Jason Walker of ESPN.com reports this morning that free agent offensive tackle Jason Fox is visiting Miami this week, according to a league source. What type of role would the four-year pro have if he decides to sign with the Dolphins? Lets have a look.
Fox is a career backup who started only three games in his four seasons in Detroit, but all of those came last season. With Branden Albert signed to play left tackle and the addition of Shelley Smith at guard, Fox would join the competition at right tackle.
Walker adds of Fox, a fourth-round pick in 2010: "He is not the long-term answer for the Dolphins. But they need bodies at right tackle, where they only have the versatile Nate Garner and maybe 2013 third-round pick Dallas Thomas on the roster."
Kansas City could be the main competition the Dolphins face here; Fox visited the Chiefs on Monday, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
