The Miami Dolphins don’t want to lose receiver Kenny Stills and are still making a strong push to keep him, though they do have a limit in mind.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports notes the Dolphins are willing to pay Stills upwards of $8 million per year to stay in Miami.

This is a bit more money than had previously been reported as the limit Miami would be willing to spend. The only problem here is that Stills is likely to see more money elsewhere. We delved into this topic a bit, which you can read about here.
Still caught 164 passes for 2,738 yards and 20 touchdowns the past four years. And he had a breakout campaign playing in Miami this past year, hauling in nine touchdowns and averaging 17.3 yards per catch.
Deep threats who can haul in touchdowns are highly valuable in this league, and there are some receiver needy teams flush with cash to spend.
