Let's not forget that LT Laremy Tunsil should be signed soon to an extension. The Dolphins are planning to draft well, and sign their very good free agents to long term contracts before they become free agents. Since we are lacking in offensive linemen, I can see us signing one in free agency next year.

The Dolphins are down to $23.4 million in cap space after Xavien Howard’s extension, several veteran pickups and the signing of the draft class except guard Michael Deiter.
It’s realistic to believe that Miami should be able to carry over at least $15 million of that space into next offseason, giving the Dolphins more than $110 million in space potentially.
A couple million of that $23 million will be needed to sign a practice squad and the Dolphins could use some of that money if they decide to sign any veterans at need positions.
But keep in the mind that this regime isn’t inclined to go on an extravagant spending spree for outside free agents, moving forward, even when it does have a ton of space.
Will the Dolphins pay market value for select outside free agents? Yes. Will they dole out Ndamukong Suh contracts to players they didn’t draft? Unlikely.
But the Dolphins should have more than enough room to fill any needs that emerge after the 2020 draft.
