Free agent C Samson Satele is visiting the Seahawks on Monday.
Satele struggled in 16 starts with the Dolphins last season, but he could at least offer veteran competition in Seattle's struggling offensive line. The Seahawks have started Drew Novak and Lemuel Jeanpierre at center in their first two preseason games. Mon, Aug 24, 2015 12:48:00 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak says free agent C Samson Satele is someone "we've talked about."

The Broncos have also monitored free agents Will Montgomery, Chris Myers and Scott Wells. Despite starting all 16 games for the Dolphins in 2014, Satele finished 31st out of 40 qualified centers in Pro Football Focus' year-end rankings. He received a slightly positive grade in run blocking but was brutal in pass protection. Matt Paradis and Shelley Smith could play center if the Broncos fail to land any of their free agent targets. Myers would be their best option.

The Bears are interested in free agent Samson Satele.

Satele started all 16 games for the Dolphins last season. His arrival could spell trouble for Roberto Garza, but one of GM Phil Emery's last acts before getting fired was signing Garza to a one-year extension.

The Chicago Tribune expects the Bears to have interest in free agent C Samson Satele.

Satele didn't sign until late in training camp last year, but ended up starting all 16 games for Miami. Chicago could use Satele as insurance behind 36-year-old Roberto Garza. Satele graded out as a bottom-ten center by PFF, but received positive marks in run blocking.

Dolphins signed C Samson Satele.

It's a long overdue signing. Satele fits Miami's offensive scheme and will help with their snap issues. The Dolphins are essentially giving up on converted guards Shelley Smith and Nate Garner. 29-year-old Satele is the favorite to start at center Week 1 and should hold on to the job until Mike Pouncey returns.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are still keeping an eye on free agent C Samson Satele.

The Dolphins are trying to convert G Shelley Smith into a center. He's never snapped in his NFL career and is struggling at training camp with bad snaps. Satele is by no means a world beater at the center spot, but he's a veteran and knows protections and can make line calls. Smith is a better fit at guard.

The Dolphins will work out free agent C Samson Satele on Monday.

They'll probably sign whoever looks best between Satele and Daryn Colledge. Cut by the Colts in March after a miserable 2013 campaign, Satele was originally a Dolphins draft pick, back in 2007. He'd be a huge downgrade from Mike Pouncey, obviously, but Miami is in a bit of a desperate spot at center already.

Colts released C Samson Satele.

Satele was due $3.9 million in the final season of his three-year contract. The move frees up $1.733 million in cap space for the free-spending Colts. Going on 30, Satele was injury prone and ineffective his two years in Indy. Moving on from Satele is a necessary step as the Colts look to upgrade their dismal run blocking.

Colts C Samson Satele left Sunday night's Week 7 game with a knee injury.

Satele was cleared to return after briefly exiting in the first quarter. He attempted to play through the injury with a knee brace, but has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Colts C Samson Satele left Sunday's Week 14 game against the Titans with an ankle injury.

Satele and the entire Indy offensive line has been abused by the Tennessee defense. Andrew Luck is getting flushed out of the pocket on a regular basis and has been sacked multiple times. A.Q. Shipley started the third quarter at center.

Colts C Samson Satele (knee) was active for Sunday's win, but played zero snaps.

A.Q. Shipley got the start just six days after being promoted from the practice squad, strongly suggesting Satele was active on just an emergency basis. He remains day-to-day heading into Sunday's tilt against the Jets.

Colts C Samson Satele (knee) started Sunday's loss to the Jaguars but lasted just one half.

Satele was "doing more harm than good," according to coach Chuck Pagano. He chose to kick Mike McGlynn to center for the second half and brought in Trai Essex at right guard.
Mon, Sep 24, 2012 10:06:00 AM

An MRI of Colts C Samson Satele's left knee revealed only "soreness and stiffness."

It's excellent news for the Colts' banged-up line, though not a guarantee Satele will be ready for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. If he's not, RG Mike McGlynn will likely slide back over to center, leaving Trai Essex at right guard.
Mon, Sep 17, 2012 03:47:00 PM

Colts C Samson Satele was forced from Sunday's game against the Vikings with a left knee injury, and did not return.

Satele was deemed "questionable" after departing midway through the first half, but never checked back in. It's awful news for a Colts team that was already without RT Winston Justice and LG Joe Reitz, though Satele appeared to be walking without much of a hitch. RG Mike McGlynn slid over to center in Satele's absence, leaving recently signed veteran Trai Essex at right guard. Satele was nursing a right knee injury heading into Week 2.
Sun, Sep 16, 2012 03:56:00 PM

According to the Associated Press, Colts C Samson Satele's new three-year contract is worth $10.8 million with $5 million guaranteed.

For a player arrested on disorderly conduct charges just days ago, Satele made out pretty well. GM Ryan Grigson made it clear Wednesday that Satele was "the man they wanted to anchor their new line," per the AP. A 27-year-old with 74 career starts, Satele replaces longtime C Jeff Saturday in Indianapolis.
