Grier is starting to come into his own through the draft and in free agency. Let's see where his offseason grade of an A takes us in 2022. Did he select the right head coach to lead us? Is Tua going to look like the QB that the Dolphins and Bengals looked to tank for in 2019? We hope so, because we fans are ready for the Dolphins to return to the success of the past.

Offseason grade: A. Considering the Dolphins were able to upgrade practically everywhere on offense and keep intact a pretty good defense, it’s difficult to pick at anything they did in the offseason. The acquisitions of Hill and Armstead were the headline grabbers, for sure, but Bridgewater is a significant upgrade over Brissett as the backup quarterback. The trio of Mostert, Edmonds and Michel is more dynamic than what the Dolphins had last year, and Wilson complements the addition of Hill. On defense, the Dolphins were able to retain a long list of pending free agents headed by Ogbah but also featuring Elandon Roberts, Duke Riley and Brennan Scarlett, among others. It’s hard to find fault with the overall body of work for a team that was one game out of the playoffs each of the past two seasons.

Biggest question: Can Tua Tagovailoa become a franchise quarterback? The fifth pick in the 2020 NFL Draft enters a crossroads season, but has been given all the support he needs to take a major step forward in 2022. It won’t be until the regular season that the Dolphins will get the answer to their most important question, but training camp certainly could help set the stage for Tagovailoa to have a successful third NFL season.

Fantasy fact: The Dolphins acquired Hill this offseason in a blockbuster deal. In his last three full seasons in Kansas City, he scored at least 296.5 fantasy points and was over 300 points twice. Since 2002, the Dolphins have had just one wideout (Jarvis Landry, 2015) score more than 265 fantasy points in a single season. That’s a pretty bad trend for Hill.

We always seem to win the off-season, but in Vegas the smart money is betting the Dolphins to finish under 9 wins. I think that makes a lot of sense with the schedule the team is facing and really, I do not think they did enough to address the O line issues. Any thoughts of starting Austin Jackson are beyond wishful thinking. He was lost out there last year and really, so lost it is hard to blame the coaches. We added a solid tackle, but his injury history makes it hard to get excited. I like the new coaching hire…I think Minnesota made the better choice, but at least McDaniel seems to love the job and that can be infectious. The team got better, but I think they are a solid draft away from being competitive. Maybe we do not need to draft a qb in 2023? I am not so sure of that, but I do think Tua will look better if the line is even mediocre this year. Will that mean the Phins are ready to take the division crown from Allen and the Bills? I do not expect the Dolphins to be a playoff team this year, but I think the league know the team will be a force in the near future.
