Former Chiefs lineman Bryan Witzmann lands with Miami Dolphins
By Matt Conner
The Miami Dolphins have bolstered their offensive line with the signing of former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Bryan Witzmann.
The Miami Dolphins continue to make moves to bolster their team—specifically along the offensive line—after trading away franchise left tackle Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans in a shocking preseason move. This week, they’ve added former Kansas City Chiefs lineman Bryan Witzmann to the active roster to add to their mix of options.
Witzmann has a monster frame at 6’7, 320 lbs. and has used that size and leverage to chart an impressive career for himself in the NFL despite entering the league as a small-school prospect out of South Dakota State. He entered the NFL with the Houston Texans as a rookie free agent back in 2014, and he’s familiar to Chiefs fans during his two-year stint with the team in 2016-17.
During his seasons with the Chiefs, Witzmann went from developmental prospect to starting left guard in ’17. That season, he started 13 games for the Chiefs between Eric Fisher and Mitch Morse but eventually lost his spot to Cam Erving (who then lost his role to Andrew Wylie). Witzmann played with Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears last season and made 7 starts in 10 games in the Windy City last season.
Witzmann went to training camp with the Cleveland Browns and John Dorsey, the general manager who brought him into Kansas City in the first place, this season but failed to make the active roster. The Dolphins are now his eighth NFL franchise after also spending some time with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys in years past.
