The Miami Dolphins have re-signed veteran guard Jermon Bushrod.

Bushrod is a former Pro Bowl tackle who made a transition to right guard last season. At the age of 33, Bushrod may be making another transition to left guard next season.

Bushrod is steady presence in the locker room and for younger linemen like Laremy Tunsil, who is going to take over at left tackle next season.

Bushrod, 6-feet-5, 320 pounds, started all 16 regular-season games for Miami. Of course it’s still possible Miami could sign or draft another guard to compete with Bushrod for a starting spot.

After the season Bushrod implied that he would retire if not given another opportunity to play for Miami. This offseason, Miami also signed former Bears guard Ted Larsen.
