The Dolphins are signing offensive lineman Sam Young to a one-year extension, according to Pro Football Talk (on Twitter). Per the terms of the deal, he will make $1.2MM in 2017, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Young missed the 53-man cut towards the end of the offseason, but he circled back to Miami in October. Since then, he has demonstrated his value as a backup to Branden Albert and Ja’Wuan James this season, playing in six games and making one start.
The Dolphins have both Albert and James under contract for 2017, so their tackle corps looks solidified. The Dolphins also have tackle-turned-guard Laremy Tunsil in the long-term fold as well.
