Dolphins re-sign Isaiah Wynn, add Eagles lineman as 2024 O-line continues to come together

The Miami Dolphins entered the 2024 offseason with the possibility of having to replace four of their five starters from last season’s offensive line.

Before Monday, they had one of those returning and one leaving. Left tackle Terron Armstead opted against retirement for another year in Miami, and right guard Robert Hunt left the Dolphins in free agency for a lucrative contract with the Carolina Panthers.

Isaiah Wynn swung the score back in favor of the returners Monday, agreeing to terms to re-sign with the Dolphins on a one-year deal, according to multiple league sources, including agents Drew Rosenhaus and Shawn O’Dare.

Later Monday, the team announced the signing of versatile lineman Jack Driscoll, providing further depth and competition up front for the team in 2024.

Wynn was having a successful 2023 season after earning the starting left guard spot in training camp. But after seven sound starts, a quadriceps injury cut his campaign short.

A former first-round pick of the New England Patriots out of Georgia in 2018, Wynn struggled early in his career as a tackle. He was excelling in a transition to guard in Miami, however, under coach Mike McDaniel, offensive coordinator Frank Smith and offensive line coach Butch Barry before the leg ailment put a halt on his momentum.

Wynn will likely get a chance to compete throughout the offseason and training camp to earn that role back on the 2024 team.

While the Dolphins offensive line lost a valuable member of the unit in Hunt, Miami did sign former Tennessee Titans center Aaron Brewer in free agency. Brewer can play center or guard. The starting tackles are settled between Armstead on the left side and right tackle Austin Jackson, the 2020 first-round pick who signed an extension during the past season.

The one starter from last season still in the balance is Connor Williams, the Dolphins’ center of the past two years. Williams tore the ACL in a knee last December, and he has been focusing on his rehab before delving into his free agency this offseason, according to both Rosenhaus, who also represents him, and Miami general manager Chris Grier. Williams has also previously been a guard with the Dallas Cowboys before playing center with the Dolphins.

The team also re-signed guard Robert Jones this offseason and returns 2021 second-round draft pick Liam Eichenberg and fellow lineman Lester Cotton, all who started games as backups in 2023.

Driscoll comes to the Dolphins after spending his first four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles as a 2020 fourth-round draft pick. He has appeared in 54 games for the Eagles, primarily as a versatile reserve, with 17 starts.

“It’s something that I feel benefits my skill set,” Driscoll said Monday in a web conference call of signing with his new team. “Just seeing the way that coach McDaniel, this organization is run, just all that taken into consideration, felt it was my best opportunity.”

Driscoll could present a backup swing tackle for Miami, as the team needs one behind Armstead and Jackson with veteran Kendall Lamm a free agent. He has experience playing both tackle spots and guard in Philadelphia. He added he has practiced at all five positions on the line, while coming into the league predominantly as a right tackle out of college.

“Just whatever position I’m asked to play, just go out there and do my best and compete,” Driscoll said.
