Dolphins making change to 4-3 defense

Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post is reporting that the Miami Dolphins have decided to transition from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 attack for 2012.  The report comes at a time when Miami has yet to officially hire a defensive coordinator, although all indications point to Bengals secondary coach Kevin Coyle getting the job.

The move allows Cameron Wake to move back to his original position as a defensive end.  It also affects several other players as Jared Odrick and Randy Starks would move from defensive ends to defensive tackle positions.  There's also the question of what to do with Paul Soliai.  Soliai played nose tackle in the 3-4 defense but now may be the odd man out in the 4-3.


  1. Tough decision about Soliai. Generally teams find a place for beasts like him.
