Kraig Urbik scheduled to visit Dolphins

The Dolphins signed Jermon Bushrod earlier this offseason with the intent of having him compete for a starting job at guard this year and it appears they’re planning to add at least one more veteran to the mix.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins will have former Bills lineman Kraig Urbik in for a visit on Tuesday. Per the report, the team is expected to sign Urbik if all goes well during the visit and physical that Urbik is scheduled to take while in Miami.

Urbik was released by the Bills early in the offseason after spending the last six years with the team. He played in every game over the last three years, but moved from a full-time starting role in 2013 to making 13 starts during the last two years.

Jackson reports that Urbik, who has played both guard and tackle, is viewed as a “depth signing,” although, like Bushrod, he’ll have a chance to show the team he should be a starter. Billy Turner, Dallas Thomas and Jamil Douglas return for the Dolphins after providing underwhelming guard play in 2015.

    Urbik has possibly one or two more years in him but his play is nothing spectacular.

    More of a fill in guy during injury than a long term answer.

    A houseplant would do a better job blocking than Dallas Thomas !

    Fins draft guards like Browns draft QB’s. They should be trying to dump the ones they drafted and pick up good starting vet guards.
