The Miami Dolphins gave their offensive line a little extra help on Thursday by signing veteran guard Eric Steinbach, according to an article on the National Football Post via Aaron Nagler of Bleacher Report.

Steinbach was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. After playing through 2007 with the team, he signed with the Cleveland Browns. In 2008, he was selected to play in the Pro Bowl for the AFC. This signing reunites Steinbach with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, whom was Steinbach's offensive line coach at Iowa.
A veteran presence on the offensive line is always a good idea when you have a team with a lot of unknowns the way the Dolphins have. However, given that he has spent so much time playing the NFL right now, one has to wonder how effective he can still be.
