Dolphins trade rumors: Is offensive lineman in play?

USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins appear to be looking to make a roster move tonight. While the early rumors have surrounded the running back position, offensive line appears to be gaining steam.

A flurry of activity around the Miami Dolphins right now appears to indicate a personnel move is coming.  The team waived defensive tackle Marvin Austin earlier today, freeing up a roster spot.  The initial rumors seemed to indicate a running back could be in play, and we took a look at some of the potentially available rushers from around the league.  However, it now seems the Dolphins are looking to the position that makes the most sense in terms of an upgrade - offensive line.

Will the Dolphins make a move?  Where could they look?  The NFL has already seen two offensive tackles get traded this month, with the Jacksonville Jaguars trading Eugene Monroe to the Baltimore Ravens for 2014 fourth- and fifth-round draft picks and the Arizona Cardinals sending Levi Brown to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a conditional draft pick.

Is there someone out there available?  Will the team look to the free agent market to bring in someone for depth - or possible to challenge Tyson Clabo at right tackle?
