Saints signed OG Jermon Bushrod, formerly of the Dolphins, to a one-year contract.
This is a homecoming for Bushrod, who began his career as a fourth-round pick by the Saints in 2007. The one-time tackle struggled at guard during his two years in Miami, but he could prove to be valuable as a swing lineman in New Orleans. Mar 15 - 11:07 AM

Dolphins placed G/T Jermon Bushrod on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Bushrod started the first 10 games at right guard but hasn't played since Week 11 and was terrible even before getting hurt. Jesse Davis has since taken over the position. 33-year-old Bushrod will be a free agent in March.

Dolphins G Jermon Bushrod is questionable to return in Sunday's Week 11 game against the Buccaneers after suffering a foot injury.

Bushrod exited the game in the third quarter and tried to work the foot injury out on the sideline before heading back to the locker room. His return to the game is questionable.

Dolphins re-signed RG Jermon Bushrod.

Making the switch from tackle, Bushrod was one of the worst guards in the league last season. Right now, he pencils back in as the starter, but the Dolphins will be on the lookout for draft prospects and free agent bargains. Going on 33, Bushrod is unlikely to make a second-year leap at his new position.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are open to re-signing free agent G/T Jermon Bushrod.

2016 was Bushrod's first season at guard, and he was a complete flop. Going on 33, the odds he improves in 2017 are slim. If re-signed, Bushrod would likely compete with free agent addition Ted Larsen. A draft pick figures to be in the mix, as well.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins would like to try to upgrade impending free agent Jermon Bushrod at right guard.

That's probably an understatement. Bushrod was an outright disaster in his first season at guard, performing as one of the league's worst players by any metric. Going on 33, the Dolphins rightfully appear skeptical any improvement is on the horizon.

Impending free agent RG Jermon Bushrod said he wants to re-sign with the Dolphins.

Miami converted Bushrod from left tackle to right guard this past season. He started all 17 games, including the Wild Card loss to the Steelers, and graded out as Pro Football Focus' second-worst guard out of 77 qualifiers, struggling badly as a run blocker. The 32-year-old won't command much on the open market and should face competition if he returns to the Dolphins.

Jermon Bushrod and Laremy Tunsil are the Dolphins' starting guards for Thursday's regular season dress rehearsal.

Neither player has run with their job the way the Dolphins had hoped this summer, but both are firmly on track to start Week 1. Tunsil is probably a little more secure than Bushrod, who has been struggling to put away Billy Turner. Turner is a bad player.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins "remain hopeful" OL Jermon Bushrod will "become a factor" at right guard.

Billy Turner gobbled up the first-team reps during the offseason, but the Dolphins want converted-tackle Bushrod to win the job in camp. Bushrod was held out of spring practices as he recovered from shoulder surgery. Barring an August face-plant, Bushrod should beat out Turner, who was a major liability in 2015.

Dolphins T/G Jermon Bushrod (shoulder) participated in Monday's OTA practice.

Bushrod was likely limited coming off February shoulder surgery, but the return is a great sign for his availability for training camp. A former tackle, Bushrod is the favorite to start at right guard this season.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is confident Jermon Bushrod will provide versatility along the offensive line.

Gase is hoping the lifelong tackle can make the conversion to guard, where the Dolphins are embarrassingly unsettled. "The good thing with me being with Bushrod last year was I saw a guy that played five spots in practice," Gase said. "(He) gives us some flexibility, gives us some depth at a lot of different spots. We're going to give (Bushrod) a chance to compete and see how he fits in." The Dolphins are throwing Bushrod, Kraig Urbik, Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner and Jamil Douglas at the wall and hoping two of them stick at guard.

Newly-signed OL Jermon Bushrod (shoulder) said he is "up for" playing guard with the Dolphins.

The Dolphins' guard situation has been dire for several seasons, and they have done little thus far this offseason to address the position besides bringing in Bushrod, who has never played guard in his life. Bushrod had shoulder surgery in February and is expected to be out until at least June. That means he will have at most some of OTAs and training camp to learn a brand new position. Bushrod sounds confident, but the Dolphins need to do much more to fix the interior of their line.

Dolphins signed OT Jermon Bushrod, formerly of the Bears, to a one-year contract.

Teams were expected to wait on Bushrod because of his recent shoulder operation but his market developed much faster than anticipated. He's reuniting with former Bears OC Adam Gase, who benched him for Charles Leno halfway through last season. The Dolphins view him as a possible starter at guard.

Free agent OT Jermon Bushrod will visit the Dolphins.

He's coming off shoulder surgery, but that hasn't stopped teams from checking in on him. In new Dolphins coach Adam Gase's 2015 Bears offense, Bushrod was benched for Charles Leno. The Vikings are also said to be "monitoring" Bushrod. The Dolphins are likely looking at Bushrod as a swing tackle behind RT Ja'Wuan James and LT Branden Albert, who both struggled with injuries last season.

The Vikings are "monitoring" free agent OT Jermon Bushrod.

However, the sides have yet to schedule a visit, presumably because Bushrod is still early in his rehab from shoulder surgery. Bushrod is probably going to have to ride out the first wave of free agency without a deal.
