Offensive Cap Crap

NFL free agency begins March 9. The Dolphins will be able to resign their own free agents after the Super Bowl.

In 2015, the Dolphins spent 38.78% of their cap on the offensive side of the ball.

8.31% was spent on four quarterbacks. Ryan Tannehill got 7.24%, Logan Thomas(0.41%), Zac Dysert(0.37%) and Tyler Murphy(0.28%).

With seven wide receivers, the Dolphins spent 6.94%. Greg Jennings gets the lion's share with 3.42%, followed by DeVante Parker with 1.54%. Jarvis Landry(0.59%), Kenny Stills(0.42%), Tony Lippett
(0.36%), Robert Herron(0.33%) and Damarr Aultman(0.28%).

On two centers, the Dolphins expended 6.64% of the cap. Mike Pouncey got 6.24% and Jamil Douglas got 0.41%.

The Dolphins' cap hit for two tight ends was 6.40%. To Jordan Cameron went 6.40% and to Dion Sims went 0.49%.

One left tackle, Brandon Albert, gets 6.31%.

Right tackle numbers two players knocking down 1.76%. Ja'Wuan James picked up 1.43% and Vinston Painter 0.33%.

Three guards cost the Dolphins 1.40%. Billy Turner(0.54%), Dallas Thomas(0.53%) and Anthony Steen(0.33%).

The Dolphins allot 1.02% to three running backs. Damien Williams(0.37%), Jay Ajayi(0.36%) and Jahwan Edwards(0.28%).

Pouncey is the fourth highest-paid center. For the guards, dead last in the NFL. Not far ahead are the running backs at third from the bottom. Even the highest-paid, Tannehill, is 21st.

Need to invest in guards that can consistently block

Correct me if I'm wrong... didn't the Dolphins have a guard problem before they got Suh?

Moore was our back up qb .Douglas is a guard.Lippet is a cb, not a wr on our team.

We definitely need a couple of guards but I really hope we don't draft any linemen with that #8 pick. I'd like to see us take a good CB and LB with the first two picks and maybe grab a good FA G and draft another G or T in round 3-5.

That's a plan I could live with!
