The Miami Dolphins are still in the market for free agent tackle Eric Winston, reports Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. The team has remained in contact with Winston and fans shouldn't have to wait long to learn what chance the team has of signing Winston.
Winston was released by the Chiefs in order to save salary cap space, and a point of contention in talks so far has been how much Winston is willing to accept in a short-term deal with the Dolphins. Winston's previous contract was a four-year, $22 million deal with Kansas City, but he was released after the first year.
Miami had a successful draft, but the 2013 class only included one offensive lineman, third-rounder Dallas Thomas. As Dolphins blog The Phinsider points out, Winston would fit well with the team, having experience zone blocking and having proved himself a durable, reliable player. Winston plays at right tackle, so moving current right tackle Jonathan Martin would be a possibility.
