    From everything I've read about Mangold, he has been a shell of his former self for a couple years.

    Center probably is the biggest concern on offense. I just don't have faith in Pouncey staying healthy. If Mangold is healthy, I think he would be worth a one year deal, assuming he is willing to take that.

    Yep. His play dropped off even before he was hurt last yr. 33 yr old Center with his mileage? No thanks

    The Dolphins should be prepared to move on from Pouncey next season. They need to keep their fingers crossed for this season and then address the center position next off-season with the draft choice or a free agent. You just can't keep living on a "wing and a prayer" with Pouncey, especially at his salary and his injury history.
