The Miami Dolphins have signed offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn to a one-year deal, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Wynn was selected by the New England Patriots as the 23rd overall pick in 2018, starting four games at left tackle before being switched to the right side.
The Fins drafted OT Ryan Hayes out of Michigan in the seventh round this year, but Austin Jackson and Wynn will be the ones competing for the right tackle position in 2023, with the former starting two games in the position before spending the rest of the season out with an ankle injury.
Wynn presents a flexible option as he could play left tackle should the need arise, though he has struggled with injuries himself, playing 43 of 82 regular-season games for the Patriots.
He appeared in just nine games for New England after they picked up his $10.4 million fifth-year option, having sustained a hip injury.
Wynn isn’t considered to have the best physical attributes to play left tackle but he has impressive athleticism and teams seem to think he’s best deployed at guard.
The 27-year-old wasn’t all that pleased to be switched from left to right during training camp last year.
“Playing left all the time and then having to flip, that’s like you being right-handed and then you’re trying to write with your left hand,” he said back then. “But you get used to it the more you work at it.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
