Dolphins C Mike Pouncey said there is "a lot of talent" on Miami's offensive line.
After adding Laremy Tunsil, the Dolphins now have four first-round picks on the line. "I would have never believed that, but I’m looking forward to it," Pouncey said. "We spent a lot of money on this offensive line, so it better be [good]." Pouncey, Tunsil, LT Branden Albert and RT Ja'Wuan James all boast first-round pedigrees. If Tunsil is able to get comfortable at guard and all four stay healthy, the Dolphins should have a stronger offensive line this season. May 30 - 11:42 AM

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) said he's 100 percent healthy.

Pouncey underwent hip surgery after the season, but it sounds like it was minor. He's also recovering from foot surgery after injuring it in Week 15. Keeping Pouncey healthy is key for the Dolphins' makeshift interior line situation.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey confirmed he had hip surgery right after the season ended.

The surgery was in addition to an operation to repair the foot injury which kept him out of the season finale. Pouncey has had issues with his hip in the past, but he said this surgery was not to the same hip he had repaired in 2014. Despite the two operations, Pouncey plans to be ready for OTAs.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey underwent foot surgery after the season.

He said Monday that his recovery is "going well." Pouncey missed Week 17 with the injury. The 26-year-old finished 2015 as PFF's No. 10-rated center. Pouncey may miss OTAs, but should be all systems go well ahead of training camp.

Dolphins declared C Mike Pouncey, LB Jelani Jenkins, DT Earl Mitchell, RT Ja'Wuan James, CB Jamar Taylor, QB Logan Thomas and OG Shelley Smith inactive for Week 17 against the Patriots.

Pouncey suffered what was reported as a season-ending foot injury Week 15, but the Dolphins carried him on the roster the final two weeks anyway. With Pouncey and James out, Ryan Tannehill will be running for his life against one of the best front sevens in the NFL.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey is done for the season after suffering a foot injury Week 15 against the Chargers.

Pouncey left the stadium with his left foot in a boot. LT Branden Albert suffered a knee injury against San Diego, but he is expected to be "fine." Rookie G Jamil Douglas took over at center after Pouncey left, but Miami will likely add help for the final two weeks. This season cannot end quickly enough for the Dolphins.

Updating a previous item, Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's five-year extension is worth $45 million.

The deal makes Pouncey the NFL's highest paid center, bypassing Raiders C Rodney Hudson. Pouncey got $22 million guaranteed with a $5 million signing bonus. With Pouncey's $7.438 million 2015 salary added to his $45 million extension, he's now signed through 2020 at a total value of $52.438 million over six years. A two-time Pro Bowler (2013, 2014), Pouncey turns 26 this July.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's contract extension is worth $52.15 million over five years with $22 million guaranteed and an $11 million signing bonus.

The contract makes Pouncey the league's highest-paid center. Pouncey struggled at right guard last season after missing the first four games recovering from offseason hip surgery. He had been one of the better centers in the league through his first three years, however, and is just entering his age-26 season. Pouncey still has room to grow, and should be a foundational piece of the Dolphins' line for years to come.

Dolphins signed C Mike Pouncey to a contract extension.

The deal is expected to make Pouncey the league's highest paid center. Despite coming off a down year, Pouncey is a building block for Miami's offensive line. He's still just 25 and has Pro Bowl appearances in two of his first four seasons. With Pouncey locked up, the Dolphins could turn their attention to an extension for Ryan Tannehill.
