The Miami Dolphins search to fill a void on the offensive line finally comes to an end with the addition of veteran Tyson Clabo on a one year contract. Clabo, 31, was released by the Falcons at the start of the offseason as a salary cap move which saved $4.5 million. The 6-foot-6, 329 pound tackle started 101 games for Atlanta, including the full 16 games in each of the past five seasons. In those past five years, Clabo was used strictly as a right tackle, however he does have experience playing on the left side as well. In 2012, he was rated as the fifth best right tackle in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus. With the Dolphins, Clabo will remain on his natural side, the right, while second year player Jonathan Martin starts at left tackle which was his position coming out of college. Considering the current depth on the roster, the offensive line for the season opener is becoming much clearer barring any injuries. Left Tackle: Jonathan Martin Left Guard: Richie Incognito or Dallas Thomas Center: Mike Pouncey Right Guard: Lance Louis, John Jerry, or Richie Incognito Right Tackle: Tyson Clabo The two starting tackle positions along with center seem to be all but finalized. The competition at both guard spots will be an interesting storyline to follow when training camp begins.
