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

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%.

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.

Cap Crap

Free agency begins at the conclusion of the Super Bowl. Considering that's less than a week away, let's look at how the Dolphins have spent their cap. We'll focus first on defense.

The Dolphins spent 57.13% of their cap on defense.

Four defensive tackles take up a league high 20.96% of the cap. As you fans all know, Ndamukong Suh accounts for 17.79% of that. The other three are Earl Mitchell(2.18%), Jordan Phillips(0.62%) and DeAndre Coleman(0.37%).

At defensive end, the Dolphins spent 10.77% on four players. The bulk of that belongs to Cameron Wake(6.10%) and Dion Jordan(3.86%). The other two are Damontre Moore(0.44%) and Terence Fede(0.38%).

The five Cornerbacks costs the Dolphins 9.45% of the cap. Brent Grimes accounts for 5.91% of it. The others, Brice McCain(2.18%), Jamar Taylor(0.72%), Bobby McCain(0.36%) and Tyler Davis(0.28%).

The Dolphins spent  9.05% on their five outside linebackers. Quinton Coples leads the way with 4.82%, followed by Koa Misi at 3.03%. The others, Jelani Jenkins(0.49%), Chris McCain(0.37%) and Neville Hewitt(0.33%).

At strong safety, the Dolphins spent 5.38%. Reshad Jones has 5.10% of that and the rest goes to Dax Swanson(0.28%).

Three inside linebackers take up 1.08% of the cap with Terrell Manning, Zach Vigil and Mike Hull.

Walt Aikens is the only free safety and he counts 0.44% against the cap.

Suh, Wake, Jordan, Grimes, Coples and Jones are the most expensive players. These six account for 71.33% of the Dolphins defensive cap space. Suh and Jones are keepers, but questions abound about the Dolphins futures of the other four.
