The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins "reached out" to the representatives for free agents G/T Rodger Saffold and LT Jared Veldheer on Saturday.
LT Branden Albert is believed to be the Dolphins' top priority in free agency. They'd reportedly like to sign Saffold as a guard, though they're not opposed to Saffold playing left tackle. Veldheer and Eugene Monroe would be fallback options for Miami if it can't land Albert. We'd almost prefer both Veldheer and Monroe to an aging Albert. Offensive line is GM Dennis Hickey's main focus.
ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports the Vikings are showing interest in free agent CB Alterraun Verner.

Verner played under DB coach Jerry Gray in Tennessee the last three seasons, so the dots certainly connect. The Vikings also had one worst pass defenses in the league last year and have yet to re-sign Chris Cook. Verner is a top-two free-agent corner and could command $10 million annually. Minnesota has roughly $41 million in 2014 cap space.
ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas reports C Jeremy Zuttah's roster spot could be in danger.
Zuttah has started all 32 games the past two seasons and can also play both guard spots. He has two years left on a four-year, $16.3 million deal. The Bucs can clear Zuttah's entire $4.5 million cap hit without any dead money hits if they choose to release him. Zuttah, 28 in June, is merely an average talent.
