The Miami Dolphins will bring back a certain big man on offense but will move on from another on defense.The Dolphins announced Tuesday that they re-signed offensive lineman Nate Garner, who will provide some depth at tackle as the team continues to figure out what life will be like without veteran left tackle Jake Long."I think we definitely can be better as an offensive line," Garner said Tuesday, via MiamiDolphins.com. "Jake is going to be sorely missed but I think we’ll recover and move on down the road and just try to get better as a unit.”Garner, who stands at 6-foot-7, is capable of playing all along the line and started the last four games in 2012 at right tackle. As for the defense, Miami will not re-acquire interior lineman Tony McDaniel, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.  McDaniel battled numerous injuries last season in a depth role. He's totaled 8.5 sacks in seven seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dolphins.Follow Nick @NickStD...
