DAVIE, Fla. ( – While top young talent like tight end Zach Miller aren’t being called, the Miami Dolphins have decided to give another team’s trash a new contract.

The Dolphins have signed veteran offensive tackle Marc Colombo to a deal Monday. Colombo started in Dallas since 2006, but he was released after the Cowboys signed first-round draft pick Tyron Smith.

Colombo, who stands 6’8” and weighs 320 pounds, could be a bad sign for Dolphins right tackle Vernon Carey. Colombo, who is 32, comes at a much cheaper cap cost than Carey, who is set to cost around $7 million against the salary cap.

Colombo is a familiar face to Dolphins coach Tony Sparano and general manager Jeff Ireland, who both worked with him during their time in Dallas.
