As of right now, Laremy Tunsil and Mike Pouncey are the only two slated to start as a Dolphin next season. The rest of the line is a total mystery. There were reports that the Miami Dolphins may not bring back Ja’Wuan James, who was having a pretty good season before going to injured reserve. The team may have found a hidden gem in Jesse Davis who could play either guard spot or right tackle. Ted Larsen is a cheap option who wasn’t that great when he came back and the rest are developmental projects like Isaac Asiata. Now the Dolphins could spend another high pick on a o-lineman or could find some good options on the free agent market.

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