The Dolphins will have to add linebackers in free agency and the draft as we have to go from our traditional 4-3 defense (thanks Philben) to being able to switch to either depending on the opponent/situation. The thing I notice a lot this year is that the Patriots had a lot of cornerbacks on the field. We'll need more of them, too.

“It’s a little bit of a challenge because you are always looking for different pieces and parts, but a lot of teams bounce back and forth,” Grier said of a 4-3 and 3-4. “It will be a little bit of a project in terms of finding those pieces. There are some pieces here. [Flores] said he likes some of our pieces obviously going against us a couple years, especially some of the offensive pieces he liked a lot.”

Flores articulated the need to have versatile players on defense and mix up schemes/coverages/alignments this way: “Each game is different. Each opponent is different. Their strengths, their weaknesses are different every week, so every week we’re coming up with a different plan. A lot of that is tied to who you have personnel-wise, what we can do versus what they can do. It could be different every week. I think in this game, you have to be multiple. If you sit in one thing, the coaches are too good.

“They’ll find a weakness, they’ll take advantage of it. I think you have to be multiple and we’re going to try to do that.”

He told WQAM’s Joe Rose show on Tuesday: “I’m unable to say I’m 3-4 or 4-3. I’m not wired that way. You have to be scheme versatile. We want to be that.”
