Miami Dolphins O-Line Struggles
DAVIE, Fla. — The biggest weakness of the Miami Dolphins this season has been their struggling offensive line. The Dolphins are 28th in rushing and have allowed a NFL-high 24 sacks on quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Although many Dolphins fans want changes right now, that is probably not going to happen during the bye week. Dolphins coaches said they’re sticking with the players they have, and an outside trade is unlikely.
But based on their contracts, Miami’s offensive line could be in for a major makeover in 2014. Three of the Dolphins’ five starting offensive linemen — tackle Tyson Clabo and guards John Jerry and Richie Incognito — are all unrestricted free agents after the season. Backups Will Yeatman and Danny Watkins are restricted free agents.
With the group underperforming, it appears unlikely that all of these players will be brought back in the offseason.
