Found April 29, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Miami Dolphins had their sights set on Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Branden Albert earlier this offseason. While those talks appear to have stalled, the Dolphins have reportedly turned their attention to another former Chiefs player. Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins have “maintained steady dialogue” with free agent offensive lineman Eric Winston. Source: Dolphins have maintained a steady dialogue with Eric Winston, and we should know in the near future if a deal is a real possibility. — Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) April 28, 2013 Beasley adds that it should become clear in the near future if there is a real possibility of a deal between Miami and Winston. The Dolphins have a void to fill at tackle after former All-Pro Jake Long signed a free agent deal with the St. Louis Rams. They have Jonathan Martin to play on one side of the line, but they still need another tackle. Miami drafted Dallas Thomas in the third round, but he’s viewed as more of a guard than tackle. Winston parted ways with the Chiefs in March, as he was cut in order to free up cap space.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
