Zach Strief Visiting Dolphins
 
Miami Dolphins in talks with free-agent offensive linemen and... | www.palmbeachpost.com

"The Dolphins, who have several holes on their offensive line, also have reached out to former New Orleans right tackle Zach Strief, a source said.

Although Strief, 30, has never made the Pro Bowl, he was graded by Pro Football Focus as the league’s top right tackle in 2013."

Losing him will hurt. I hope we find a way to keep him, but I think we simply get outbid. He's gonna get a lot of money thrown his way.

Agreed
Gets alot of unfair criticism.
Im not to bothered about loosing DLP but for the right money Strief would be worth keeping if possible. He is 30 now though so cant really blame him for looking for the best paid deal.

O-linemen don't age as fast as other positions. Most play into their mid 30's.

He's probably got 4 or 5 more years left in him

This is the time for him to make his money though.
The market doesn't seem great for the players this year so I was hoping we could maybe keep him.

Saw a tweet earlier that according to the PA we are $2.8ml under cap.

Need sone restructures to keep him and even more to get the rookies snd practise squads in.
Personally I doubt we see much else above minimum depth contracts and draft players unless a trade comes in.

Yeah, without some fairly large restructures it looks like the big spending in free-agency may be over.

Looks like the bargain bin from here on out

Well we better find some good lineman in the draft. We prob just lost 2 starters.

Losing strief would be a real shame, he and evans anchored the right side of that line

Mickey can only do so much though, cant sign everyone
