The Dolphins have apparently found their next tackle, and that will require another one to move.
According to a tweet by his agent Chad Speck, the Dolphins are signing former Falcons right tackle Tyson Clabo today.
That means last year’s second-rounder Jonathan Martin will be playing left tackle this season, and presumably kills the possibility of a Branden Albert trade.
The Dolphins invested heavily in receiving targets for Ryan Tannehill this year, and now they’ve stabilized his protection a bit.
Clabo’s been a solid and dependable starter for the Falcons, but how Martin holds up in pass protection remains to be seen, and will be a key to the Dolphins’ success this year.
