The Miami Dolphins signed free agent center Mike Matthews on Friday, according to several media outlets.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Matthews was undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016 and signed with the Cleveland Browns, but was released before the start of the regular season.

The 24-year-old Matthews signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers last year, but sustained a torn patellar tendon in training camp.

Matthews is the son of Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews and younger brother of Atlanta Falcons tackle Jake Matthews.

Daniel Kilgore, acquired in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers, is expected to be the Dolphins' starting center after they parted ways with longtime starter Mike Pouncey this offseason.

Matthews is expected to compete for playing time with Jake Brendel, who played in every game as a reserve for Miami last season.
