Miami Dolphins

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – While much of the focus on the Miami Dolphins offensive line has been at the tackle position, general manager Jeff Ireland wouldn’t mind upgrading the right guard position, currently manned by John Jerry.

Thursday, the Dolphins will welcome in former New York Jets right guard Brandon Moore, according to FoxSports.com’s Alex Marvez. The 32-year-old Moore is considered the top guard remaining in free agency and has started 137 consecutive games dating back to 2004.

The Jets have had little to any contact with Moore since free agency began and his veteran presence could pay big dividends for a young Miami Dolphins team overall.

The Dolphins had right tackle Eric Winston visiting the team on Wednesday and combining Moore and Winston would give the Fins a vastly improved right side of the offensive line to combine with Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and Mike Pouncey.

The Dolphins, according to the Palm Beach Post’s Ben Volin, have a little more than $12 million in cap space as of Wednesday, but will acquire another roughly $7 million on June 1. Any amount the Dolphins don’t use against the 2013 salary cap can be carried over to next year’s cap.
