Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, citing a league source, reports that the Dolphins are among the team’s Packers RB Aaron Jones will consider signing with this offseason.
Jackson has confirmed with a league source that the Dolphins have interest in Jones.
The Dolphins are projected to have around $26 million of cap space to work with this offseason, but Jackson notes they could create another $21.3 million by restructuring the contracts of Byron Jones, Kyle Van Noy and Ereck Flowers.
Beyond that, Jackson says the Dolphins could pick up another $15 million by cutting WR Albert Wilson, WR Allen Hurns, S Bobby McCain and S Clayton Fejedelem to bring Miami’s cap room to $62.3 million.
It’s worth mentioning that the Packers have the franchise tag available this offseason and it would cost them around $8 million for the 2021 season, which is a reasonable number for a player of Jones’ ability.
