'Phins to take foot off gas on guard hunt, for now

The Miami Dolphins officially announced the signing of veteran tackle Jermon Bushrod Friday, who's played 108 games in the league and is a two-time Pro Bowler.

And while none of those starts has been at guard, he may get a shot at transitioning in 2016.

According to Adam Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, Miami is thinking about giving Bushrod a shot at switching — a testament to how badly Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner were last season.

Abramson also reported that the team isn't expected to make any other big splashes on that front for at least another month:
"The Dolphins passed on the top two free agent guards, Alex Boone and Kelechi Osemele. There are still some free agents available, including Geoff Schwartz and Evan Mathis, but the Dolphins plan to wait until the draft to decide whether they bring in another veteran guard."
