After a week of deliberation, the Miami Dolphins have finally decided on an offensive tackle. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, former Atlanta Falcons’ right tackle Tyson Clabo will sign with Miami soon as a deal is being finalized this morning.
Clabo’s agent has told Jackson the deal is only for one year but no financial parameters have been provided yet.
When Jake Long signed with the St. Louis Rams he left a huge void at left tackle. The Dolphins attempted to trade for Branden Albert but were not willing to give in to the Chiefs’ outrageous compensation demands.
Jeff Ireland’s solution now is to move second-year tackle Jonathan Martin to Ryan Tannehill’s blindside to fill the void left by Long, which of course creates another need at right tackle. So signing Tyson Clabo to play right tackle fills the Dolphins’ last remaining void along the offensive line and potentially the roster when you consider the pieces Ireland has brought in this offseason.
