The Miami Dolphins fans have provided their wish list, and free-agent left tackle Branden Albert is sitting at the top.

As we approach the start of NFL free agency at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, we asked fans this week to vote on the player Miami should sign on the first day. The results were overwhelming.

More than 2,000 votes were tallied, and more than half (54 percent) voted for Miami to sign Albert, which has a strong chance to happen. The Pro Bowl left tackle has been on Miami’s radar and both sides have been in talks since Saturday. The Dolphins set a franchise record with 58 quarterback sacks allowed in 2013.

Coming in second is another left tackle: Eugene Monroe. He played well for the Baltimore Ravens last season and earned about 35 percent of the vote. No other player received more than 7 percent.

It’s clear the Dolphins will attack the offensive line in free agency this week. It won’t be cheap to replace four lost starters, but Miami has the cap space to go after some of the best players available in the trenches. It's all about protecting third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
