 MIAMI (AP) -Offensive lineman Steve McKinney, coming back from a knee injury that forced him to miss most of the 2007 season, signed a contract Monday to join the Miami Dolphins.
The deal was confirmed by the office of McKinney's agent, Tim Irwin.
The 6-foot-4, 302-pound McKinney was a starter in each of his first eight NFL seasons, but after he allowed 9 1/4 sacks in 2005 he became a part-time center for Houston. He tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the Texans' third game last year and missed the rest of the season.
On March 25 the Texans released McKinney, 32, who is still rehabilitating his knee. Once healthy, he's expected to compete for playing time at guard or as a backup to starting center Samson Satele.
The Dolphins waived guard Drew Mormino last week after he failed a physical. Following a 1-15 season in 2007, the Dolphins are revamping their offensive line under new head coach Tony Sparano, who was offensive line coach for the Dallas Cowboys.
The Dolphins said they were not yet ready to confirm McKinney's deal. He's the older brother of Seth McKinney, was played center and guard for the Dolphins in 2002-05.
