When free agency opens next week, expect several of the Patriots’ free agents to hear from the Dolphins.

Brian Flores had spent his entire coaching career in New England before becoming head coach of the Dolphins, and the Dolphins have prioritized bringing in players Flores knew from New England, including Kyle Van Noy, Eric Rowe, Ted Karras and Elandon Roberts. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins plan to reach out to several Patriots free agents this year, too.

Among the current Patriots whom the Dolphins may try to sign next week are defensive linemen Adam Butler, Dietrich Wise and Lawrence Guy, backup quarterback Brian Hoyer and center David Andrews.

Flores earned four Super Bowl rings during his time with the Patriots, and he hopes bringing in players from an organization that has had so much success can help propel the Dolphins to the Super Bowl.

  1. This is why the Dolphins can’t ever get over the hump. They need to stop trying to be the Patriots and just be the Dolphins.

  2. This is a non-story the Dolphins will look at any player that will help the team not just ex-patriots.

  3. The O-line help is there this offseason, pick up Andrews, and 1-2 other quality guys; pair that with a skill position heavy draft and this 10 win team could make some noise this season…

  4. The Dolphins signed Van Noy and Karras last year. Now they are no longer on the team. This should be a warning to Pats free agents looking at Miami. Brandon Bolden and Danny Amendola were short term guests of the Dolphins.

  5. Obviously they haven’t watched any Patriots games from the past few years. 🤮

  6. Patriot defensive free agents never have a difficult time landing a new contract. They have been well coached. Look at the money that has been paid out recently to Van Noy, Collins, Malcolm Butler, Trey Flowers, Logan Ryan. These guys were not first round picks.

  7. He is building something in Miami. It will be interesting to see where it leads to.

  8. The only ex-Patriot that can help a new team get to the Super Bowl is already playing in Tampa.

  9. We might be at the point where the Patriots need to start signing ex-Dolphins just to compete.

    Thanks for resigning Newton.

    The only problem is we can’t sign Tom Brady.

    Brady & Gisele reportedly bought some land late last year in Miami’s Indian Creek Island also known as ‘Billionaire Bunker’ where they plan to build a house. So don’t despair. Once Brady is done in Tampa Bay he may be open to playing a few more years with the Dolphins.

  11. Signing defensive guys from the Pats I can get. But the Pats offense was horrific across the board.

  12. The Patriots free agents might be a little wary after seeing Van Noy get that big contract from them & then get released after only a year.

  13. Lot of smoke. They just cut Van Noy due to cap hell so this is a way to drive price.

    Those players would be fools to go to that cap hell mess with Tua.
