MIAMI -- The Dolphins wasted little time spending their ample salary cap space Monday, agreeing to deals with defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, wide receiver Cedric Wilson, running back Chase Edmonds and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Ogbah reached agreement on a four-year, $65 million deal that includes $32 million fully guaranteed at signing. Edmonds agreed to a two-year, $12.6 million contract that includes $6.1 million guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Wilson agreed to a three-year, $22.8 million contract that includes $12.75 million guaranteed, source tell Schefter and ESPN's Todd Archer.
Bridgewater intends to sign a one-year contract with the Dolphins, a source told Schefter.
The spending spree began with Ogbah, who Miami agreed to terms with shortly before the start of the NFL's free-agent negotiating period, before general manager Chris Grier's focus turned to the other side of the ball. With Wilson and Edmonds, Miami adds a pair of starters who excel at creating after the catch -- a quality highly coveted by new head coach Mike McDaniel.
Among wide receivers last season, Wilson created the 17th-most average yards of separation per catch (3.49 yards) and the 14th-most average yards after the catch (5.8 yards). Meanwhile, Edmonds' 7.7 average yards after the catch ranked 21s-most among all skill players in 2021. Adding these players to an offense that featured prized rookie Jaylen Waddle gives quarterback Tua Tagovailoa numerous playmakers who can benefit from a quick-passing system.
Backing up Tagovailoa next season will be the seven-year veteran Bridgewater, who started 29 games over the past two seasons for the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. The Dolphins needed a high-quality backup quarterback considering Tagovailoa's injury history -- he missed the better part of six games to various injuries last season and one more as a rookie in 2020 -- and gave Bridgewater a one-year deal to return to south Florida, where he grew up.
Miami had roughly $50 million to work with entering the day and still must address an offensive line that ranked dead last in pass block win rate in 2021.
He won 14.4% of his pass rushes over the past two seasons, ranking 22nd among NFL defensive linemen. His 18 sacks rank fifth among defensive linemen since he signed with the Dolphins in 2020, and his 48 disruptive dropbacks in that span (sacks, interceptions, batted passes plus passes defended) are the most in the league.
Ogbah is highly effective at the line of scrimmage, batting down 30 passes since 2020; the next-closest defensive lineman in the league during that span has 21.
Edmonds set career highs in 2021 with 592 rushing yards and 116 carries, which was in addition to his 43 receptions for 311 receiving yards.
Edmonds, a Fordham University product, shared the backfield workload with James Conner and missed five games -- four on injured reserve with an ankle injury. He missed the season finale with a rib and toe injury, as well.
Edmonds, who turns 26 next month, improved in each of his four seasons, going from 208 rushing yards in 2018 to 303 in 2019 to 448 in 2020 to 592 in 2021.
He set out last offseason to improve his receiving and he reported to training camp as an improved receiver. He was on pace for a career best last season in receiving yards, but injuries kept him from surpassing his personal mark of 402 yards, which he set in 2020.
The 27-year-old Wilson, a sixth-round pick in 2018, made a slow ascent up the receiver ranks with the Dallas Cowboys to become one of Dak Prescott's trusted pass catchers. He caught a career-high 45 passes for 602 yards with six touchdowns last season.
He entered the 2021 season with 22 career receptions for 235 yards and two touchdowns but was pressed into the No. 3 slot when Michael Gallup suffered a calf strain in the season opener and a knee injury later in the season.
The Broncos traded for Bridgewater in March of 2021 -- sending a sixth-round pick to the Panthers -- and the veteran provided some of the stability they had hoped he could add to a struggling offense.
Bridgewater, who turned 29 last November, missed the season's final three games due to a concussion he suffered in a Week 15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Bridgewater finished with 3,052 yards passing in his 14 starts, the third-highest single-season total of his career and a career-best 18 touchdowns.
He also trimmed the Broncos' turnovers from their league-leading 32 giveaways in 2020 as Drew Lock tied for the league lead in interceptions and was last in the league in completion percentage.
He has thrown for 14,437 yards with 71 touchdowns and 43 interceptions in his career.
Ogbah, who turned 28 in November, was drafted out of Oklahoma State by the Browns in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft.
