The Miami Dolphins have signed offensive tackle Steven Baker, according to National Football Post reporter Aaron Wilson. Baker joins a Dolphins team looking to solidify an entirely new offensive line, compared to the line the team used last year.

Baker was most recently with the New York Giants, where he spent the 2013 season bouncing on and off the team's practice squad.  Prior to that, he was briefly in the Kansas City Chiefs training camp prior to the 2013 season.  He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, signing with the Indianapolis Colts in 2012.  After being released at the end of that year's training camp, Baker spent the 2012 season on the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad.

Baker, a 6-foot, 8-inch, 310-pound product from East Carolina, is seen as a right tackle at the NFL level.  His top need was to continue to develop strength, especially for a player of his size.

He was cut by the Giants on June 19, 2014.

No associated roster move has been disclosed to keep the Dolphins under the 90-man roster limit.
