MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins wanted to solidify the team’s offensive line this offseason, and on Tuesday it appears they took a huge step toward achieving that goal.

The Dolphins and free-agent offensive tackle Terron Armstead have reached an agreement on a 5-year contract, a league source confirmed to Local 10 News.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal could be worth up to $87.5 million and includes $43.3 million in guaranteed money.

Armstead, 30, is a former third-round pick of the New Orleans Saints

He was widely considered one of the top players to hit free agency this year.
