The Miami Dolphins will be able to clear $40 million in cap space in order to get under the projected $140-142 million cap for 2015. Either WR Mike Wallace or WR Brian Hartline will likely be named one of the two pre-June 1 cuts, the difference between cutting one or the other is $950,000. Hartline could also be asked to restructure his contract. LB Dannell Ellerbe's impending release will clear $8.45 million. Even if Wallace remains with the Dolphins for 2015, he'll likely be cut before the 2016 season when he's due $12.5 million in base salary and bonuses.

Fantasy Tip: Clay saw a dip in his status from 2013 to 2014 but was still third on the team with 84 targets. Clay likely would continue to be the starting tight end if he returns to the Dolphins and likely would be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a solid backup in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace hasn't produced as many big plays in Miami as he did in Pittsburgh, but he did score 10 touchdowns last year. If he is released, his fantasy value will hinge on where he ends up signing.

Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey had praise for QB Ryan Tannehill, saying the team is "excited" about his progress to date. "We are excited about [Tannehill's] future as a Dolphin. ... We saw a lot of progress [in 2014]," Hickey said.
Fantasy Tip: The team expects to pick up Tannehill's fifth-year option and may even discuss a longer-term deal. Tannehill is likely a safe bet to draft or keep for 2015 fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's future with the team is unclear. General manager Dennis Hickey would not say Wednesday, Jan. 21, whether Wallace will be back or if his end of season drama will play into the decision. Wallace said everything is being evaluated.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace had a rather disappointing season, and really hasn't been a fantasy stud since leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers. His fantasy outlook for 2015 is rather uncertain since we don't even know where he'll be at this point.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's status for next season is not known at this point, according to owner Stephen Ross. Ross said he is not sure if anyone in the organization knows if Wallace will remain with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace could be released this offseason because of his $12.1 million salary cap hit for 2015. Wallace reportedly pulled himself out of two games this season, so he may be wearing a different uniform next season. Wallace probably will be a starting receiver wherever he plays next season and could be a No. 3 wide receiver on fantasy teams.

Fantasy Tip: Clay has posted solid numbers in the last two seasons, but should not be a candidate for the franchise tag. Clay probably will be a starting tight end in 2015, but should be considered as a low-end No. 1 tight end or solid backup in most fantasy drafts.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has reportedly quit on the team multiple times this season. He told his position coach before halftime of the season finale, and later repeated it to his head coach, that if he wasn't getting the football thrown to him, there was no need for him to play. He allegedly did the same thing in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace seems unlikely to return to the team, and his fantasy value could take a hit after a pretty good season in PPR leagues.

Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson could be released this offseason, because the team would save $3.26 million in salary cap space. Gibson will not accept a pay cut this offseason, according to a source.

Miami Dolphins WR Brian Hartline could be asked to take a pay cut this offseason, but the team likely will not be able to trade him. Hartline is scheduled to count $7.35 million against the salary cap next season.
