Dolphins work out former highest-paid guard, 5 others

The Miami Dolphins are always looking for ways to improve their roster, and it’s important to continue doing this throughout the season.

On Tuesday, the team held workouts for six players – offensive linemen Andrew Norwell, Colby Gossett and Wes Martin, and defensive backs Bubba Bolden, Dane Cruikshank and A.J. Moore.

Norwell, 32, went undrafted in 2014 out of Ohio State, but he caught on with the Carolina Panthers, playing four seasons there and making one All-Pro First-team. He became the league’s highest-paid guard the following offseason when he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Norwell spent four seasons in Duval before playing with the Washington Commanders in 2022.

Gossett, 25, was a sixth-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2018 after a collegiate career at Appalachian State. He’s bounced around a bit in his time in the NFL, spending time with six teams. Overall, he’s appeared in 19 games and started five.

Martin, 27, was a 2019 fourth-round selection by Washington out of Indiana. He’s also spent time with the Jaguars, New York Giants and Cleveland Browns, playing 38 games and starting 11 over the last five years.

Bolden, 24, went undrafted in 2022 after playing collegiately for USC and Miami which included Second-team All-ACC honors in 2020. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks but spent his rookie season on the Browns practice squad.

Cruikshank, 28, was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fifth round of the 2018 draft out of Arizona. He played four years with Tennessee and spent time with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets since. He’s appeared in 54 games, recording 66 tackles, two passes defensed, one interception and a forced fumble.

Moore, 27, was an undrafted free agent signed by the New England Patriots back in 2018 after playing for Ole Miss in college. He was claimed by the Houston Texans during roster cuts in his rookie year and played out his rookie contract with the team before spending last season with the Titans. He’s played in 56 games, recording 69 tackles, two forced fumbles, one pass defensed and a sack.

While the Dolphins have yet to make a signing from the group, these will certainly be names to follow considering Miami’s health at guard and safety.
