Daryn Colledge signed a one-year contract after a workout Monday, reuniting the offensive lineman with Joe Philbin. The Dolphins head coach was an offensive line coach and offensive coordinator during Colledge's five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, where they won a Super Bowl in 2011.

Colledge, a second-round draft pick in 2006 who has played in 128 straight regular-season games, spent the past three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.

"I think relieved and excited are the overwhelming emotions,'' said Colledge, 32, who had been a free agent. "It's time to go back to work and get this thing going.''

He declined to disclose financial terms.

"I'm happy with the deal and I have a chance to contribute right away, and that's what made it exciting,'' he said.

Colledge has played guard in the NFL, but could be used at center, where the Dolphins have lost Pro Bowler Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) for the start of the season. Miami General Manager Dennis Hickey said Colledge is "a proven player who brings a tremendous amount of experience and versatility to the organization.''

Miami starts training camp later this month in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
