The Miami Dolphins have addressed most of the glaring holes on their roster this offseason.  However, the one glaring hole that still remains is probably one of the most important.  The Dolphins are  in need of a tackle, be it a right tackle (moving Jonathan Martin to left tackle) or a left tackle (keeping Martin at right tackle).  The Dolphins aren’t saying whether or not they want to move Martin to left tackle, a position he played at the end of 2012 when Jake Long was injured.  The reason?  They’re patiently waiting to see how the draft and the remainder of free agency play out. Photo Courtesy of Chris J Nelson via Wikipedia The Dolphins have been flirting with RT Eric Winston since free agency began.  However, it is thought that Winston is looking for a multi-year deal.  The Dolphins seem willing to give him a 1 year deal, but at this point, he is in no rush to sign on the dotted line.  In regards to the tackle position, the Dolphins appeared to be in a holding pattern until the draft. However, yesterday’s news that the Falcons have released Tyson Clabo, could change that.  Reports surfaced yesterday that the Dolphins are probably done in free agency until after the draft.  That news came with the caveat that it was subject to change if ‘something good fell out of a tree’ (ahhh, the infamous ‘acorn’ analogy).  Clabo just fell out of the tree and into the free agent market. Tyson Clabo was an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest back in 2004 and will be 32 years old this season.  He’s 6’6″, 329 lbs and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2010.  Since making his first start for the Falcons in 2006, he has not missed a game.  That is durability, my friends.
