NHL teams with big roster decisions to make this summer have finally gotten word of what their financial limitations will be.
The Miami Dolphins have been busy in the first few days of free agency signing left tackle Branden Albert, defensive tackle Earl Mitchell, and safety Louis Delmas. The Fins have also re-signed cornerback Brent Grimes and done it all while keeping lots of salary cap space.
The New York Knicks are reportedly closing in on a deal to bring legendary coach Phil Jackson to the team in the front office. The Knicks have a lot of work to do, not many resources to do it, but owner James Dolan has one target in mind with the hiring of Jackson, Miami Heat president Pat Riley.
The Miami Dolphins were set to enter unrestricted free agency Tuesday with around $35 million in cap space available. Instead, with one move they will begin with $40 million to spend.
The Miami Dolphins’ needs along the offensive line is well known, but the team may be preparing to make a big addition to the team’s secondary.
The Miami Dolphins are looking to make a splash at left tackle in free agency to allow them to use the draft and other money to fill in the rest of the offensive line. The Fins have been linked to Branden Albert already and now comes word the Fins also “very much like” Eugene Monroe, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
The Miami Dolphins are ripe with cap space heading into free agency, but will have several key defensive contributors to address if the team wants to remain a contender for the NFL playoffs
The Miami Dolphins were having a kicking competition in the first few weeks of training camp, but apparently that competition is over with the less expensive player winning.
As recently as a few weeks ago, Miami Heat president Pat Riley said he wasn’t planning on amnestying any player on the roster. Apparently, plans changed as the Heat announced Tuesday that they have waived Miller using the one-time amnesty provision in the collective bargaining agreement.
Despite spending more than $200 million in contracts during the 2013 offseason, the Miami Dolphins appear to be in decent salary cap space heading into training camp and the 2014 season.
