Veteran offensive tackle Marc Colombo has signed with the Miami Dolphins, who again tapped the Dallas Cowboys pipeline to acquire a player.

Colombo, a starter for Dallas since 2006, was released Thursday by the Cowboys. He became expendable after they signed top draft pick Tyron Smith.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano and general manager Jeff Ireland worked for the Cowboys before coming to Miami in 2008. They have frequently signed former Cowboys, including quarterback Matt Moore and linebacker Kevin Burnett last week.

Colombo is expected to challenge right tackle Vernon Carey for playing time. A 2002 first-round pick by the Chicago Bears, Colombo has 79 career starts.
