With new weapons all over the place, the Dolphins should field a dynamic offense. As long as they address that pesky position called offensive tackle.

Miami is hosting three free-agent right tackles for visits Wednesday: Eric Winston, Tyson Clabo and Winston Justice, according to the Miami Herald. Winston and Clabo started all 16 games for Kansas City and Atlanta respectively last season, while Justice started 12 for the Colts.

The visits come on the heels of left tackle Bryant McKinnie's Monday visit. In addition, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland insists the team is still open to trading for Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert.

In one current scenario, Miami would sign one of the free-agent right tackles and move 2012 rookie Jonathan Martin to left tackle. But Martin struggled at left tackle late in the season when he moved over to replace the injured Jake Long. Then Long signed with St. Louis, leaving the Dolphins with a big question mark in their retooled offense.

When the Dolphins traded up to the No. 3 overall pick in last week's draft, many assumed they'd grab Oklahoma left tackle Lane Johnson. Miami picked Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan instead.
