Dolphins sign Daryn Colledge

The Dolphins officially signed offensive guard Daryn Colledge, the club said Monday evening.

It’s a one-year contract for Colledge, who has started 97 consecutive regular season games since 2007 in stints with the Packers (2007-2010) and Cardinals (2011-2013). The Cardinals released Colledge in March.

Colledge, 32, was one of four offensive linemen whom the Dolphins auditioned on Monday.

Per the club’s online roster, Colledge’s addition would give Miami 91 players, which means a corresponding move would be needed to clear a spot for him. The signing of Colledge was not listed in the NFL’s Monday transactions, which were released earlier in the day.

Colledge’s addition could suggest the Dolphins are, at least for the moment, focused upon in-house candidates to fill in for center Mike Pouncey, who had hip surgery last week.

    Good signing

    Miami offense looks like cap going into the season it’s a shame because the defense looks legit. Tannehill needs to step up in a big way if this team wants to compete in that division. It might seem crazy but Buffalo is going to be fighting to get in the playoffs bank on it.

    A good sign, experience is what the fish needs, and he will help the O line. Bill

    He was a second round pick, and the Packers won a Super Bowl with him starting at LG. Hardly a “bomb”.

    Colledge has started 124 of his 128 NFL games, including every game the past six seasons. He played his first five seasons with Green Bay and his past three with Arizona. Last year, Colledge played left guard, and Pro Football Focus rated him 45th of 81 qualifying guards — 32nd in pass protection (he allowed two sacks) and 53rd as a run blocker.
    Colledge knows Dolphins coach Joe Philbin well from their time together in Green Bay. He grew up in North Pole, Alaska, and was the Packers’ second-round pick out of Boise State in 2006.

    I don’t see how signing a durable veteran isn’t a good thing. Colledge is far better than any Guard we had playing last year & that includes Incognito whose play really fell off before ‘Bullygate.’ If D. Thomas or Turner or Brenner step up then great but this is a pretty solid insurance policy.

    I believe Garner will be good enough to be our starter at Center until Pouncey returns (whenever that is???) but if he slips & Brenner can’t get I done then I wouldn’t rule at signing Satele.

    I wish he would replace the free Hernandez pouncey.

    How did we get the Danny Devito of the twins?
