Less than a day after the annual spending blitz that comes with the start of free agency in the National Football League; it’s clear the biggest winners after the first 12 hours are offensive tackles.
Going into the new season, the Miami Dolphins are going to need major help on the offensive.
If the Miami Dolphins do in fact covet left tackle Eugene Monroe as reports have suggested, it’s going to cost the team at least $10 million per season to get him.
The Miami Dolphins need a lot of help along the offensive line and the first chance to address that need is free agency. While players can’t officially sign until March 11, teams can contact free agents starting Saturday.
With Monday’s franchise tag deadline now passed, the Miami Dolphins can get a much better look at the players it can target in unrestricted free agency, which opens up next week.
The Miami Dolphins are looking to make a splash at left tackle in free agency to allow them to use the draft and other money to fill in the rest of the offensive line. The Fins have been linked to Branden Albert already and now comes word the Fins also “very much like” Eugene Monroe, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco are both likely eager to get back on the field after Week 4 losses.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to trade starting left tackle Eugene Monroe to the Baltimore Ravens for undisclosed draft picks.
