The team announced on Wednesday that it met with former Titans fullback Ahmard Hall, who has spent his entire six-year career in Tennessee. According to The Palm Beach Post’s Ben Volin, they also visited with Jeff Link, a free agent fullback from the 2011 draft class.
Link went undrafted last year after a four-year career at Robert Morris University.
If the Dolphins do add Hall or Link, he’d likely compete for time with newly added fullback Jerome Messam, who previously played for the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos.
While there has been a considerable amount of focus on potentially selecting a quarterback in the top half of the draft, the Dolphins are also looking at options to create depth for training camp, checking in with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Matt Blanchard.
