It took the Miami Dolphins an offseason to build a team that hopefully can end their playoff drought.
They came close to doing it during Brian Flores’ tenure with records of 10-6 and 9-8.
However, Miami still hasn’t reached the playoffs, extending its drought to five seasons.
Worse still, they haven’t won a playoff game since 2000 despite entering the playoffs in 2001, 2008 and 2016.
This time around, they’re hoping key additions like Cedrick Wilson, Chase Edmonds and Tyreek Hill will help the team weather the playoff hump.
Teaming up with Mike Gesicki and Jaylen Waddle gives the Dolphins a formidable offensive unit.
But as they have acquired talent, they are also relegating others, as NFL Network national insider Ian Rapoport shared.
The #Dolphins placed TE Adam Shaheen on season-ending injury reserve, ending a days-long saga that included them trying to trade him only to have him fail physically.

A brief overview of Shaheen’s career
The post says it all as Shaheen hopes to revive her career.
Unfortunately, the Ohio native didn’t do much for the Dolphins and Chicago Bears.
Shaheen was selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft and lasted three seasons with the Bears.
After which, he was traded to the Dolphins in the 2020 offseason in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.
This month, the Dolphins attempted to trade him and their 2023 seventh-round pick to the Houston Texans for the team’s 2023 sixth-round pick.
Unfortunately, the exchange was canceled because it failed the physical.
The former Ashland standout has started 25 of 55 total games played and has 50 receptions for 509 yards and seven touchdowns.
