MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins’ offensive line depth took a small shot Wednesday when head coach Joe Philbin announced backup guard Eric Steinbach was going to retire.

Steinbach was trying to resurrect his career after sitting out last season due to a back injury. Before that injury, he had started all but one game of his professional football career with the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns.

Steinbach had ties to Coach Philbin from the University of Iowa. Philbin coached Steinbach at Iowa and helped turn him into a multi-year starter in the NFL.

“I remember when he was 18-years-old and it was like pulling teeth from him to get him to move from tight end,” Philbin told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Omar Kelly.

With the loss of Steinbach, the Dolphins will likely start the year with an offensive line that looks like this from left to right: LT Jake Long; LG Richie Incognito; C Mike Pouncey; RG Artis Hicks; RT Jonathan Martin.
