The Miami Dolphins roster finished last season with a 7-9 record. This year’s Super Bowl lines reflect that. Miami finished under .500 for the second consecutive year since Adam Gase was hired in 2016. Despite their last two seasons getting derailed. For the reason that injuries to several key players. The Dolphins decided to hit the reset button and fired Gase after the season.
The Dolphins also decided against bringing back quarterback Ryan Tannehill. RT never lived up to expectations. Thanks to their offseason moves, Miami’s odds of winning the Super Bowl is +15000. Pretty steep understandably.
Even though expectations are low in South Beach this year, the Dolphins can actually surprise their fans. Also, finish with a better record than they had last season. However, a lot of things have to go their way.
The Miami Dolphins roster traded for former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen. JR was selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Even though Rosen looked very much like the rookie that he was last season, the fact that he lost his job after one season should serve as motivation for him going into this season. The fact that expectations are not high should also help with his play this year. Time will tell.
The team also brought in journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick can step up if Rosen doesn’t play well for Super Bowl lines.
Updated Miami Dolphins Roster
Running back Kenyan Drake should also get more touches this season after splitting carries with future Hall of Famer Frank Gore last year.
While the Dolphins made changes on the offensive end, they were not as active on defense. Eric Rowe being their most notable defensive free agent signing. However, they used the 13th pick in the draft on former Clemson defensive tackle. Whom they are hoping will turn into one of the premier run stoppers in the league.
Despite the prospect of facing a rebuilding year, first-year head coach Brian Flores expects the team to be competitive. But, with the other teams in the AFC East improving their roster this offseason, the Miami Dolphins roster will likely finish at the bottom of the division. This leaves little to no chance at 2020 Super Bowl lines.
