The majority of the offensive line has been terrible this season, but Jesse Davis might be the biggest disappointment of all.
As a unit, the offensive line is young. Theoretically, there is still time for guys like Austin Jackson and Liam Eichenberg to develop and fix the woes that have been on display this seasons. They’ll both likely be returning next year, and hopefully to better results.
The excuses for Davis are running thin, however. The seventh-year tackle has been a starter for the Dolphins since 2018, and was supposed to be the veteran protection for Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside. Instead, Davis has been one of the lowest rated linemen in the league this season. He has become part of the problem that he was supposed to be a band-aid for, and because of that, Miami could be looking to move on from him come spring time.
Davis will still have a year left on his contract, and it could be difficult to move an underperforming lineman who is owed roughly $5 million next season. There would have to be a viable backup plan, as addition by subtraction is always a dangerous game. But any time you can move on from one of the worst-rated players in the game, you have to explore the option.
