It didn’t take Mike Pouncey long to find a new home.

Four days after he asked for his release from the Dolphins after rejecting a pay cut, Pouncey, a center, signed with the Los Angeles Chargers for $15 million over two years, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Pouncey didn’t take any other visits.

Pouncey, a three-time Pro Bowl selection in Miami and ex-Gator, is expected to provide veteran leadership to the young guard tandem of Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney.

He also will be counted on to give Philip Rivers more time to survey the field rather than having to unload passes to avoid sacks.

Meanwhile, another Dolphins lineman released last week, Ndamukong Suh, is continuing his free-agent tour. He already has visited with the Saints and Titans. Next on his agenda is the Rams, meaning he could end up in Los Angeles with Pouncey.

If Suh were to join the rising Rams, he’d be teaming on the defensive line with Aaron Donald.
