    Where Dolphins spend their cap room

    As of Monday, here is where the Dolphins are allocating their resources:

    How the Dolphins spend their money

    Position Percent of cap
    Quarterback 6.8
    Running back 4.84
    Receivers 21.77
    Tight ends 2.58
    Offensive line 12.33
    Defensive line 18.23
    Linebacker 14.33
    Secondary 15.35
    Specialists 3.77
    *Courtesy of Roster Management System

    The Dolphins are currently spending 48.32 percent of their cap room on offense, 47.91 percent on defense and 3.77 percent on special teams. That is a very good balance, although some positions (receiver, defensive line) are clearly more expensive than others (tight ends, running backs).

    Where is the $16M which has not been spent. Very curious to see where that goes.

    I doubt it all gets spent this year, but rather most of it will likely be carried over to next year to help with re- or new signings.

    Unless... there are some surprise releases, notably OL, LB & DB that occur that could be nice 1 year gap fillers.

    Not sure what to think of what the team wants to do on the OL or LB, not sure they do either at this point. An average vet is not going to help all that much. Hoping for a surprise.

    IMO our team isnt Complete , we still have issues , i wouldnt care a bit to carry the money over , but thats like driving to a service station and running out of gas as you pulled in , with a $1,000.00 in your pocket , and wondering should i put gas in my car or start walking ? i know there isnt going to be no long term players to pick up BUT damn , we can look for 1 year stop gaps until we can find the right players we can get to sign long term , with 58 sacks last year it seems the coaches would wake up and explore the option /and pickup somebody to fill the poss of need/needs. it would be diffrent if we was over the cap but we have enough money to sign a player atleast till we find a permanent replacement, we still have time to find a decent player weather its in FA or when the cuts come .

    I think Hickey, Philbin, Lazor, and Benton have a dilemma here. Do you go with the young guys or, pay for a good vet or two IF they come available, and give up the development of the young guys. Not an easy choice.

    For me, Tannehill makes or breaks this franchise for years to come, and I would pay whatever possible to give him the best shot of success in his third season. Nothing else matters all that much. To hell with developing guys on the OL, just develop RT, and I do not meat right tackle.

    I would trade a 3rd rounder for a Mathis, and pay him, and pay for another VG vet if they come available. JMO

    It would be great to see a comparative analysis with all other teams. We are lucky to spend so little on QB and TE, but that is because we have our starters relatively cheap. However, big $ have been committed at linebacker and their form needs to improve dramatically to warrant the expenditure. This breakdown bears the brunt of some of Jeff Ireland's biggest commitments. It will take a couple of years for Dennis Hickey to put more of his imprint on the team. I am fairly comfortable with the even balance. This breakdown is probably in stark contrast to the Jimmy Johnson/Dave Wannstedt years when the bias was clearly on Defense.

    An interesting complementary piece to this would be where the Dolphins have spent their draft picks in the past say, 5-7 years, by position.

    There could be a big change coming next year, if they sign RT to a long term deal. I personally would love to see that as it would mean he finally stepped up to be a top QB.
