NFL rumors: Dolphins 'very much like' Eugene Monroe

There is no secret that the Miami Dolphins, who could be entering the 2014 NFL season with five new offensive linemen, will be actively searching to bolster their offensive front during the offseason.

Whether it be in free agency, the 2014 NFL Draft or both, Miami will be making some additions.

According to the Miami Herald, one of the players who could be making his way to South Beach is offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, who is set to hit free agency in March. The Dolphins are said to “very much like” Monroe.

Monroe is believed to be a priority for the Baltimore Ravens, but if he hits the open market there will be plenty of suitors.

Before joining the Ravens, Monroe played for the Jacksonville Jaguars so there is definitely some familiarity there for Monroe in the state of Florida.

The Dolphins new general manager, Dennis Hickey, is expected to actively work on improving the team’s offensive line and adding Monroe would be a great start.

Another target for the Dolphins is expected to be Branden Albert, but it will be interesting to see if either player would be willing to join Miami as a free agent if they can get an offer from a more stable organization.
