When the Miami Dolphins chose rookie offensive left tackle Jonathan Martin out of Stanford, they knew he would be on a learning curve switching to right tackle. But with the release of the first depth chart, Martin seems to have won the Fins coaching staff over.
It’s tough to miss a 6’8” nearly 340 pound man, but the Miami Hurricanes football team had been doing just that through the first three practices of fall camp.
To quote legendary rock icon Alice Cooper, “School’s out for summer. School’s out forever.” That’s especially good news for the Miami Dolphins as the final three rookies joined offseason team activities Monday morning.
Offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has come to an agreement with the Miami Dolphins on a four-year contract that will pay him just less than $5 million, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
While most of the focus for the Miami Dolphins has been on free agent quarterback Peyton Manning; a player who just became a free agent Monday could be the answer to a long festering problem for the Dolphins.
Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano confirmed Wednesday the team has moved Vernon Carey to the right guard position along the offensive line. Carey had just returned to the team after missing Monday’s practice for personal reasons.
Miami Dolphins right tackle Vernon Carey rejoined the team Wednesday after missing the last practice after he was asked to take a pay cut to stay with the team, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The Miami Dolphins want to add more pieces to their roster for 2011, but need more salary cap room. So, the Fins have turned to their offensive line for some salary cap relief.
