Dolphins release OG Josh Sitton

Recommended Posts

One year later he's back on the market. I remember after Norwell, he was the second biggest FA guard out there. He went on IR in week 1 though with a torn rotator cuff. 32 years old. Will anyone kick the tires?

Tough injury for an olinemen. I wouldnt mind the browns bringing him in as our 4th interior guy.

Poor Josh.  He never played as well for anyone else after GB let him go.  He's been thru the ringer with multiple injuries.  If he were smart he'd call it a career before he is a cripple.

Packers HoF only.

Sitton was very, very good for a long while, but not THE dominant OG of his era, and didn't change way game is played. Had his three 2nd team All-Pro titles been 1st team honors instead, then we'd have a discussion.

Hey Pugger. I just like sounding out your username in my head. But anyways, not just Josh Sitton but TJ Lang too should retire with injuries.

Do former NFL players have to actually buy a ticket to attend the festivities? That's just wrong and only ticket getting punched.

Yes, TJ should hang it up too.  Boy, when we had these guys along with our line in 2012 it was one of the best.  Let's hope we can rebuild it again around Bak.

Sitton made the Humor HOF
Sitton played RG for many years in GB and was then swapped to LG during one offseason

When the writer asked him how hard it was to switch sides, Sitton said: 

"Its like trying to wipe your arse with your opposite hand"

He was fantastic in Chicago, I don't know what you are talking about.  Other than missing a few games a season due to injury, he was great.  FWIW, he was ranked among the top interior OL both years he played in chicago, if I recall correctly.

Yeah and he looked great in pre-season plus that one game in Miami. Finally looked like we had an above average o-line and he was a big reason for that.
