Dolphins VP Mike Tannenbaum won’t say no to Evan Mathis pursuit
Because of their glaring need at the position, and their willingness to write the big checks for name players, the Dolphins are going to be linked with veteran guard Evan Mathis until he signs somewhere.
And Dolphins vice president Mike Tannenbaum did little to quiet that talk Tuesday, saying on WQAM that it was still a possibility.
Asked about making a run at the former Eagles Pro Bowler, Tannenbaum replied: “We’ll have to continue to get better, we’ll see where our guard situation goes.
“I’ll never rule out getting this team better,” he said, via the Palm Beach Post.
Tannenbaum said nice things about other players, specifically Dallas Thomas, but the Dolphins could clearly use an upgrade.
The Jets have also inquired, but don’t seem to like the price. But that also doesn’t hurt any potential bargaining position with an AFC East rival, either.
