The Miami Dolphins are extending the contract of experienced offensive tackle Kendall Lamm, a key figure in their solid offensive line performance last season. Despite facing numerous challenges, including injuries to star players, Lamm’s versatility and reliability proved invaluable. He stepped in admirably when needed, starting eight games in place of the injured Terron Armstead. Lamm, who has served as the primary backup for the past two seasons, will continue in that role for a third year, providing crucial support to the often-injured Armstead.

Last season, Lamm logged significant playing time, with 520 snaps at left tackle and 93 at right tackle, marking his most active season since 2018. With potential changes looming in the interior of the offensive line, including departures in free agency and unsigned players, maintaining stability on the edges became paramount. Retaining Lamm underscores the team’s commitment to continuity while addressing concerns in other areas of the line, particularly at center and guard.

Since joining the league as an undrafted free agent with the Texans in 2015, Lamm has accrued 37 starts and played for five different teams, showcasing his experience and adaptability.
