The Dream Dolphins safety target appears to be indicating he is interested in a move to Miami

The Miami Dolphins safety position is one of the weaker spots on the team’s roster, and so far Chris Grier hasn’t done much to improve it. When the team lost DeShon Elliot, who played well last season, they added Jordan Poyer on a one-year deal. Poyer is no longer the top safety he once was, and the Dolphins are hoping to milk another year out of him.

Then there’s Jevon Holland, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. So far, nothing is known about his future with the team. The expectation is that the Netherlands will want to win a monster contract. It can be a lot of money to throw at someone who hasn’t made a Pro Bowl yet despite having the talent and tools to be among the elite.

So, could help be on the way before week 1 arrives? Dolphins fans have their eyes on Justin Simmons, who somehow remains unsigned. Well, from his latest social media activity, it looks like he’s open to a move to Florida.

We can’t tell too much from a ‘side-looking’ emoji on X, but his response is at least intriguing and has fans talking. Earlier this month, Tyreek Hill took to social media to have some fun and troll some Dolphins fans who thought he should be cut or traded. Players aren’t much different from the rest of us, so it’s not too surprising to see Simmons react to the potential move.

Simmons was named to the Pro Bowl in 2023 and also took home Second-Team All-Pro honors. He was released by the Broncos due to cap issues and has yet to find a new team. Simmons would be a great addition to the Dolphins, who coincidentally received $18 million in cap relief on June 1. Could Miami use some of that for Simmons? It’s possible, but I don’t dare hope for it yet.

One of the big decisions Grier faces is the contract situation with the Netherlands. Adding a top safety to the secondary won’t go over well with the three-year veteran heading into a contract year. Until Simmons is signed, there will be a lot of talk about him joining the Dolphins, and he may even be interested in them. This will be something to keep an eye on.
