Jason Fox signs with Dolphins

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Fox has departed the Detroit Lions for the Miami Dolphins.

Well, that didn't take long. Earlier, we found out that offensive tackle Jason Fox was taking a visit with the Miami Dolphins. Shortly after, we learned that Fox signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins, meaning he is officially gone from the Detroit Lions.

Fox was a fourth-round pick of the Lions in 2010. He dealt with injuries throughout his first two years in the NFL, but he managed to stay healthy in 2012. This set him up to compete for the starting right tackle job in 2013, and he beat out Corey Hilliard for the top spot on the depth chart coming out of training camp. He just couldn't stay healthy, though, and he ended up making only three starts.

Undrafted free agent LaAdrian Waddle eventually became the starter at right tackle, and he is expected to retain that job going forward. Hilliard is also back (as a backup), but the Lions do need a fourth offensive tackle to round out the two-deep. It doesn't seem like they made much of an effort to retain Fox (likely because of his injury issues), and now they will officially have to bring in someone new to fill that hole on the depth chart.
