The Miami Dolphins in 2022 have more optimism among the fan base than any other year in recent memory. A Miami Dolphins 2022 preview is not complete without looking at the new toys on offense. The Dolphins revamped their Running Backs, Wide Receiver, and Offensive Line rooms this off season. The defense has been good to very good over the last 2 seasons, and they kept all starters and the D.C. from 2021. Mike McDaniel comes over from San Francisco where he was OC with the 49ers. He brings an offensive mind to Miami that will feature the running game heavily. The Dolphins have hired offensive minded coaches in recent memory; Joe Philbin and Adam Gase. But this hire feels different. Philbin made his name with Aaron Rodgers and Gase with Peyton Manning. McDaniel made his name with Jimmy Garappolo.
Tyreek Hill Trade
In addition to McDaniel coming over from San Francisco, the Dolphins revamped their Running Backs, Wide Receivers, and Offensive Line. The biggest move for the Dolphins, and maybe the entire league, was the Tyreek Hill trade. Miami sent their 1st, 3nd, and 4th round picks in the 2022 and an additional 4th and 6th in next year’s draft to Kansas City. the Fins then inked Hill to a 4-year/$72.2 million contract with $52.535 million guaranteed. Great news for the Miami Dolphins 2022 preview.
Make or Break for Tua
This is the make or break season for Tua Tagovailoa in Miami. His first 2 seasons were tremulous to say the least. Former coach Brian Flores did not want Tua as his quarterback. He is finally healthy for a full offseason, and has the weapons around him to highlight his strengths. Pair that with an offensive minded coach and a system that is QB friendly, and Tua has not more excuses.
