Dolphins sign Marc Colombo

The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent offensive tackle Marc Colombo, who was cut by the Dallas Cowboys last week.

The 32-year-old Colombo started 15 games for the Cowboys last season but was made expendable when Dallas drafted offensive tackle Tyron Smith this year.

In Miami, Colombo could challenge incumbent starter Vernon Carey at right tackle. Colombo also gives the Dolphins more depth on the offensive line with starting left tackle Jake Long currently relegated to the physically unable to perform list.

    If that’s the case the Dolphins are truly hurting.

  2. I wonder what are the odds of this site having more then 5 blogs without one or more being negative,theses people suck the oxygen out of this blog, go away, we have read your blogs forever, and its always the same, not a new thought at all, I think all they do is read the head line and no more, do us a favor and go away.

  3. Nice depth addition. Some Miami “fans” have been negative about additions that aren’t pro bowl players that will add major impact, but these little moves can sometimes make all the difference.

    The Dolphins were paper-thin behind Long and Carey (unless you’re a big Lydon Murtha fan), so adding an experienced player to the team is a nice plus.

    Granted, he’s a better RT so if Long goes down or isn’t ready to start the season, that’s a problem, but were we REALLY going to get a backup on Long’s level? I don’t think there is one…

    Maybe he will get Henne hurt too!!!

    Colombo did not get Romo hurt. It was the FB Chris Gronkowski.

  5. O’Hara would have made more sense to me. Honestly, I’m tired of all the Cowboys rejects. I don’t think any have panned out.

  6. If he beats out Carey does that mean were gonna cut or trade carey and free up alot of cap space to sign other players or just more depth

  7. Vernon Carey was once a guard earlier in his Dolphins career, and no one besides a few struggling 2nd year guys are filling that hole.
