    Former Broncos center Steve Vallos also coming in for a look

    2 p.m.: Add veteran center Steve Vallos to the list of players who have been summoned to Dolphins headquarters for a Monday audition.

    Vallos joins Samson Satele and Daryn Colledge (see below) as players scheduled to work out for the team on Monday.

    Miami is searching for a veteran who can help compensate for the loss of center Mike Pouncey, who is expected to miss between two and six regular season games after hip surgery.

    Vallos, 30, has played in 59 games over seven seasons, with nine starts. He played two years in Seattle, two in Cleveland, and for Philadelphia, Jacksonville and Denver the past three seasons.

    He appeared in 15 regular season games for Denver last season, according to NFL.com, but logged only nine offensive snaps, according to ProFootballFocus.com. But he was forced into action during the Super Bowl because of an injury to Denver's center.

    Yeah, 9 snaps last year, and 2 fill in's in 2012 does not inspire much confidence. He would be one of the vets who come in with no guarantees and a longshot to make the team.

    We're bringing in some real nobodies for workouts but all that is left now is a list of scrubs.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    Hopefully there will be some better players available when teams cut down to 53 in late August.

    Well Satale and Colledge have been starters most of their career so I don't think they are nobodies. Vallos on the other hand who has 2 starts in the last 4 years is definitely a nobody. He was promising when he first came into the league with Seattle but never developed.
    The best of this bunch is Colledge but none of this guys is going to get much of contract .
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    True, but this GM seems to see something in "nobodys". Who would have thought about bringing in Shelly Smith and paying him starter money?? Shelly is a bigger "nobody" than several names on that list of centers. So maybe he knows something we don't, or then again maybe he just wants to see Ryan in a body cast...

    Shelly is barely getting starter money.

    $2.5 in 2014
    $3.0 in 2015

    doesnt even crack top 25 paid Guards in 2014

    Body cast? He'll be in a coffin if we don't get our o-line shored up.

    We may as well bring Seth McKinney and Tim Ruddy in for a tryout too. Hell, bring in Marc Colombo while we're at it.
