A year after the Miami Dolphins drafted kicker Caleb Sturgis out of Florida, the team could already be looking to replace him with another SEC kicker.  According to the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson, the Dolphins will workout Brandon Bogotay on Sunday.

While at Georgia, Bogotay primarily handled kickoff duties, while now Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl kicker Blair Walsh kicked field goals.  He spent last year's training camp with the Cleveland Browns.  He went undrafted in 2012.

In his first year with the Dolphins, Sturgis unseated veteran kicker Dan Carpenter.  The rookie only connected on 76.5-percent of his field goals, going 26-for-33 on the year, which was 29th in the league.  His 111 points were 22nd in the league.

If the Dolphins were to sign Bogotay, it could be as competition for Sturgis, or it could simply be a move to add another leg to the team through training camp and the preseason.

Miami has Sunday off before they return to training camp ahead of Friday's contest against the Atlanta Falcons.
