On Saturday evening, the Miami Dolphins announced that they signed free agent center Samson Satele. Thanks to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, more information has come out regarding the signing.
The Dolphins actually tried to sign Satele the day before camp started, but Satele wasn't interested in what the Dolphins were offering. He was seeking a deal closer to what Daryn Colledge got ($2 million), as opposed to the minimum $855,000.
The Dolphins ultimately increased their offer, and Satele agreed to terms on a one-year contract.
Satele, drafted 60th overall by Miami in 2007, started his first two NFL seasons for the Dolphins before being traded to Oakland in March 2009 for a sixth-rounder and an exchange of fourth-round picks. The Dolphins parted ways with Satele after signing free agent center Jake Grove. Satele then started three seasons for the Raiders, before moving on to Indianapolis, where he started 11 games in 2012 and 13 in 2013.
