When the 2011 season began, it seemed like the Miami Dolphins were on the verge of an historically abysmal season. While the team managed to turn things around a bit, they still finished the year with a 6-10 record and a tie for last place in the AFC East.
There are plenty of things that the Dolphins will need to address in the offseason as they attempt to start a fresh chapter in 2012. First up is the issue of their impending free agents. Quarterback Chad Henne is one of their 11 players who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13, as well as nose tackle Paul Soliai, who played under a one-year franchise tag in 2011. Odds are that the Dolphins will not be willing to pony up again to re-apply the tag in 2012.
