NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the Dolphins are signing OT J'Marcus Webb, according to a source informed of the situation.
The team later confirmed the signing and placed linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel on injured reserve.
While Webb has played mostly right tackle when he's been on the field in recent years, he'll be in the mix to potentially replace Tunsil on the left side, per Rapoport.
The 31-year-old has played just one game since 2016 while struggling with injuries. The one tilt came with the Indianapolis Colts last season before he landed on IR. Webb didn't survive final cuts in Indy this year.
After the Tunsil trade, the Dolphins are looking for any viable blocker to fill out what could be the worst offensive line in football this season. Webb is the first man to help fill those shoes.
Here are other transactions we're monitoring Friday:
- The Tennessee Titans announced they have agreed to a multi-year extension with long snapper Beau Brinkley. He has served as Tennessee's long snapper for every punt, field goal and extra point attempt for the past seven seasons.
