The Miami Dolphins did not hold back during free agency.
They wanted to compete immediately by bringing in wide receivers Cedrick Wilson and Tyreek Hill.
Miami also bolstered their backfield with Raheem Mostert and Chase Edmonds.
The Dolphins also signed offensive linemen Connor Williams and Terron Armstead.
These additions should give quarterback Tua Tagovailoa no excuse to not perform well this season.
He already has the targets around him, especially Hill who is one of the league’s fastest players.
Tagovailoa should also hit deep passes with Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
Aside from bringing in reinforcements, the Dolphins also hired Mike McDaniel as head coach.
The former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator will try to make the most of his talented unit.
It helps that he and Tagovailoa are on the same page.
As NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe shared, the coach and the quarterback are getting along.
Did we just become best friends? — Tua Tagovailoa and Mike McDaniel this offseason, probably LOL
Dolphins QB1 and HC getting @f1miami vibes at track today.

Wolfe tweeted, “Did we just become best friends? — Tua Tagovailoa and Mike McDaniel this offseason, probably LOL Dolphins QB1 and HC getting @f1miami vibes at track today.”
Tagovailoa and McDaniel went to one of the events leading to the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix.
Race day will be on May 8 but preparations are under way for the huge sporting event.
In the video that Wolfe shared, Tagovailoa said, “What’s up guys, we’re here at F1. About to get in the car. About to go real fast” while embracing McDaniel on his shoulder.
McDaniel Can Still Relate To His Wards
The history major from Yale is one of the latest additions to an on-going NFL revolution of hiring younger head coaches.
Sean McVay started the trend and McDaniel is continuing the trend.
At 39 years old, he can still understand his players beyond the game.
Therefore, it would be easier for McDaniel to communicate to his players, especially Tagovailoa.
Dolphins fans hope that this setup will lead to a postseason berth, something the team hasn’t experienced since 2016.
