The Miami Dolphins had a very eventful week when it came to matters concerning their contracts and their pay cap.
Andrew Van Ginkel was one of the Miami Dolphins defensive players who turned out to be a pleasant surprise in the previous season.
The Wisconsin native, who was then in his second season, had a bit of a breakout year in 2020, starting 11 of the team’s 16 games in Brian Flores’ takeaway-generating defense.
Van Ginkel had three forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks, and a 78-yard touchdown, all of which contributed to the turnover margin. Additionally, Van Ginkel scored a touchdown.
Because he was such a good match for Miami’s defensive systems, he ought to be designated as one of the starting linebackers once more for the 2021 season.
Myles Gaskin will have the lowest starting salary on the club, while Van Ginkel will have the second-lowest starting salary.
Because of his late selection in the draft, the Dolphins will only have to pay one of their starting outside linebackers $850,000 in 2021, and he will have another reasonably priced year on the books for the following season as well.
Van Ginkel should continue to produce enough performance to be considered one of the prized contracts, despite the fact that he will be challenged by the youngster Jaelan Phillips and his extraordinary ability to rush the passer.
