Albert joined the Dolphins in the 2014 offseason, signing a five-year, $47 million contract. Coming off his first career Pro Bowl appearance, Albert immediately established himself as the lockdown left tackle Miami needed. He upgraded the offensive line, a line that was completely rebuilt during that offseason, and he was able to protect Ryan Tannehill's blindside. Everything the Dolphins wanted out of Albert, he provided until a Week 9 ACL and MCL tear ended his season and forced the Dolphins into reshuffle mode as they looked to replace him. Albert is hoping to be ready for the 2015 season opener, which will be around 11 months since his injury.

Griems started his NFL career as an undrafted free agent out of Shippensburg. After signing with the Atlanta Falcons in 2006, he missed the season with an injury, then was allocated to NFL Europa where he played for the Hamburg Sea Devils, winning World Bowl XV. He returned to the Falcons in 2007, staying with the team through the 2012 season, a season in which he tore his Achilles tendon in the opening contest. Grimes then joined the Dolphins as a free agent in March 2013, signing a on-year "prove it" deal. Prove it he did, earning his second career Pro Bowl berth in 2013 after starting all 16 games and recording four interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, with 16 passes defensed and 60 tackles. Miami re-signed him after the season, and he again returned to the Pro Bowl after the 2014 season, following a five interception season, again returning one for a touchdown, with 58 tackles in 16 starts.
