The Miami Dolphins have signed offensive lineman Daryn Colledge to a one-year deal, the team announced today.
“We are happy to reach an agreement with Daryn Colledge,” said Dolphins General Manager Dennis Hickey. “Daryn is a proven player who brings a tremendous amount of experience and versatility to the organization. He is a welcome addition to our offensive line room.”
The 6-4, 308-pound Colledge joins Miami after spending the past three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals (2011-13). Prior to Arizona, he played five seasons for the Green Bay Packers (2006-10), where he was coached by Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin, who was Green Bay’s offensive line coach (2006) and then offensive coordinator (2007-11).
Colledge has appeared in all 128 games in his eight-year career, with 124 starts. He also has started all seven postseason games he has appeared in, including the Packers Super Bowl XLV victory over Pittsburgh. His 128 consecutive games played are the most by any active guard in the NFL.
Colledge was a four-year starter and three-time All-WAC selection for Boise State, earning first-team honors in 2004 and 2005. He established the school record for consecutive games played and started (both 52). The school posted a 45-7 record during his four seasons as a starter, including a 31-1 conference mark en route to four-straight WAC championships. Born February 11, 1982 in North Pole, Alaska, Colledge attended North Pole High school where he was a first-team all-state selection.
