Poll: Dolphins' biggest remaining need?
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins are off to a solid start in free agency. The team signed the best left tackle on the market – Branden Albert – as well as safety Louis Delmas, cornerback Cortland Finnegan, guard Shelley Smith and defensive tackles Earl Mitchell and Randy Starks. All of these players filled voids on Miami’s roster.
That brings us to our Saturday poll question: What is Miami’s biggest remaining need?
Do the Dolphins need to find a right tackle? Miami traded Jonathan Martin and Tyson Clabo is an unrestricted free agent. The Dolphins spent $47 million on Albert to protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s blind side. But what about his front side? Dallas Thomas, a 2013 third-round pick, is a project who had trouble getting on the field last season.
What about Miami’s guard position? Is this the next need that must be addressed? The Dolphins signed Smith, but they still have one guard opening remaining. Currently Sam Brenner or Nate Garner would be projected as a starter.
Finally, do the Dolphins need another tailback? Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas did not get the job done last season. Should the Dolphins add another veteran tailback to the mix?
