- The Miami Dolphins have taken a hit in terms of odds to win the Super Bowl.
- They did bring in Will Fuller, but have been otherwise mostly inactive.
- Much of their future will depend on how they deploy their draft assets, specifically the #3 pick.
LAS VEGAS - The Miami Dolphins have signed WR Will Fuller to a contract, but he’s their only major signing in the free agency period so far.
This stands in stark contrast to their division rivals up in New England, as the New England Patriots made a huge splash in free agency.
The Dolphins, meanwhile, have the third pick in the NFL Draft, and are looking for their draft position to buoy a team that won 10 games in 2020 – one of the few times a 10-win team did not make the playoffs.
With the Patriots theoretically back, the Dolphins’ odds to win the Super Bowl took a bit of a hit.
- Dolphins Odds To Win Super Bowl - Before FA: +3000
- Dolphins Odds To Win Super Bowl - After FA: +3300
The Dolphins now play in a division with a potential Super Bowl contender in the Buffalo Bills and a potential Super Bowl contender in the New England Patriots.
To add to their woes, the Dolphins lost Ryan Fitzpatrick, as the team potentially looks to double down on Tua Tagovailoa. However, when one looks at the odds for the third pick in the draft - the pick Miami holds - the future gets a little murkier.
2021 NFL Draft - 3rd Pick Overall
- Justin Fields +200
- Penei Sewell +250
- DeVonta Smith +300
- Ja'Marr Chase +275
- Rashawn Slater +500
- Zach Wilson +600
- Trey Lance +1000
The most likely pick at #3 appears to be Ohio State QB Justin Fields, who would only make sense if the Miami Dolphins were to move on from Tua, or trade the pick.
Behind Fields are potential weapons for Tua to use in DeVonta Smith and Ja’Marr Chase, and an elite offensive tackle in Penei Sewell.
So, what does this team actually look like in 2021? It could either look much the same as in 2020, with improvements from Tagovailoa and either on the offensive line or in terms of his weapons, or it could look very different, with Fields on the roster.
The Dolphins are a team with an undefined future, and the return of the New England Patriots to contention certainly casts a pall over that future.
