    Played well last season, not an amazing scheme fit but is solid and reportedly is fine with a one year deal if the money is right... Winston, while a better scheme fit wants a long term deal as he is sick of moving his young family

    Sounds good. I really want Martin to be the guy. We need a cheap, 1 year deal RT.

    Love it. Ireland is bringing in everyone to see who checks out the best. In the end, I bet its Winston afterall

    This is the guy is the perfect fit. Played well last year, quality veteran. I want him more than either of the UM boys McKinnie or Winston.

    here's the thing, you bring in these guys, and eventually one of them will wow you (or they won't) but you also leverage them against each other (provided they don't have the same agent). we will get a good deal out of our shopping.

    exactly

    There is no rush and as time goes by more OL will be released to make room for those early round OL picks this year.
    I'd say it's a buyers market for sure.

    Armando talent level: If this were an NFL game and Armando was a starting LT he'd have already given up five sacks while being pancaked every time...

    Why is he not an amazing scheme fit? He's coming from the Falcons who run the same type of zone blocking scheme.

    I do not think it will be Clabo. This is a threat to soften KC for Albert if I were to guess.

    I like that Ireland is choosing carefully and didn't panic and rush to sign someone.

    The best part of the Bryant McKinnie and Tyson Clabo visits is that it shows that the Dolphins understand that tackle is still an issue. They wanted to address the tackle position, haven't to this point but haven't just thrown up their arms and said we will let the young guys battle it out. Dallas Thomas is more of a guard and a likely 2014 replacement for Incognito, so it is nice that they don't seem to try and throw him into one of the tackle jobs.

    The season doesnt start for 4 months, so we have plenty of time to find someone. Winston, Clabo and McKinnie arent old...all can have 4-5 good years left in them. Even if we do sign Winston, he can still be a good RT for us for 4 years. Clabo seems like the better RT, but Winston seems like the cheapest.

    As for Branden Albert, thats just a smokescreen. No way does Miami want a guy like him. Ireland simply wants to push Martin to be the best he can possible be.

    While we most likely will end up going with Martin at LT, you can't tell me we spent a ton of time, effort, etc. in negotiating a deal with KC on Albert just to motivate Martin going into this season. There's obviously some concerns there with Martin, but the alternatives have either been way too expensive ($ and picks) or just not that much better than trying the younger Martin.

    whats the rush... not very many other team have shown interest in them and the longer this gets drawn out, the better chance we get OUR guy at OUR price

    Really, the Dolphins understand that OT is still an issue? My God they're brilliant. My 3 year old God-daughter understands tackle is an issue.

    Sign LT Clabo and RT Winston and let LT Martin earn the position. Frankly, Clabo is the better player. Martin looks like a project.

    I don't think they would have spent all that effort with KC just to motivate Martin, but they might have done all that to throw teams off of the fact that we coveted Dion Jordan. It's possible we wanted other teams to think we were desperate for a LT and that any trade up would be for one of the 3 elite LTs and not Jordan. They may be perfectly happy with Martin at LT, and just used a perception of need at the position to hide their real intentions. Of course we still need at least a RT.

    honestly after watching irelands interview about the trade, i dont think the plan going into the draft was to trade up for jordan. I think that when we called just to see the price to move up and were blown away at how little we had to give up, then ireland had to do the trade.

    Well clearly they weren't moving up for a LT, or they would have taken one with the third pick unless they aren't sold Johnson will be a good player. And yet leading up to the draft there was constant scuttlebutt that we were inquiring what it would take to move up to various slots. If that wasn't all bs, it wasn't about moving up for one of the tackles. Might have been about Tavon, but clearly we might have had Jordan in mind as well.

    Who ever miami decides to sign or who ever agrees to terms first will for sure hold down the right side...the only tackles who they want on left are mckinnie and Albert ....the rest will be placed on right side where they fit and means that they envision JMart protecting the blindside.
