The Miami Dolphins need some love on that offensive line. They struggled to keep Ryan Tannehill standing up straight during the year. They need help all across the offensive line, especially with the mess of Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin getting cleaned up and dropped off of the roster. The team will be looking to make some upgrades in the offseason and the team could be in pursuit of Kansas City Chiefs free agent LT Branden Albert. The team is expected to “go hard” for the left tackle in free agency, per the Palm Beach Post.

Albert would be able to add some stability to the left side of the line. He could give Tannehill some comfort on his backside and help pick up the protection.

Albert might be expendable for the Chiefs as well. The Chiefs picked up Eric Fisher with the first pick in the draft with the thoughts of him moving over to the left side of the line in the future. He struggled in his rookie season though and the team might have some second thoughts on moving him over to that position right now. We will see what happens with Albert.
