New offensive parts Wilson, Kilgore and Sitton fitting in at Fins OTAs
DAVIE, Fla. (CBS12) —
The Dolphins have a quarterback coming off major knee surgery - so as important as Ryan Tannehill looks in OTAs, is how the guys in front of him look. And the Dolphins have made some major changes to the offensive line.
Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey is gone to the Chargers - in steps veteran Daniel Kilgore. The 30-year old played 74 games with the 49ers - and he said this week, he's all ready in a groove with his snaps to Tannehill.
The new man to Kilgore's left, is guard Josh Sitton. At 6'3 318 pounds, the UCF grad looks like a mountain man with the beard and the flowing locks. Both are expected to help the middle of the fins offensive line, which has been weak spot at times during the Adam Gase era.
Sitton says he may shave off the hair and beard during the hot training camp days. He's spent his career in Green Bay and Chicago.
The line isn't the only unit seeing some major changes for the Dolphins. With the loss of leading receiver Jarvis Landry - the Dolphins signed two receivers to fill in the gap, former Patriot Danny Amendola, and Port St. Lucie native Albert Wilson.
So this is a dream come true for Wilson - his first time putting on the aqua and orange helmet this week at OTA's. Wilson was a skeleton key for the Chiefs - running in the slot, going out for long bombs, and even taking handoffs up the gut. He's expecting to take his versatility to the next level, while doing it in front of a home town crowd.
