Kelly: Will the Dolphins’ latest O-line makeover finally work? | Commentary

Maybe Miami’s been doomed for picking Jake Long over Matt Ryan in 2008, or this is the byproduct of Bullygate saga caused by Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin’s toxic relationship, or the Chris Foerster white-powdery-substance drama in 2018.

The Dolphins possessed a reliable offensive line in 2008, and a forceful one in 2016. And those were coincidentally the only seasons Miami produced a winning record and qualified for the postseason the past two decades.
