Tackle Willis signs with Dolphins

Veteran tackle Ray Willis has signed with the Miami Dolphins

after missing last season because of a knee injury.

Willis was a disappointment with the Seattle Seahawks, who took

him in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. He started 26 games for

the Seahawks, including all 16 in 2009.

The 6-6, 304-pound Willis reinforces depth at tackle, where Jake

Long and newcomer Marc Colombo are the projected starters. The

Dolphins waived tackle Micah Kia on Saturday.
