Daryn Colledge MIA 11 Days

Dolphins signed G Daryn Colledge to a one-year contract.

A ninth-year veteran with 124 career starts, College adds interior line depth to a Dolphins unit that'll likely be without C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) for several games to open the season. A roughly replacement-level starter, Colledge would ideally be a reserve in Miami, with Sam Brenner or Nate Garner holding down center until Pouncey returns. The Fins' current starting guards are Shelley Smith and Dallas Thomas, with rookie Billy Turner pushing for snaps.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are expected to sign free agent OL Daryn Colledge.

Colledge has experience at all five positions on the offensive line, though he's certainly on the downside of his career at age 32 and is merely average at best. The Dolphins are picking Colledge over fellow free agents C Samson Satele, C Steve Vallos, and RT Ryan Harris. Colledge should be a versatile backup.

The Dolphins will host former Cardinals OG Daryn Colledge for a free agent visit.

The Fins are "searching for solutions" after losing C Mike Pouncey to hip surgery, which will cost him at least the first month of the season. Colledge does not have experience at center, but has lots of it at guard, and knows coach Joe Philbin from their time together in Green Bay. He's 32 years old.

The Dolphins have also expressed interest in free agent OG Daryn Colledge.

Colledge will meet with the Eagles on Tuesday. In Miami, he'd have a much better shot to start at right guard where third-round rookie Billy Turner and second-year G/T Dallas Thomas are currently expected to compete for the job.

Free agent OG Daryn Colledge will visit the Eagles on Tuesday.

Now that the draft has come and gone, veteran free agents should start getting more play. Colledge was released by the Cardinals in March and has paid visits to the Rams and Raiders. The Eagles didn't draft a single offensive lineman over the weekend. Colledge has experience at all five positions.

Free agent OG Daryn Colledge left his Rams visit without a contract, and will now visit the Raiders.

Colledge is best suited for a reserve role at this point in his career, but would certainly be in the mix to start in Oakland. The Raiders had some of the league's worst guard play last season.

The Rams are hosting OG Daryn Colledge for a free agent visit Wednesday night.

Colledge is 32 years old and best suited as a versatile reserve, but the Rams have a need at left guard after losing Chris Williams to Buffalo, and he'd likely start there if signed. For now, at least, St. Louis has Rodger Saffold at right guard, Joe Barksdale penciled in at right tackle, Scott Wells at center, and injured Jake Long tentatively manning Sam Bradford's blindside.

Cardinals released RG Daryn Colledge.

The Cardinals have designated Colledge as a post June 1 cut, so his $4.6 million in dead money will be spread out of the next two years. His release creates a total of $2.3 million in cap savings. Earl Watford will compete for Arizona's starting right guard job in 2014.

The Cardinals are expected to release RG Daryn Colledge.

Colledge, 32 next month, carries a 2014 cap hit of $7.275 million. The Cardinals would eat nearly $5 million in dead money by cutting him but could designate Colledge as a post-June 1 cut and split the difference between 2014 and 2015. Colledge graded out in the middle of the pack in Pro Football Focus' guard ratings. Last year's fourth-round pick G Earl Watford is expected to compete for the starting right guard job in Arizona. Jonathan Cooper will be back at left guard.

Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge was forced from Arizona's Week 7 game against the Seahawks with a back injury.

Colledge was deemed "questionable," but it doesn't appear he'll be returning. Nate Potter is now in the game at left guard. It's not good news for a team whose line has been getting overwhelmed.
