The Dolphins didn’t return Andre Gurode’s phone call, but they may still have interest in adding a veteran offensive lineman to the mix after losing Mike Pouncey for at least three months after hip surgery. Longtime football writer Jason Cole reports that Daryn Colledge will visit with the Dolphins in the near future. Colledge was cut by the Cardinals early in the offseason and has drawn smatterings of interest in the last few months without landing a job.
With 124 starts under his belt, Colledge has plenty of experience but almost all of it is at guard. Should he wind up in Miami, the team might take a look at Shelley Smith at center with Colledge at guard although there are a few ways the Dolphins could go in the wake of Pouncey’s surgery.
Colledge’s chances of landing with the Dolphins may be helped by the fact that he played for Miami coach Joe Philbin for five years when Philbin was the offensive line coach and offensive coordinator in Green Bay.
