FOWLER: Dolphins sign veteran offensive tackle Brandon Shell

Shell will start on the team’s practice squad to get acclimated to the system but may be needed sooner rather than later

Shortly after I finished my article about Mike McDaniel’s comments on the injuries to starting tackles Austin Jackson and Terron Armstead, the Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with veteran offensive tackle Brandon Shell.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler was the first to report the signing.

The six-year veteran spent his first four seasons with the New York Jets, where he started 40 out of 49 games with the team. Shell started 21 games for the Seahawks in his two seasons, appearing in the first ten games last season before suffering a should injury that sent him to the injured reserve. FWIW, most of his reps have come at right tackle.

Shell will start on the Dolphins’ practice squad but may be forced into action quicker than expected.

As for an update on the injuries to Austin Jackson and Terron Armstead, NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe is reporting that neither tackle was spotted at the portion of practice open to the media.

What are your thoughts on the Miami Dolphins' offensive line? Does this change how you view Sunday’s matchup vs. the New England Patriots? What about the outlook for the remainder of the season? Let us know in the comments section below!
