Four-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton followed this winter's well-worn path from the Chicago Bears to the Miami Dolphins Authentic Erik Karlsson Jersey , and that's not by accident.

After signing a two-year free agent contract with Miami that could be worth nearly $18 million including incentives, Sitton said he was drawn to the Dolphins by the recent hirings of assistant coaches Dowell Loggains and Jeremiah Washburn.

Both were with the Bears last year. Loggains is Miami's new offensive coordinator.

"We've had a pretty good little friendship over the past couple of years," Sitton said Friday. "I love his style of coaching. I love his offense. I love the system that they run. Coach Washburn as well 鈥?he's one of my favorite coaches that I've had in my career. They definitely played a big part in it."

Washburn is coach Adam Gase's new offensive line coach, meaning he'll oversee a makeover up front. On Wednesday, the Dolphins released three-time Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey and acquired center Daniel Kilgore in a trade with San Francisco.

Last month Kilgore signed an $11.78 million, three-year contract extension with the 49ers, but became expendable when they signed free agent center Weston Richburg this week.

"I don't regret anything," Kilgore said. "A month ago when I signed the extension Cheap Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , I never dreamed about being in this position. I had the goal of starting and finishing my career there. But this is a new chapter for my family and me, and I think the change will be good."

The Dolphins' newest acquisitions also include free agent receivers Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson. They'll combine to replace Jarvis Landry, who was traded to Cleveland.

They join a corps of wideouts that includes holdovers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker.

"The way we're going to put the stretch on some defenses is going to be crazy," Wilson said. "Danny is a straight-up dog. He's very similar to me in the slot. He's going to work and win. When you can count on a guy like that, man, it's special."

Sitton also is upbeat about his new teammates, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who missed last season because of a knee injury.

"With Tannehill coming back and being healthy Broncos Isaac Yiadom Jersey , I think there are a lot of good parts to this team that are in place, and I think we can be really good," Sitton said. "I want to be somewhere I think we can win, and I think we can do that here."

The Jacksonville Jaguars unceremoniously dumped the longest-tenured player on their roster Tuesday, and he wasn't happy about it.

The Jaguars released veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis after 12 seasons to save $3.5 million in salary-cap space. The move came the same day Jacksonville parted ways with receiver Allen Hurns to save $7 million.

Both players are now free agents and can sign with any team that wants them.

Hurns' future had been in doubt since Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole emerged as big-play receivers late last season. Hurns really became expendable when the Jaguars signed two receivers last week, bringing back Marqise Lee and adding Donte Moncrief in free agency.

Lewis thought his spot was safe, even after Jacksonville signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul last week. The Jaguars picked up an option in Lewis' contract last month.

Lewis told The Associated Press he felt "disrespected" by the timing of the move. It came a week after free agency began.

"I wish they would have done it sooner," he said. "I think I deserved a little better than this."

The 33-year-old Lewis Tyquan Lewis Jersey Colts , a first-round draft pick in 2006, played in 170 games with Jacksonville. His 375 receptions and 4,502 yards receiving both rank third in team history. His 33 receiving touchdowns are second-most in franchise history, trailing only Jimmy Smith (67).

He said he hopes to continue playing and would prefer to stay closer to his home and daughter in Los Angeles. Lewis has ties to former Jaguars coach and current Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, and his college position coach, Jon Embree, is tight ends coach for the San Francisco 49ers. Also, former Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson now holds the same position with the Oakland Raiders.

"I've still got a few more years left in me Authentic Claude Giroux Jersey ," Lewis said. "Any team that gets me will get a guy who does everything the right way on and off the field and with 100 percent effort. That's all I did in Jacksonville. I always did what they asked me to do, which is why the way they let me go is annoying in that sense."

Hurns would have been behind Lee and Moncrief on the depth chart, and Jacksonville felt his salary was too high for a backup who has missed 11 games the last two seasons.

Hurns has 189 receptions for 2,669 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years since signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie from Miami. But he caught just 74 passes for 961 yards and five scores the last two years while dealing with a sports hernia in 2016 and a high ankle sprain in 2017.
