Center Jake Grove reached an agreement on a five-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, according to a source close to the negotiations. Financial terms of the deal were not available. The Grove agreement marks the fourth significant move the Dolphins have made on the offensive line since Bill Parcells took over as vice president of football operations at the end of the 2007 season.
Aside from Grove, the team signed guard Justin Smiley in free agency; drafted Jake Long with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft; and re-signed right tackle Vernon Carey to a six-year, $42 million contract this offseason.
Grove, a second-round pick of the Raiders in 2004, spent the previous five seasons with Oakland.
