Miami Dolphins targets RB Aaron Jones as reporte by Miami Herald.
«Green Bay Pro Bowl running back Aaron Jones has the Dolphins among teams he’s willing to consider. And the interest is mutual, according to a league source» told insider Barry Jackson for Sports Buzz.
The Dolphins have only $26 million in cap space if the cap ends up at $180 million. (The cap could rise to as high as $185 million.)
Miami could create another $21.3 million in cap space by restructuring the contracts of Byron Jones, Kyle Van Noy and Ereck Flowers.
They could save another $15 million in cap space by releasing receivers Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns and safeties Bobby McCain and Clayton Fejedelem.
So those moves would create $62.3 million in space — which would allow Miami to bid for for a high-end receiver and running back.
