The Miami Dolphins are concerned about their center position, with starting center Mike Pouncey out for at least the first half of the season as he recovers from offseason hip surgery.
To help address the issues at center, the Dolphins are bringing back a familiar face.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have signed veteran center Samson Satele.
“The Dolphins expect the addition of Samson Satele will help solve snap issues, add depth, create competition,” Salguero wrote on Twitter.
Satele joined the NFL when the Dolphins drafted him in the second round out of Hawaii.
During his time with the team, Satele started 32 games in his two years with the team. Satele then moved on to play and start for the Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts.
We will now see whether or not Satele can return to the Dolphins starting line up.
If he can fill in and hold down the starting job until Pouncey rejoins the team, it will be a great veteran signing for the team.
