The Miami Dolphins got off to a good start to the offseason with the signing of cornerback Brent Grimes to a 4 year, $32 million deal. The structure of the contract also allows the Dolphins to cut ties with Grimes if his production diminishes after the second year, when he will be 33 years of age.
While locking up Grimes was an important first move, GM Dennis Hickey will be busy improving a roster that has several different holes at key positions. The offensive line is the most notable weakness and it is certainly possible that it will consist of four new starters in 2014, with the only returning starter being center Mike Pouncey. Considering that Chris Clemons, Paul Soliai and Randy Starks will be given the chance to test the market, Miami will likely need to find replacements at safety and defensive tackle, respectively. The Dolphins can also look to improve the run game by signing a power back, something they desperately lacked last season.no comments
