Terron Armstead will be the Miami Dolphins’ anchor and most important asset for the offense
After having some of the worst offensive lines in the league the Miami Dolphins were able to sign one of the best in the league. It’s a step in the right direction if Terron Armstead can stay healthy.
The Dolphins’ two big splashes this summer – Armstead, and Hill – filled major positions of need. Armstead becomes an immediate locker room presence and a veteran voice for the offensive line.
The team’s history of drafting offensive linemen hasn’t worked out great, but Armstead has already shown his teammates the fundamentals of being professionals. Another coach, who is a Pro-Bowl caliber player, is always a plus.
If Armstead and the rest of the offensive line hold up for Tua Tagovailoa, then the Dolphins’ offense should be successful. The biggest drawback with Armstead is his injury history. Throughout his 9-year career, Armstead has yet to play a competitive season – he played in 15 games in 2019. Losing Armstead would leave a massive hole at left tackle that would need to be filled likely by Liam Eichenberg, who struggled the majority of his first season.
It won’t be up to Armstead entirely to sort out the offensive line, but his role as mentor and veteran should play a big role in improving the unit as a whole and giving the Dolphins’ offense a legit chance to be great.
