Early look at Dolphins free agency
By James Walker
We continue our series on AFC East free agency with an early look at the Miami Dolphins.
Here is the full list compiled by Brian McIntyre's Mac's Football Blog:
Analysis: The Dolphins have some interesting decisions to make. There are five unrestricted free agents who started last season and several contributors. Miami could lose its entire right side of the offensive line with Carey and Columbo. Although Carey is the better player, both were Tony Sparano guys. Sparano was fired and took a job with the New York Jets as offensive coordinator. Soliai had another good year at nose tackle and is set to cash in after making it to the Pro Bowl. He played on the franchise tag last year and the Dolphins seem unwilling so far to offer a long-term contract. Henne was another Sparano favorite and will not return. Taylor, a future Hall of Famer, retired after this season.
