According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are close to a deal with former Packers and Cardinals lineman Daryn Colledge.

He was apparently the winner of the four-man cattle call, which included Samson Satele, Steve Vallos and former Texans tackle Ryan Harris. ...

If history repeats itself, he'll tear his ACL/PCL/MCL/BCL/XCL/ZCL/ICL/ECL/RCL before he's done here, while Satele has a pro-bowl year for someone... LOL

DAVIE—

The Dolphins have signed left guard Daryn Colledge, an eight-year veteran who spent the last three seasons with Arizona and his first five seasons with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin in Green Bay, according to an NFL source.

This is how it affects our OL (according to Barry Jackson):

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

Colledge, 32, has played some center and tackle but has been primarily a guard during his eight-year NFL career, and the Dolphins indicated they intend to use him at guard.

With Pouncey expected to miss between two and six regular season games after hip surgery, the Dolphins’ current options at center include backup Sam Brenner, Nate Garner or potentially first-team right guard Shelley Smith.

Smith has taken snaps at center throughout the offseason program but has never played the position in an NFL game and as of Monday, had been given no indication if he will be moved to center during Pouncey's absence.

Colledge could settle in as a backup but there are two scenarios in which he could emerge as a starter to begin the season:

1) If he beats out Dallas Thomas, who has taken most of the first-team snaps at left guard during the offseason program, and rookie Billy Turner; or

2) If Smith moves to center until Pouncey's return, which would open a starting guard spot. Colledge, Thomas or Turner would compete for two starting guard jobs in that scenario.

Brenner took the first-team snaps at center during the one minicamp practice that Pouncey missed. The Dolphins do not intend to sign Satele at this point but had a favorable impression of his workout and it's possible that idea could be re-visited down the road.

The Dolphins liked Harris and could consider adding him for tackle depth in the coming weeks.

Colledge, 32, started 124 of his 128 NFL games over his eight years, including every game the past six seasons.

He played his first five seasons with Green Bay and his past three with Arizona. Last year, Colledge played left guard, and Pro Football Focus rated him 45th of 81 qualifying guards --- 32nd in pass protection and 53rd as a run blocker.

Colledge, who allowed two sacks last season according to PFF, knows Dolphins coach Joe Philbin well from their time together in Green Bay.

Colledge grew up in North Pole, Alaska, and was the Packers’ second-round pick out of Boise State in 2006.

We were looking at the 31st ranked OL now we "upgrade" to the 45th!

You know that the ranking doesn't differentiate between left and right guard, right?
