The 2019 season is the Miami Dolphins' 50th in the National Football League, their 54th overall and their first under head coach Brian Flores. They will attempt to improve on their 7–9 record from the 2018 season, finish with a winning record for the first time since 2016 and become the first team to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. For the first time since 2011, quarterback Ryan Tannehill will not be on the roster, as he was traded to the Tennessee Titans on March 15, 2019. The trade reunited Tannehill with long-time Dolphin Cameron Wake, who signed with Tennessee via free agency four days prior.

Early in the season, the Dolphins have received criticism for deliberately losing games in hopes of getting a better draft position.[1][2] As of Week 3, the Dolphins have traded key contributors including recent first round picks Laremy Tunsil[3] and Minkah Fitzpatrick.[4]

Offseason coaching changeEdit

The Dolphins fired head coach Adam Gase on December 31, 2018, after the team missed the playoffs for a second-straight season and finished 2018 with a 7–9 record.[5] The Dolphins conducted multiple interviews, but were linked to New England Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play caller Brian Flores but had to wait to hire him until after the Patriots were out of the NFL playoffs due to league rules. On February 4, 2019, the day after Super Bowl LIII, the team announced Flores as their thirteenth head coach.[6] The Dolphins announced the majority of Flores' coaching staff on February 8, 2019, including Chad O'Shea as offensive coordinator, Patrick Graham as defensive coordinator, Danny Crossman as special teams coordinator, and Jim Caldwell as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach.[7] On July 29, 2019, just four days into Dolphins camp, Flores sent a quick message by firing the OL Coach Pat Flaherty that he had hired in the spring and replacing him with team analyst Dave DeGuglielmo. Flores had deemed Flaherty to be ineffective in implementing the team’s new system.[8]
