Dolphins to host OT Jason Fox

The Miami Dolphins are bringing in free-agent offensive tackle Jason Fox for a visit this week, according to a league source. The Dolphins are searching for depth to fill their much-maligned offensive line, which struggled mightily last season.

Fox is a career backup with just three career starts with the Detroit Lions in four seasons. He is not the long-term answer for the Dolphins. But they need bodies at right tackle, where they only have the versatile Nate Garner and maybe 2013 third-round pick Dallas Thomas on the roster.

Fox also is an University of Miami alum who knows south Florida well. He was a fourth-round pick of the Lions in 2010.
