The Lions may be interested since Penei Sewell has looked very good in his place, but he will cost a draft pick and possibly a player (WR) thrown in. I think the future at LT is Eich for this team, so, I'm not sure if I'd consider a trade for him. Still, have you seen where our OL draft picks rank compared to the rest of the league? It may be smart to get a proven OLman rather than roll the dice once again in the draft.

One popular name among Dolphins fans this week for a potential solution is Detroit Lions tackle Taylor Decker. Decker, a former 1st-round draft choice out of Ohio State, is 28-years old and currently on Injured Reserve for the Lions after suffering a finger injury at practice just ahead of the season opener; meaning Week 3 will be the final week Decker must miss in accordance with roster rules and IR policy. So, if Decker is able to come back next week and pass a physical, is he a realistic trade target for the Dolphins?https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2021/ ... -dolphins/
Financially for Miami, Decker’s contract will be quite easy to absorb — his contract was restructured to manufacture cap space and his base salary this season is just $1M dollars — he was given a $12M restructure bonus up front from Detroit as the majority of his 2021 compensation. Miami, should they hypothetically acquire Decker via trade, would only be responsible for the $1M base salary against their cap in 2021. From there, Decker’s pay per season grows to $15M in 2022, $13.95M in 2023 and $13.7M in 2024.
