Report: Dolphins to work out Samson Satele, others on Monday


The Dolphins’ search for offensive line help in the wake of center Mike Pouncey’s hip surgery is reportedly leading them to former Colts center Samson Satele.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins will meet with Satele on Monday. That’s also when former Cardinals guard Daryn Colledge is scheduled to visit with the team and Jackson adds that two other offensive linemen will also work out for the team, although their identities are unknown at the moment.

Satele started his NFL career as a Dolphin after Miami selected him with the 60th overall pick of the 2007 draft. He played two years with the team before they traded him to the Raiders.

Given the amount of experience both Colledge and Satele had, the Dolphins may be planning to fill out their workout list with other available vets. Fernando Velasco, Dan Koppen, Ryan Cook and David Baas all spent time as starting centers in recent seasons and all are currently unemployed.

  1. He’s gotta do better than his loser Hawaii teammate Colt Brennan. Lol, that dude was cut in four different leagues. Seriously, four leagues. Look it up…..

  2. Right now Miami has four guys who have never started a full season.Even though Thomas has been doing well in OTA and mini camp and they drafted James, I have to admit I am concern about this OL. No one knows where they will be till the real bullets fly.

  3. Desperation (at the center position) is a stinky cologne.

    THAT SAID… that stinky desperation is less stinky than mike pouncey’s low character.

  4. Use the guys already on the roster. There are young guys that can step up and get the job done. They need the experience and the team will likely need them later in the season

  5. Satele was solid as a Dolphin and Raider. He won’t show up on anyone’s all-pro list but he should be a more than servicable stop-gap until Pouncey can return to form. Sign him up. We’ve never had enough decent depth at any of our OL positions anyway.

  6. Satele is no mug he possibly has some very good years to come as a lot of O line guys seem to have have longevity but he is unemployed for a reason, other teams feel they have better or at least better value on their rosters at the moment, but guys like Satelle will find a home this year at some point and some will be miffed that they are not signed up and will make sure next year they are under contract by playing well when their numbers called this year. Sign him up if he hungry to play he will be a solid player.

  7. This guy single handedly put Luck under terrible pressure multiple times a game. It got to the point where Colts fans were rooting for a guy name AQ Shipley to stay in the game when he went down with injuries.

  8. Ha! we beat the system, we got Satele with the draft pick that we got for Wes Welker! then we traded Satele to the Raiders. NOW we sign him as a free agent……sighs
