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.

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. (continued on page 2, click here)

The Dolphins might have let their new logo slip out earlier than they wanted to. But, they are trying to keep their new helmet and jerseys under wraps for as long as possible. They are hoping to have a grand unveiling on the day of the Draft, April 25th. Well, it seems that some one within the organization seems to have not gotten that memo. Earlier today on Twitter (from...
The Miami Dolphins have been aggressive so far this offseason. They hope that their aggressive approach to add to the talent on the roster will result in a more aggressive offense and defense on the field this fall. So, it should come as no surprise that the Dolphins are rumored to be interested in moving up in the draft. The Dolphins certainly have the assets to move up into...
The Miami Dolphins have had a very busy offseason. The Dolphins have jettisoned a number of team leaders, while getting both younger and faster at a number of key positions. The Dolphins lost Jake Long, Sean Smith, and Reggie Bush to free agency and cut ties with 2 starting linebackers, Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett. In exchange, the Dolphins have added Mike Wallace, Brandon...
Joe Philbin once said, "in nine years offensively in Green Bay we never had one guy come in there as a free agent and really contribute. So, my mindset is more let’s get guys into our culture. Let’s...
