We mentioned earlier in the day that the Dolphins were interested in talking to Saints right tackle Zach Strief.

He, on the other hand, seems less interested.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Strief told the Dolphins he wasn’t interested in coming for a visit, without giving a reason.

Maybe he’s staying with the Saints. Maybe he knows what the Dolphins’ financial parameters are and he thinks they don’t suffice. Maybe he’s got something better lined up. Maybe he doesn’t think he looks good in aqua.

Whatever the reason, he’s not interested, and the Dolphins will continue to search for help to rebuild an offensive line.
