The Miami Dolphins added some veteran depth to their offensive line Monday with the signing of free agent Daryn Colledge to a one-year deal.

The team lost starting center Mike Pouncey earlier this month to a hip injury that is likely to keep him out for the first few games of the season, so an extra body was needed on the offensive line to help compensate for Sam Brenner and Nate Garner having to cover at center.

Colledge, a native of Alaska, has been in the NFL for eight years, with the last three spent playing for the Arizona Cardinals. Prior to that he played five seasons for the Packers, where Joe Philbin was his offensive line coach and then offensive coordinator.

The 6-4, 308-pound Colledge started Super Bowl XLV for Green Bay in their 31-25 win over the Steelers and was a four-year starter at Boise State prior to his pro career.

"We are happy to reach an agreement with Daryn Colledge," Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said in a release. "Daryn is a proven player who brings a tremendous amount of experience and versatility to the organization. He is a welcome addition to our offensive line room."
