This year, Solomon Kindley may not get the chance to develop and the Miami Dolphins could move on if he can’t improve in camp.

Solomon Kindley has had an up but mostly down career so far with the Dolphins and this year, his primary competition for the 53-man roster? Robert Jones.

Jones was a financial investment for the Dolphins. A guaranteed rookie contract as an undrafted free agent. Kindley has the value of being a draft pick. Now, the two could come head to head for what might be the last spot on the offensive line.

Both are guards and both will start the season near the bottom. They are not competing for a starting job and they may find themselves behind Michael Dieter if he shifts to guard. The Dolphins will at most carry 9 offensive lineman into the season.

Hunt, Jackson, Dieter, Williams, Armstead, and Eichenberg, make up the first six players. Larnel Coleman, Adam Pankey, and Greg Little are all tackles and at least two of them should make the team as well. If that happens, one spot will remain and the low men on that totem are Jones and Kindley.
