12:59pm: Fox’s deal is worth $795K, according to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald (via Twitter). That sounds to me like a minimum salary benefit contract, with $65K in bonus money.
12:22pm: The Dolphins have inked offensive tackle Jason Fox to a one-year contract, according to Pro Football Talk (via Twitter). Earlier today, we heard that the team was hosting Fox on a free agent visit.
As Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald suggested earlier today, the Dolphins are likely bringing Fox aboard to provide depth and potentially compete for playing time, rather than assuming he’ll be the answer at right tackle. Still, there’s some upside in the move. Fox is only 25 years old, and as Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press tweets, the former fourth-rounder won the Lions’ right tackle job out of camp last season before his year was derailed due to injuries.
