The Dolphins have agreed to contract terms with guard Josh Sitton, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, according to ESPN.
Sitton, a 31-year-old, 10-year veteran who has played left guard and right guard for Green Bay and Chicago, played left guard for the Bears last year.
Sitton is regarded as a skilled pass blocker. He missed the final three games with the Bears last season, the last two due to an ankle injury, but has been fairly durable over his career. From 2009-15 he only missed two games.
Sitton would join four returning starters – left tackle Laremy Tunsil, right tackle Ja'Wuan James, left guard Ted Larsen and right guard Jesse Davis – on the offensive line.
The Dolphins traded for 49ers center Daniel Kilgore to replace Mike Pouncey, who was released Thursday. Kilgore was acquired, along with a 2018 seventh-round pick (227th overall), in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick (223rd overall).
Sitton spent the last two years with Chicago after spending his first four seasons with Green Bay. He made the Pro Bowl after the 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016 seasons.
The Dolphins brought Sitton in for a free-agent visit Thursday, and his acquisition would represent a measure of success for Miami as it tries to recover from high-profile losses such as Pouncey, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
