    Saturday Dolphin tidbits from Barry J

    ### The Dolphins have scheduled a Monday visit with veteran starting guard Daryn Colledge, who would provide depth and versatility on a unit still stinging from the loss of center Mike Pouncey.
    Under new general manager Dennis Hickey, the Dolphins have attempted to sign every veteran free agent who has visited.
    Colledge --- who has played guard, tackle and even center on a limited basis during his career --- has started 124 of his 128 NFL games over his eight years, including every game the past six seasons.
    Colledge, 32, played his first five seasons with Green Bay and his past three with Arizona. Last year, he 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, knows Dolphins coach Joe Philbin well from their time together in Green Bay.
    Pouncey, who had hip surgery last week, is expected to miss between two and six regular season games. The Dolphins say Sam Brenner is their backup center, but Nate Garner is among several other options to fill in for Pouncey. So is first-team right guard Shelley Smith, who has taken snaps at center during the offseason program.
    If the Dolphins decide to move Smith to center, Colledge could play guard. It's possible Colledge also could take snaps at center.
    Dallas Thomas has taken most of the first-team snaps at left guard during the offseason program, with rookie Billy Turner backing him up.
    Colledge's versatility makes him a sensible fit regardless of what permutation the Dolphins choose to replace Pouncey until his return.

    Pending a physical you can bet he's a sure thing to get signed.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    -- Joe Philbin 01/12

    There was another thread talking about him. The consensus was kick the tires. Philbin knows him well and he may be able to help at guard if they go with Shelly Smith replacing Pouncy. He could possible play center as well.
    Definitely not a long term solution but maybe a band aid until Mike gets back.

    Depth and band aid for sure. Also is a great veteran with playoff experience.

    He would be a good addition if healthy.
