Although he has never been to a Pro Bowl, the 30-year-old started 57 games during his time in Buffalo and played both guard and tackle, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
The Dolphins have been addressing their offensive line needs in the offseason, and Urbik "isn't some camp body," according to Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald. Beasley wrote that the former Wisconsin Badger will "compete with Jermon Bushrod, Billy Turner, Dallas Thomas and Jamil Douglas for two starting jobs this summer."
Miami running backs gained a modest 4.3 yards per carry last season, but it was in the passing game where the line struggled, allowing the eighth-most sacks last year with 45.
SportsCenter anchor Kevin Connors joked that the Dolphins brass seems to be targeting Bills players in the offseason, perhaps referencing four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Mario Williams, a notable offseason addition:

I see the Dolphins have signed Kraig Urbik. Guess they're cornering the market on ex-#Bills. Years of us kicking their butts will do that.3/22/2016, 8:48:39 PM
Urbik could prove to be a good fit, as he brings reliability to a shaky Miami offensive line after playing in all 16 games the past three years after missing 12 games over his first three seasons.
