Vernon Carey (Miami)

After a collegiate career at Miami, Carey didn't go far and played eight seasons with the Dolphins. The two sides now appear ready to part ways.  Carey started 105 of the Dolphins' 112 regular-season games since the 2005 season. Formerly a right tackle, Carey, 30, was moved to right guard this past season and held up fine, although pass blocking was a struggle at times. Carey, a former first-round pick, played at Miami with Ravens safety <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT008421" title="Ed Reed" href="/topic/sports/football/ed-reed-PESPT008421.topic">Ed Reed</a>, who recommended to the front office last offseason to sign another one of their former Hurricanes teammates: left tackle <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT0014444" title="Bryant McKinnie" href="/topic/sports/football/bryant-mckinnie-PESPT0014444.topic">Bryant McKinnie</a>.
