Dolphins Sign C/G Cory Procter

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports the Miami Dolphins have signed free agent center/guard Cory Procter.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Originally signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Montana, the Cowboys signed Procter off the Lions' practice squad in 2005. Procter made his NFL debut in 2007, and has started 13 of 44 games for the Cowboys over the last three seasons.

A restricted free agent tendered by the Cowboys at the "Second Round" level this off-season, Procter was set to earn $1.759 million dollars in base salary prior to his release last Monday. Upon his release, Procter paid free agents last week to the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, and Dolphins.

By signing with the Dolphins, Procter reunites with Tony Sparano, his former line coach with the Cowboys, who is now the Dolphins' head coach. Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland was the Cowboys' Director of College and Pro Scouting when they signed Procter off the Lions' practice squad, and Dolphins president Bill Parcells was the Cowboys' head coach in 2007.

With Miami in the process of trading guard Justin Smiley to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Procter adds veteran depth along the interior of the Dolphins' offensive line, and could push Joe Berger and Jake Grove for the starting center job.
