With Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey expected to miss time this season after a reported surgery on his hip, the Dolphins are looking at all their options in regards to finding a replacement. They will look to the players currently on the roster, but not exclusively per some recent reports.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Miami Dolphins have set up meetings with free agent guard Daryn Colledge, and former Dolphins, Raiders, and Colts center Samson Satele.

Colledge, 32, is an eight-year NFL veteran who has played in 128 games, starting 124 of them. He played his first five seasons with the Green Bay Packers under the tutelage of current Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin, and then spent the past three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. Colledge played guard for the Cardinals last year, but has played all three offensive line positions during his career.
Satele, 29, was originally selected by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2007 NFL draft. He spent two seasons with Miami before being traded to the Raiders in 2009. After three seasons in Oakland, he has spent the past two campaigns with the Indianapolis Colts. Through seven seasons, Satele has played in 102 games, starting 98.
6/30- Update: Also, according to Jackson, Steve Vallos, a veteran center who has played in 59 NFL games during stops in Seattle, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Philadelphia and most recently, Denver, will also visit the team.
