Shelley Smith signs with Dolphins

Chris Graythen

The Miami Dolphins have added free agent guard Shelley Smith, according to a report. Miami is working to overhaul their offensive line this offseason.

The Miami Dolphins and former St. Louis Rams guard Shelley Smith have agreed to a two-year contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  The move makes the second free agent signing, and second former Rams player, to join the team today.  Miami signed cornerback Cortland Finnegan earlier today.

Smith was drafted in the sixth round by the Houston Texans in 2010, spending three season with the team, but missed the entire 2011 season due to injury.  He was waived at the start of the 2012 season, and was claimed by the Rams.  In 2013, Smith started two games, appearing in 14, for St. Louis, and has played both left and right guard.

The Dolphins are rebuilding their offensive line this offseason, after allowing a franchise record 58 sacks in 2013.  They have also signed left tackle Branden Albert, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, in that effort.  Miami is expected to have four new starting offensive linemen next year, joining incumbent center Mike Pouncey.
