It looked like the Dolphins may have had a replacement for Gibril Wilson, who was released as free agency began, at free safety when Ryan Clark came in for a visit, but Clark opted to re-sign with the Steelers. Miami could still make a move for Sean Jones, who met with the Buccaneers on Thursday, but they may have to wait until the draft to fill the vacancy left by Wilson's departure. Observers told PFW the Dolphins are likely to spend a draft pick on a free safety who fits in their 3-4 scheme, and it could be an early pick if no veteran is signed before then. If they choose to fill other needs early and wait to select a safety, Chris Clemons and Tyrone Culver could share time at the position. The Dolphins were hoping to sign Clark and focus on addressing needs at wide receiver, outside linebacker and receiver in the draft, but that plan fell apart.
