Miami Dolphins hosted Rashad Jeanty

First, the Miami Dolphins outplayed the Cincinnati Bengals to acquire guard Richie Incognito. That's fine, I thought. We still Bobbie Williams, who we figure will be signed relatively soon. On Thursday, the Miami Dolphins hosted outside linebacker Rashad Jeanty. For the Dolphins, they are looking for a strong-side starting linebacker. For the Bengals, they could lose a quality special teams guy and a pretty good backup in case something happens with Rey Maualuga.

A restricted free agent, Jeanty was offered the lowest tender by the Bengals. That means if the Dolphins sign Jeanty to an offer sheet and the Bengals elect not to match, then Cincinnati will receive no draft pick compensation. The Bengals will have seven days to match if Jeanty signs a deal with the Dolphins. If Jeanty leaves, you can pretty much assume the team may look at the draft to upgrade their linebackers spot, especially with Dhani Jones entering the final year under contract.
