The Miami Dolphins were very aggressive early in free agency and it doesn’t look like they are done bringing in guys just yet. Following the departure of left tackle Jake Long, Miami is looking at options to replace the former No. 1 overall pick. They are looking in the open market that still features a umber of starting caliber offensive linemen and they have decided to bring one of those free agents in for a visit.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent right tackle Eric Winston will be coming to Miami to visit with the team just a year after he flirted with signing there just an offseason ago.
Former Chiefs/Texans OT Eric Winston is visiting Dolphins today. Deal could happen. Eagles, Pats, Chargers, Cowboys also interested.

Winston is well connected to the Dolphins.
He played two years under Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman during his time with the Houston Texans and his older brother, Matt, is a scout for the team.
If Winston were to join the Dolphins, he would plug in at right tackle, while last year’s second-round pick Jonathan Martin would slide over to the left side to fill the tackle void let by Long.
