List of Dolphins entering the final year of their contracts in 2022

The 2022 NFL season brings hope to a Miami Dolphins fan base that certainly needs it after missing the playoffs for the fifth straight year in 2021.

All the moves the Dolphins have made this offseason, including hiring head coach Mike McDaniel to lead the organization, make it seem like this could be the year Miami break through and fight to be contenders for the Super Bowl instead of a team just on the outside of the playoff bubble.

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