The Dolphins, I’m told by a source familiar with the team’s plan, have identified a veteran free agent offensive lineman they want to add not long after free agency begins.
I know the Dolphins have identified this mystery player because they believe he will fill two significant voids:
The first void is obvious in that the Miami offensive line has been a weak point for years despite resources of money and draft picks being pumped into the unit. Well, more resources are coming in the way of this expected free agent addition, if a deal works out.
The second void is about — surprise! — culture and leadership and chemistry.
I’m told this player could easily become a leader on the offensive line and even on the offense. And the Dolphins need that.
Josh Sitton is exactly who we need.
