Where Dolphins rank in positional spending among rest of NFL

·2 min read

The Miami Dolphins are preparing for the start of training camp later this month, and they’ve done a lot to be ready for this moment.

With all of the questions that surrounded the team after firing Brian Flores on “Black Monday,” the franchise has brought in a head coach and a number of talented players that have fans frothing at the mouth for the start of the season.

Despite all of these moves, Miami still has $16.52 million to either acquire new players, pay some of their own or carry over to 2023.

Now would be as good of a time as any to look at where the Dolphins are spending their money, and how it compares to the other 31 teams in the NFL.
