Miami Dolphins Release Center Jake Grove, Re-Sign Cory Procter

September 10, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Yet another high-profile free-agent signing by Bill Parcells and the Miami Dolphins has met an abrupt and unceremonious end, as the Dolphins terminated the contract of center Jake Grove today.

The oft-injured Grove played just one season for the Dolphins and started only 10 of 12 games after signing a five-year, $29 million contract that included $14.5 million guaranteed.

Grove's release comes soon after he missed the team's preseason finale with a shoulder injury and officially lost the starting center job for Sunday's regular season opener to Joe Berger.

To take Grove's spot on the roster, the Dolphins re-signed offensive lineman Cory Procter, who was with the team during the preseason and survived final cuts last Saturday, only to be released a day later.

An experienced interior lineman with 44 career games played and 13 starts, Procter will likely serve as the primary backup center to Berger in addition to being a reserve guard.
