The Miami Dolphins’ biggest problems stem from their poor offensive line play, they could consider several free agents to improve their position.
Over the next two weeks, you’ll be reading the quote “the game of football is won and lost in the trenches,” but will the Dolphins learn it? In this three-part series, we’ll cover how the Dolphins could fix offensive lineman issues through free agency, the draft, and a handful of trade options.
In 2021, the Dolphins had one of the worst offensive lines in all of football, it turned a team that tried to throw into the field into a running pass option (RPO) offense to give Tua Taogvailoa a chance to throw the ball. The Dolphins had three players ranked in the top 11 when it came to giving up the most sacks. After allowing a league-high 235 pressures, the team’s offensive line was also ranked last in the league, according to PFF.
The Dolphins are currently expected to have the most cap space this offseason to go along with 44 players already on the roster. The team will have to meet two pressing needs this offseason, the offensive line and the running game.
I’ve already broken down several options for the Dolphins with running backs that include trade options, free agents, and through the 2022 NFL Draft class. But if the team wants a solid running game, any running back ball would improve behind a better offensive line, so we’ll look at some options Miami could target in free agency.
