Dolphins to host guard Josh Sitton on visit, source says

The Sun Sentinel's Omar Kelly and Chris Perkins break down the Dolphins' first few moves made during free agency.

The Miami Dolphins are scheduled to host free-agent guard Josh Sitton on a visit Thursday, according to a league source.

Sitton, a Florida native who attended UCF, is a 31-year-old, 10-year veteran who would presumably be a starter for the Dolphins. Chicago declined to pick up the $8 million option on Sitton's contract.

The Dolphins return the men who ended the season as their starting guards — Ted Larsen on the left side and Jesse Davis on the right side.

It's unknown whether Miami wants to bring back right guard Jermon Bushrod, the starter on the right side the last two seasons until being sidelined with a foot injury late last season. Bushrod, who is entering his 12th season, said he won't retire and wants to play in 2018.

Sitton, who will be 32 in June, is a four-time Pro Bowl selection (2012, 2014-16), most recently making it after his first of two seasons with the Bears. Sitton, who spent his first eight seasons with Green Bay, has played both left and right guard.

The Dolphins return all five offensive line starters from last season — left tackle Laremy Tunsil, right tackle Ja'Wuan James, center Mike Pouncey and Larsen and Davis.
