by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton (shoulder) is among a host of Dolphins who could be cut during the offseason, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

A turbulent offseason is expected in Miami, with a host of new front office changes prompting a roster overhaul for a team that finished the 2018 with a 7-9 record.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton (shoulder) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Dolphins' Josh Sitton: Signing with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton intends to sign a two-year deal with the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Sitton played in Chicago the last two-years and the team declined his third-year option. Now in Miami, Sitton will likely take over as one of the team's starting guards looking to protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee), who will be returning from an ACL injury.

Josh Sitton: Chicago declines team option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears declined Sitton's $8 million team option for the 2018 season on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report.

The $8 million salary was more than reasonable for Sitton, who graded out as the sixth-best guard in the NFL among qualifiers last season, per Pro Football Focus. The Bears' decision to cut the 31-year-old was likely motivated by a desire to get younger along the offensive line while freeing up cap space to address other positions of need. Given that he's still playing at a high level, Sitton shouldn't have trouble garnering a multi-year commitment from another team when he becomes a free agent in March.

Bears' Josh Sitton: Uncertain to remain in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton isn't certain to remain with the Bears in 2018, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sitton fared well in both pass protection and run blocking in 2017, ultimately grading out as Pro Football Focus' sixth-ranked offensive guard. However, he has a team option in his contract that would allow the Bears to save $8 million if they release him prior to Feb. 9. With a new head coach coming to Chicago, it wouldn't be surprising if the Bears moved on from the pricey 32-year-old.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 31-year-old was unable to practice in any capacity this week after injuring his ankle in the Week 15 loss to the Lions.

Sitton suffered the injury in Week 2 and was subsequently sidelined for Sunday's victory over the Steelers.

Look for Hroniss Grasu (hand) or Tom Compton to fill in at guard should Sitton sit.
