Another former Patriots starter is on the move, and this one isn’t going to Detroit.

According to Jeff Howe of TheAthletic.com, the Dolphins have agreed to a deal with Patriots center Ted Karras for a one-year, $4 million contract.

The 27-year-old Karras started 15 games for the Patriots last year.

The Patriots are hoping David Andrews returns after missing last year with blood clots, but Karras is the latest starter to head out the door in what could become a dramatic rebuild by Bill Beleichick.

The signing continues an aggressive start to the new league year by the Dolphins, who have also signed cornerback Byron Jones, defensive ends Kyle Van Noy and Shaq Lawson, among others.

  1. The ‘Phins are rebuilding their offensive line with Flowers and now Karras. They still need to get a solid left tackle. FA or draft?

  2. Nice upgrade for the Dolphins on a fantastic contract. Dolphins are setting themselves up nicely with a multitude of draft picks for the upcoming season.

  3. Some folks think BB is concerned about losing players. He has not a worry in the world, given his accomplishments. The ebb and flow of players each year is simply part of the game. In fact, I suspect he enjoys the oppotunity and challenge of working with new talent to see what can be done.

  4. Throwing money against the wall to see if any sticks is not a good roster strategy in the NFL.
    From past FA history,… Redskins, Browns, Broncos, Giants, etc…. it doesn’t guarantee results.

  5. Patriots will get their normal 4 compensation draft picks in 2021, it appears. However, without Brady they are also going to be picking early in that Draft.

    My prediction: they go 7-9.

    Good for him. He is more of a spot player, but good for him. He certainly played well last year.

    True, but neither is sitting on over $53M in cap space.

  8. Just an ok signing. People on here who are praising this obviously didn’t pay enough attention last year. His blocking was suspect, and he had issues with getting clean snaps in the shotgun. Good backup but I’d be a little worried if he’s ur everyday starter

  9. The league has finally figure out how to beat the PATS. If you can’t beat them… pull them apart player by player!

    Miami gets excited every year at about this time. It’s kind of cute.
    ————–
    …..remember by week 5 last year when the entire fanbase was calling for Brian’s head?

  11. The Dolphins are doing a great job. Now it would be nice if they would go sign a veteran left tackle like Jason Peters to play and teach their young offensive linemen how to be great.

  12. Miami gets excited every year at about this time. It’s kind of cute..
    Miami has 14 Draft Picks we are very excited

  13. Fins are making all the right moves and still need to do more. Imo they should take Derrick Brown, Wills, Wirfs, or Becton at #5 and Hebert or Love at #18 and Jackson or Cleveland at # 26.

  14. This was another good pick up. I am not usually a fan of free agency splashes but these are all young players unlike in the past getting washed up older players.
    Miami will do just fine this season.

  15. Dolphin fans acting like they just signed Alex Karras instead of Ted.

    This Karras is a backup who was forced into duty last year and did ok.

  16. Well, the Pats get their starting center back from injury all last season, so this isn’t terrible news.

    And yet Belichick wanted to keep him and was offering him more money. He reportedly (Barry Jackson, Miami Herald) took less money to play with Miami.
