Former Dolphins offensive lineman Will Yeatman visits with Texans, Vikings

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

After suffering a torn ACL last season, offensive lineman Will Yeatman was allowed to go to free agency by the Miami Dolphins this offseason. A report now says Yeatman is starting to visit teams.

Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Will Yeatman has had visits with the Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings, according to National Football Post's Aaron Wilson.  Yeatman, who was not given a restricted free agent tender this year by the Dolphins, tore his anterior cruciate ligament during practice in November.  He spent the remainder of the year on injured reserve.

Yeatman originally signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent tight end in 2011.  He was waived at the end of the preseason, with many expecting him to re-sign with New England as a member of their practice squad once he cleared waivers.  Instead, Miami claimed him.  During the 2012 offseason, Miami new head coach Joe Philbin moved Yeatman from tight end to offensive line, playing both tackle and guard positions.

He appeared in 15 games during his career with the Dolphins, three as a rookie, four in 2012, and eight last year.  He took 17 offensive snaps for the Dolphins in 2013, primarily serving as a sixth offensive lineman, reporting as a tackle eligible as Miami looked for an answer to the constant pressure on quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

According to Wilson's league sources, Yeatman met with the Texans and Vikings over the past two days.  He's also visited with the New York Jets this offseason.
