DAVIE — The Miami Dolphins have signed offensive tackle Sam Young to a one-year extension, according to an NFL source. Young’s one-year extension is worth $1.15 million with $325,000 in guarantees.

Young, 6-feet-8, 315 pounds, has played in seven games for Miami this season, with one start, after not making the team out of training camp.

Young was added to the team when Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas were cut on a day which sent a message to the Dolphins and helped spur a turnaround.

Coach Adam Gase has trusted Young, especially as a sixth offensive lineman this season. Young played 15 snaps in that role at Buffalo and 14 snaps in that role at the Jets.

Young, 29, has played in 65 games over seven NFL seasons, including time with the Cowboys, Bills and Jaguars.

Young is a native of Coral Springs.
