Dolphins Sign OL Mike Matthews

The Dolphins have added some depth to their offensive line. The Dolphins announced yesterday that they’ve signed center Mike Matthews.

The 6-foot-2, 290-pound lineman will participate in the team’s offseason program, and he could end up sticking around for training camp later this summer. The 24-year-old will be looking to finally earn an opening-day roster spot, as he’s bounced around the NFL since going undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016. He had a brief stint with the Browns, and he spent the entire 2017 campaign with the Steelers. However, Matthews never saw the field for Pittsburgh, as a torn patellar tendon ended his season early.

The center is looking to follow in the footsteps of his family. His father, Bruce Matthews, is a Hall of Famer, while his brother, Jake Matthews, was a first-round pick by the Falcons in 2014. He’s also the cousin of Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews.

Of course, this Matthews will have a tough time making the Dolphins’ roster. He’ll presumably compete with Jake Brendel to be Daniel Kilgore‘s backup.

    Wow, he’s wearing a Browns jersey in the picture, but no mention of Clay Matthews Sr?
