The plans to bulldoze the Miami Dolphins' offensive line were already drawn up. The unit's struggles in 2013, which included a franchise-record 58 sacks allowed, warranted the unit got a makeover this offseason.

But the Ted Wells report on the Dolphins' locker room culture, and its details of the troublesome behavior by key starters on Miami's offensive line merely reinforced the organization's need to start fresh.

The Dolphins will have roughly $30 million in cap space this offseason, and that's before possibly restructuring some contracts, or possibly releasing players to create more cap space.

Sources say Dolphins owner Steve Ross has given new general manager Dennis Hickey the greenlight to use whatever resources he needs to improve the team, with the understanding that finding a new offensive line is the team's top priority.

Jonathan Martin, who was at the center of the bullying saga that sideswiped Miami's 8-8 season, wants to continue playing. However, there's concern about whether Martin, who started and struggled in his 23 games at left and right tackle, would feel welcomed inside the team's locker room considering the harassment he endured from three of his linemates before leaving the team in mid-October.
