Commanders could sign Robert Hunt

The Miami Dolphins have some big decisions to make along their offensive line. They are projected to be significantly over the cap and have two first-rate offensive linemen hitting free agency this offseason.

Center Connor Williams may end up being their priority. He would be on this list if not for concerns about the torn ACL that ended his season - and seriously hurt the Dolphins postseason chances - last December. If they do prioritize him, that means guard Robert Hunt will almost certainly be available.

Hunt played on the same college offensive line as Kevin Dotson. The Washington Commanders also have two defenders from that Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns team on its roster in Percy Butler and Andre Jones Jr.

He played mostly at tackle in college and his massive size - 6-foot-6 and 330 pounds - has some people wondering if he could move back outside in the pros. But Hunt has been a very good guard for the Dolphins, steadily improving through his early career, to the point where he finished 2023 as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 rated guard.

The veteran has the power to be an excellent interior run blocker. Hunt also boasts the technique and athleticism to be an effective pass blocker as well.

Hunt may come a little bit cheaper than Ezra Cleveland and Mike Onwenu due to concerns over a hamstring issue that plagued him throughout 2023. But he has been a generally durable performer throughout his career and should be back to full strength by the start of the 2024 campaign.

For the Commanders, Hunt would immediately step in as the starting left guard - a position that Saahdiq Charles and Chris Paul struggled with in 2023.
