I would say that losing two OL starters is a "reboot" process once again for the OL. This isn't the way to get continuity with a group where chemistry is very important. It all depends on hard work and good coaching, and the Dolphins are young and hungry.

Dolphins Wire (USA Today) wrote:
Miami, excluding transactions mid-season, lost nearly 3,100 offensive snaps (3,073). Those departures include:

* iOL Ted Karras – 1,067 snaps
* OG Ereck Flowers (trade) – 856
* QB Ryan Fitzpatrick – 496
* WR Isaiah Ford – 374
* RB Matt Breida – 151
* RB DeAndre Washington – 77
* OT Julie’n Davenport – 52

How does 3,100 snaps lost stack up to the league? Some teams, including the Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders and Houston Texans, lost in excess of 4,000+ snaps this offseason as of April. So while there’s plenty of change, it isn’t nearly up to the peaks of others across the league.

Sometimes it’s subtraction, plain and simple. And other times it’s addition by subtraction. Some of those names were folks taking a roster spot and not contributing quality snaps. A couple are truly a loss for us. Most notably, Fitzpatrick.

When you pay your QB enough cash to compete with Bezos, this may happen to you.

Exactly. The only players on that list who haven't been replaced with someone who is a significant upgrade are Karras and Fitzpatrick. Karras wasn't anything special, so that probably is a wash. And of course it remains to be seen about Tua, but we all know that our QB play is what is going to determine our season. Nothing new there.

Calm your anxieties, Ford is back.

The Dolphins announced they’ve re-signed free agent receiver Isaiah Ford. Ford was a Dolphins seventh-round pick in 2017 and spent most of his first four seasons with the franchise, appearing in 19 games. While Miami traded Ford to New England in November, the Patriots waived him in December. He landed back on the Dolphins’ practice squad shortly thereafter. He did not appear in a game for New England.

In all, Ford played 35 percent of Miami’s offensive snaps last year. He has 51 career receptions for 520 yards.

The Dolphins have also waived safety Brian Cole and center Tyler Gauthier. Both players spent the 2020 season on Miami’s practice squad and signed futures contracts with the club following the conclusion of the season.

I actually like Ford, and he is dependable, but I agree that I don't see how he makes our top 5-6 receivers.
