    Have to say, of the four they worked out, they chose the best one.

    Doesn't surprise me since he played for Philbin. I don't think he is a good player at thius point but I think he is better than some of what we have and is a veteran leader. I think this keeps one of the other guards on bench. Not sure who starts at center prob Brenner

    Barry Jackson also said that Miami could sign Ryan Harris in the coming weeks for depth at offensive tackle.

    Guess it's the best of those options and I sure didn't want Satele back neither from a functional nor symbolic standpoint. We can hope that Benson can improvise and thank heavens that it isn't Turner moving those pieces - so there's that. If our OL can hold it together until one of the best and most mobile centers gets back, we might just end up ahead of the game.

    In before someone complains about the signing as if Pro-Bowl centers are still available at the end of June.

    looks like the deal is done.

    Assume for a second that Brenner or Garner is the starting center. Thomas, Smith, Turner and Colledge at the guard positions seems like a pretty good group.

    Yeah, the same guy.

    I remember watching that a Long time ago, thinking, I respect his hard work a lot, he's clearly been breed and put in gear for this, he's going to make the NFL, but holy crap is he a douche bag.

    I don't have much opinion on colledge, pretty much a signing that makes sense.

    I just hope whoever plays center, can actually push a DT backwards. I never understood the love for pouncy, the guy couldn't move anyone, yet somehow was a considered really good. You never watched pouncey and said, "damn mike is dominating today, really opening up the run."

    Too bad we wouldn't have went after Zane Beadles hard. Would've really bolstered our interior line.

    Yea I thought they would add another high end veteran Time will tell if it was the right call, I'm not so sure it was. If Dallas Thomas can step up that would be huge.

    This is good news. I think with the Daryn Colledge signing we now have starters at both OTs both OGs and if Garner, Brenner or the rookie Larsen can step up at center we will be set. This won't be a good OL but maybe it will be as good as last years. At least the FO has seen enough to finally figure out Shelly isn't starting material. Personally I'm not sure he is backup material but they can't get him off the roster until next year.

    If you don't understand it says more about you then anythingI could say by debating you.

    FOs around the league understand Pounceys worth, this FO and fan base don't. Shocking? Not really.

    Colledge was one of four offensive linemen who auditioned for the Dolphins on Monday. The others: former Dolphins center Samson Satele, ex-Broncos center Steve Vallos and former Houston tackle Ryan Harris

    Nice try. Read the article and other posts regarding the team looking at OT depth in the form of RYAN HARRIS.

    ---------- Post added at 09:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:36 PM ----------

    I agree that Fox is shot and a flip OT is needed. Harris understands Benton and would be good depth. Glad to see the team is at least looking at things.

    The more depth will be better for competition and make the team better as a whole.

    Glad to hear this. Colledge may not be great, but he is serviceable as a pass protector ... something that Shelley is not and so many on this board refuse to acknowledge. We are a pass first offense, and while I hope very much the project that is Shelley Smith can develop quickly, the simple fact is that we need an alternative if he it doesn't happen quickly.

    Colledge is a NFL caliber OG. This means we should have a decent veteran to plug in there and give us better guard play than we had last year. It gives us a vet to help James. It let's us survive until Pouncey can return ... whenever that is.

    The Harris option is about whether we want to use Garner as an interior linemen. If so, we need another swing tackle because Fox will get injured.

    Every time I see this guy in a game, or mentioned, I can't help but to remember him on that MTV show "True Life" when he was a high school senior. It was about Body Issues or something, and he was "that guy" having to eat a lot and bulk up because he was going to college to play football.

    I think this signing means they are happy with Garner at center until Pouncey gets back. If we wanted a true center, we could have signed one. Colledge is here to play RG/LG.

    I'm hoping Brenner proves to be the better choice but, we'll see.

    When Pouncey comes back, then you are asking 2 starters to switch positions if Smith is center. With Garner playing center, we are only asking 1 guy to switch.

    Colledge's one year deal is worth $2 million and has $250,000 guaranteed. He is making less than Shelley Smith who is making $2.75 million.
