As noted salary cap guru Wiz Khalifa once sang, the Miami Dolphins have some Spending Money.

When this song come on, I’m spending money

When you living this high, you can’t be afraid of heights

According to information released by the NFLPA on Wednesday, the Dolphins will rollover $8.36 million in salary cap space into 2017, more than New England, Buffalo and (of course) the Jets.

The Cleveland Browns will rollover $50.12 million, which is absurd.

The Jaguars, 49ers and Titans each have more than $24 million in rollover spending.

These amounts will be added to the salary cap space each team has at the beginning of the league year.

Here are the AFC East rollover amounts:

• Miami Dolphins: $8.36 million

• New England Patriots: $5.29 million

• Buffalo Bills: $2.84 million

• New York Jets: approximately $371,000

The Dolphins are interested in re-signing key free agents such as wide receiver Kenny Stills and Andre Branch as well as extending wide receiver Jarvis Landry and Reshad Jones.

Miami should also be in the market for at least one free agent linebacker, defensive end and tight end.
