John Denney, the longest tenured Miami Dolphin, sailed through training camp in 2012 without any competition. But he’ll have to fend off at least one teammate this time around.
The Dolphins on Monday announced the signing of Patrick Scales, a first-year long snapper out of Utah State.
Scales, 6-3 and 248 pounds, was in camp with the Ravens last year before being released just before the start of the regular season.
Should Scales perform well in camp, he would likely be a cheaper option than Denney, who is set to earn $860,000 in base salary this year. Denney has been with the team since 2005.
