The Dolphins signed quarterback Kevin O'Connell on Friday, but that doesn't mean they've stopped looking for help at the position. That's why they have worked another veteran at the position. The team also helped the offensive line by signing veteran tackle Ray Willis.
The quarterback who got a tryout, according to Scout.com NFL writer Aaron Wilson, is former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. He began his NFL career with Baltimore and played last year with San Francisco.
As for Willis, he spent the last six seasons with the Seahawks after being a fourth-round pick in 2005. He has played in 44 career games, with 26 starts.
Willis could provide backup help at right tackle or even challenge newcomer Marc Colombo for the starting job.
