Dolphins salary-cap restraints won’t keep them away from Odell Beckham Jr.

This was a bit of a reset offseason for the Miami Dolphins.

That’s not much of a secret, considering they were unable to retain a number of key free agents, including Christian Wilkins, Robert Hunt and Andrew Van Ginkel, who all left for better deals that Miami was willing to offer.

At the annual league meetings, head coach Mike McDaniel admitted the team has been working within the parameters set by the league’s salary cap.

“It all comes back to the fact that there’s a finite salary cap,” McDaniel said (transcribed by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel). “And sometimes, we can’t be the kid spending the money. We have to be the parents that have to look at our budget and make sure we can pay the water bill.”

Still, the parents sometimes want to get that dessert or that new toy. For Miami, that luxury right now is wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who the team had in for a visit last week.

“Things went great with him,” McDaniel said on Monday. “We did make him an offer, and business takes time, especially with players such as Odell, who’s had a phenomenal career, still has really good football in front of him and has options. So, I think those conversations will be ongoing. We’ll see where they go.”

Behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins lack experience at the position. At the moment, the rest of the room is filled by Braxton Berrios, River Cracraft, Erik Ezukanma, Braylon Sanders, Anthony Schwartz and Mathew Sexton.

Beckham, despite clearly not being the same player he was during his early years with the New York Giants partially due to age and injuries, could still bring a lot to Miami’s offense.

Last season, the three-time Pro Bowler recorded 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns. Cedrick Wilson Jr. held the third receiver role for the Dolphins last season and brought in just 22 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns.
