Dolphins C Mike Pouncey was forced from Saturday's third preseason game with a knee injury.

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.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins are finalizing an extension with C Mike Pouncey.

The deal is expected to be in the range of Maurkice Pouncey's five-year, $44 million contract with the Steelers, with between $20-25M guaranteed. Miami wanted to extend Pouncey last offseason, but off-field concerns forced the Dolphins to pick up his 2015 option. Pouncey should be paid as one of the top centers in the league.
Apr 10 - 4:58 PM

Mike Pouncey will move back to center for the Dolphins in 2015.

Returning from offseason hip surgery, Pouncey volunteered to play right guard last season in order to let Samson Satele continue to handle the center spot. Miami has received extremely poor guard play in recent seasons, but Pouncey is going back to the pivot spot with Satele now a free agent. Pouncey should have a much better year at his natural position as one of the top centers in the league.

The Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to extend Mike Pouncey this offseason.

After offseason hip surgery, Pouncey returned to start 12 games at right guard last season, grading out negatively in both pass protection and run blocking. Pouncey, 25, remains a building block despite coming off a down year. With Samson Satele a free agent, Pouncey should move back to center in 2015.
Jan 31 - 7:49 PM

Mike Pouncey has informed the Dolphins he wants to return to center in 2015.

Pouncey has been selfless this season moving to right guard in order for the Dolphins to get their best five linemen on the field. Samson Satele has been playing center with Daryn Colledge at left guard. Satele and Colledge are on one-year deals. Shelley Smith was signed to a two-year, $5.5 million contract in March to play guard, but has been a flop and is expected to be released in the spring.

The attorney for Mike and Maurkice Pouncey says the brothers won't be charged after being accused of assaulting a man over the summer.

There was an altercation at a Miami nightclub in July at the twins' birthday bash. Mike was believed to be in the clear from the start, but there had been some rumblings the state had enough evidence against Maurkice to pursue misdemeanor charges. This should be the last we hear of the story.

Mike Pouncey would move to center if Samson Satele (hamstring) is unable to play in the Dolphins Week 7 matchup with the Bears.

The Dolphins line played well with Satele at center and Pouncey at guard last week, but the injury may force Miami to make a move. Shelley Smith would slot in at right guard if Satele cannot go.

Dolphins OL Mike Pouncey (hip) is active for Week 6, and starting at right guard.

Samson Satele will remain at center for the time being, sending fill-in guard Shelley Smith to the bench. Inactive for the Dolphins are WR Brandon Gibson, RB Daniel Thomas, DL Deandre Coleman, OG Shelly Smith, OT Jason Fox, OG Billy Turner and TE Gator Hoskins.

Dolphins C/G Mike Pouncey (hip) is expected back in Week 6 against Green Bay.

The Dolphins played their cards right with Pouncey, resting him in Week 4 and getting the win over Oakland, before using their Week 5 bye to ensure Pouncey returns at full health. Pouncey is tentatively expected to take over at right guard, upgrading on struggling Dallas Thomas. Miami's offensive line is suddenly looking formidable and has depth. They should get RG Shelley Smith (knee) back soon, which would allow Pouncey to upgrade on Samson Satele at center.

Dolphins C/G Mike Pouncey (hip) is expected to make his 2014 debut in Sunday's game against the Packers.

It's unclear if Pouncey will play guard or center. Pouncey has made it clear he's willing to shift to guard, which would leave Samson Satele in the middle. To date, all 46 of Pouncey's career appearances have come at center.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 03:34:00 PM

Dolphins C/G Mike Pouncey (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Samson Satele will get at least one more start at center, although Pouncey may return as the Dolphins' starting right guard, replacing struggling Dallas Thomas. The Fins will make that decision during their Week 5 bye.
