The 2022 NFL season is bringing hope to a Miami Dolphins fanbase that certainly needs it after missing the postseason for the fifth straight year in 2021.

All of the moves that the Dolphins have made this offseason, including hiring head coach Mike McDaniel to lead the organization, have some believing that this could be the year that Miami breaks through and fights to be Super Bowl contenders instead of a team just on the outside of the playoff bubble.

However, for some, this could be their final season playing at Hard Rock Stadium, and that’s bittersweet. These are the players that are set to become free agents next offseason (cap numbers via Over the Cap).
