The Wheel O’Tackles continues to spin, as unemployed blockers look for work.

And the Dolphins, who clearly need to pick one, keep looking at their options.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, former Falcons starter Tyson Clabo is headed to Miami tonight for a visit.

The Dolphins have previously sniffed around Eric Winston, as well as Bryant McKinnie. While McKinnie could reasonably still function on the left side, Winston and Clabo are right tackles, which would require Jonathan Martin to move to the left to replace Jake Long.

Clabo’s been a durable and solid player, starting every game the past five seasons for the Falcons. And while it’s still unclear if Martin’s ready or able to be a left tackle in the NFL, Clabo would stabilize the other side.
