The Miami Dolphins could start putting tarps over empty seats in the upper deck this season. Could renovations be coming to the stadium in the future?

The Miami Dolphins are concerned with the lack of attendance at Sun Life Stadium going forward. Renovations could be coming to the stadium that opened in 1987, but before that, there could be tarps placed in the upper deck of the stadium to cover the seats that do not sell all that much, according to an article on Pro Football Talk by Mike Florio.

The Dolphins also believe that they do not have enough seats in the bottom half of the bowl.

"We have the furthest distance from the sidelines with our lower bowl in the NFL," team president Mike Dee said. "We have the fewest number of seats in that lower seating level between the 20 yard lines, between the goal lines, in the NFL. Not just the facilities that compete for Super Bowls. We've got to fix that."

The biggest hurdle the team will have to jump when it comes to renovations is figuring out how to pay for them.
