The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are "privately very optimistic" about Jonathan Martin's chances of becoming a solid left tackle.
That must be the case, as despite an abundance of sound and fury, the Dolphins never seriously pursued an alternative after Jake Long bolted for the Rams. Martin, for his part, is relieved to finally know his position. "It's exciting to play left tackle in the NFL - that has been a dream my whole life." Martin is "devouring four meals a day" in an effort to get up to 318 pounds after playing near 305 last season. The Dolphins' bevy of moves could be all for naught if Martin isn't up to the challenge of protecting Ryan Tannehill's blindside.
