The Miami Dolphins will be without center Mike Pouncey for a significant period of time, so they signed Samson Satele to fill the hole at center.
The Miami Dolphins had arguably the worst offensive line in the NFL as it allowed a league-high 58 sacks, and it received negative publicity for the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal.
Mike Pouncey was also discovered to be a part of the harassment of Martin, but he was still one of the few bright spots on the offensive line.
The Dolphins received a major blow when it was announced Pouncey would miss five to seven weeks. They had upgraded the offensive line over the offseason, but losing Pouncey will hurt.
They are attempting to soften the blow with the signing of Samson Satele. Satele performed poorly in 13 starts for the Colts last season, but he will provide much-needed depth and starting experience that few other linemen available can offer.
The Dolphins will still have veteran left tackle Branden Albert and first-round rookie right tackle Ja’Wuan James starting. Satele will look to recover from his rough 2013 season and help boost the Dolphins’ offensive line.
