Gabe Jackson, OG, Las Vegas Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders recently released Gabe Jackson, making him one of the bets guards on the free agent market. The move saves Vegas about $9 Million in salary cap space. If the Dolphins are committed to playing second rounder Robert Hunt at offensive tackle, they may find themselves searching in free agency for a guard.
However, the Dolphins should absolutely not be looking to add a guard in free agency. Hunt is a natural guard and sliding Solomon Kindley back to his natural left guard spot is best for all parties involved. Trading Ereck Flowers after June 1st should be high up on the Dolphins list as well.
The Dolphins should be looking to add a center and a tackle. Packers center Corey Linsley should be their number one target this cycle. In the draft, while it is expected that they take a receiver with their first pick, Oregon’s Penei Sewell would round out the offensive line nicely. Investing in a future that features Robert Hunt at offensive tackle has a lower ceiling.
While many fans want Miami to go crazy in free agency and add to the roster, it feels unlikely. The Dolphins seem content on adding quality players on reasonable deals and continuing to build through the draft. A name to keep an eye on is Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Levonte David.
