown some promise over the last 4 years but this could be his most crucial year transitioning over to the inside. This I believe will be one of the biggest questions the Dolphins will face and something we should keep an eye on as preseason rolls around the next 4 weeks and then into the season. Besides the quarterback position and the offensive line, the linebacker position will be one of the biggest keys for the Dolphins next season. Hopefully it all goes well.
