DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Going into the new season, the Miami Dolphins are going to need major help on the offensive.
Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin are presumably out of the picture. Bryant McKinnie, who replaced Martin at left tackle, may not re-signed because he didn’t play well last year.
So who may fill their cleats?
CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald reports the Fins are looking at Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert, guard/tackle combo Rodger Saffold, Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe and Raiders left tackle Jared Veldheer.
Albert is reportedly very high on the teams wish list, according to the paper, which said if signed, Albert would most likely take up the left tackle position while Safford would be a guard.
That scenario would cost Miami a pretty penny but luckily the organization is about $34 million under the salary cap, according to spotrac.com.
If the team loses out on Monroe, they would reportedly would consider using Saffold at left tackle or going after Veldheer.
