The Miami Dolphins seemingly have the best chance of a Super Bowl victory in decades. They have a great roster and one of the best young coaches in the league, making it an exciting time to be a Miami Dolphins fan.

The offense is maybe the most explosive in the NFL. When quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was healthy last year, he teamed up with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to make the Miami Dolphins offense incredibly fast and dynamic. And, add in third-round draft pick, Texas A&M running back Devon Achane, and that offense is loaded with playmakers.

But, that’s when Tua Tagovailoa was upright. The already-injury prone quarterback suffered multiple concussions last year, and at times his career seemed to be in doubt. It’s a shame, too, as he proved himself to be among the league’s best quarterbacks when healthy lqst season. He completed 65% of his passes for 25 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, good enough for a 105 passer rating and early-season MVP talk.

The offensive line for the Miami Dolphins is a problem. Left tackle is all set, as the team signed Pro Bowler Terron Armstead to a long-term deal last offseason. But, 2020 first round pick Austin Jackson has not worked out at right tackle.

So, the team is bringing in another former first round pick, former New England Patriots offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn.

Wynn has proven he can be a serviceable starter in the NFL, as he’s started 40 games in five season for the New England Patriots. But, injuries have killed him, as he has played in less than half of the team’s games in that timespan. He has experience at left tackle, right tackle, and at guard, so the Miami Dolphins are getting a versatile option here.

Hopefully, he can help keep Tua upright.
