Dolphins sign David Arkin off Cowboys practice squad

The matters involving Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and tackle Jonathan Martin go well beyond the field of play, but it doesn’t mean that the departure of both players from the team leaves the Dolphins in need of some help on the offensive line.

They addressed that need on Tuesday. Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reports that the team will sign guard David Arkin off of the Cowboys’ practice squad to fill the spot on the roster opened up when Incognito was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.

Arkin was a fourth-round pick in 2011 and has stuck around the Cowboys for the last three years without ever playing in a regular season game. He’ll almost certainly move into a reserve role with the Dolphins, who will give Nate Garner first crack at the open job at left guard.

Presumably recent events will allow him to start practicing without paying any dues to the veteran members of the Dolphins offensive line.

Well, he does run and pass block. What is there really out there at this point of the season? We'll only get speedbumps to slow the defense down.

I thought we may have revisited OG Lance Louis. He must really not be ready.

Stat lines look favorable and there is plenty of upside to this guy. Might be a little developmental, but a body is a body at this point, and lets hope McKinnie, Garner, Pouncey, Jerry, and Clabo can hold up together

Do you want to hear something strange? The Panthers' OL has been devastated with injuries and are converting a couple of DTs as guards.
