Well, the Dolphins added a guard finally, though it may not be who everyone may have thought of. Jermon Bushrod, who has been a Pro-Bowl left tackle in the NFL, will be moved to the inside.

If it doesn't work out, there's is no problem having Bushrod be a swing tackle behind Albert and James.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
