The Dolphins on Monday traded guard Justin Smiley to the Jaguars. Hours after that news broke came word that the Dolphins had signed guard Cory Procter.
Procter could fill in at left guard -- Smiley's old spot -- in the short-term. He also plays center.
Procter made the rounds on the Bill Parcells/Bill Belichick coaching tree earlier this week. He visited the Broncos (Josh McDaniels), Patriots (Belichick) and then the Dolphins.
He was previously on the Lions practice squad before he was plucked by the Cowboys, who happened to be coached by Bill Parcells at the time.
