Dolphins sign Jason Fox

The Dolphins have added another piece to their rebuilding offensive line.

Jason Fox, an offensive tackle previously with the Lions, has signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins, a league source tells PFT. It’s something of a homecoming for Fox, who played his college football at Miami.

Fox entered the NFL as a 2010 fourth-round pick of the Lions and has played his entire career in Detroit. The Lions liked his talent, but he struggled to stay healthy, and he has started just three games in his four years in the NFL.

In Miami, Fox joins an offensive line that is trying to put last year’s dysfunctional season behind it. The biggest improvement the Dolphins have made was signing left tackle Branden Albert, and now Fox will compete for the opportunity to start at right tackle.

    Hope he stays healthy, but as a Lions fan I have no idea what kind of a player you are getting.

    No hatred towards the dude; we really just don’t know, which is in itself a bit of an indictment since he was on the Lions for 4 years and basically never saw the field.

    If he stays healthly, he’s an excellent pass blocker.Tannehill will love him.

    No matter how good the line gets it’s still not going to help Tannehill, he’s just terrible. Get him off the Dolphins and trade up for a QB. Dolphins won’t even be able to get the playoffs as long as he is the QB let alone win a SB.

    Seems like the one year prove it deal is a hot contract in the NFL this year. Cant blame teams for not wanting to lock up a player with an injury history for more than that when an extension is always possible if they stay healthy and get back to form during the year.
    Keep up the good work Hickey

    Great investment, low risk high reward. I think this allows the Fins to wait later rounds to draft OL and the best player available. Personally I hope they go after Mosley to help the LB unit

    Finally working on the o line!!! 1 year deals seem to work so much better for players to prove their worth!!! I still think there is good supply in the draft at o line!!!
