Dolphins sign UDFA offensive tackle SirVincent Rogers

The Dolphins have signed their sixth undrafted free agent, inking Houston offensive tackle SirVincent Rogers to a contract.

A Conference USA All-Freshman selection in 2004, Rogers started at tackle for the Cougars until midway through the 2006 season, when a knee injury forced him out of action for the rest of the year. The same injury would keep him out of the 2007 season as well.

I'm assuming he resumed starting as a fifth-year senior in 2008, but who really knows because that information was essentially impossible to find.

At Houston's Pro Day in 2009, Rogers measured in at 6'5" and 306 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.34 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.75 second, and the three-cone drill in 7.39 seconds. He posted a29" vertical and an 8'7" broad jump.

Rogers has his work cut out for him to make the team, as he'll have to beat out second-year man Nate Garner and 2009 seventh-rounder Andrew Gardner, among others, for a backup tackle gig. Offensive tackle is one of the thinnest spots on the team depth-wise, however, so it's not inconceivable.
