Miami Dolphins bringing back center Travis Swanson


The Miami Dolphins are signing center Travis Swanson, according to an NFL source.

Swanson, 6-foot-5, 304 pounds, was a former third round pick of the Detroit Lions. Swanson also spent time in training camp with the New York Jets this season.

The Dolphins happen to face the Jets Sunday in New Jersey.

Prior to the season opener against the Titans, the Dolphins signed quarterback Luke Falk, who had been with Tennessee in training camp.

The Titans had a change a few things up prior to kickoff.

The Dolphins’ backup center, Jake Brendel, had previously been placed on injured reserve due to a calf injury.

Guard Ted Larsen served as backup center in the opener.

Swanson, who had signed with Miami prior to the opener before being quickly cut for Brandon Bolden, played 53 games, with 42 starts, in Detroit.

Could Dolphins snapper John Denney miss his first game since — ever?

We may never know what the play was called, and perhaps it’s better that way, it sort of adds to the mystery, the suspense, the lore. It was a touchdown. And it was critical. And it involved Ryan Tannehill, Frank Gore, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant. And it was fun. And it was splendid. And it was thrilling. And it was the most important play...
