New offensive tackle thinks their is a lot be optimistic about with the new look Miami side.
After signing as a free agent last week, offensive tackle Tyson Clabo thinks the team are on a path to ‘make some noise’ during the upcoming NFL season.
After being cut by the Atlanta Falcons due to salary cap restrictions, the Miami Dolphins picked up a very solid right tackle, as they aim to reinforce an offensive line that will be able to protect a young Ryan Tannehill next season.
A long time fan favourite in Atlanta, Clabo is a reliable pass blocker, that also excelled in run blocking schemes, as the team look set to challenge the New England Patriots for the AFC East crown next year.
The Pro-Bowler was impressed with what was happening in South Beach, and was quick to praise the organisation for it’s work during the off-season.
“We made some big moves in the off-season and in free agency, the draft looked like it went really well, you never know but it seems like there is some talent,” Clabo said.
“The young QB with a lot of upside and I just felt like we could make some noise.”
Miami have a good chance of sneaking a Wild Card spot in the AFC Playoffs next season, thanks in part to a weak AFC conference, but will face stiff competition from Indianapolis, Kansas City and Cincinnati for one of those two spots.
