Colledge signs new deal with Miami Dolphins

July 2, 2014

Daryn ColledgeIf the Miami Dolphins wanted to clean up the image of its offensive line, they scored a touchdown with veteran guard Daryn Colledge of North Pole.

The ninth-year blocker is steady as a rock, playing in all 128 games of his NFL career. His streak of playing in consecutive games dates back to his days at Boise State University, so he’s as tough as he is durable.

Colledge is also a class act: funny, professional, humble.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder had spent the past three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. Before that he spent five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, where he won a Super Bowl title and played for current Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin.

Colledge’s 128-game consecutive games streak is the longest among NFL guards.

The 32-year-old should stabilize a young offensive line for Miami, which revamped its O-line with fresh faces after dumping a couple troubled players who had several off-the-field problems last season. Colledge will help bring things back to normal.
