C'mon. Everyone is thinking it. Why haven't the Dolphins signed this guy? Clearly we do not have a center if we have to move Connor Williams to center. PFF considers him the 5th best center in the NFL.

Tier 3: Good, veteran starters
5. J.C. Tretter, Free Agent

There are still several impact free agents available as we march toward June, but Tretter comes in near the top of the list. Across Tretter’s five seasons in Cleveland, few centers were more durable or more reliable in pass protection. His 5,298 regular-season snaps played at center since 2017 fall behind only Jason Kelce and Ryan Jensen, and no center earned a higher grade in pass protection (90.6) over that stretch.

Any team with a question mark in the middle of their offensive line would be wise to bring Tretter in soon.

If he's that good, why hasn't anyone else signed him? We're not the only bad o-line/open C position in town.

I'm still wondering if Williams had C discussions with the Dolphins during negotiations.

Wondered that as well. I'm guessing money maybe.

It would give us 4 good answers on the O-line and simultaneously improve our depth. Why the heck not? Either 1) he's priced himself out of the market for his position or
2) teams are scared off by his union status (or both)

I don't get it.

I think we should sign The Tank.

Maybe it is a combination of things. I don't know how much he is asking but if significant then you also factor in according to press I remember reading he could not practice much if at all last year do to health issues.

If he needs to put in the work to learn a new O and jell with new teammates maybe the thought is he probably will not last all of next season at what price and when will it happen.
