    The 6-8 tackle started all 16 games for the Miami Dolphins last season and has played in 130 games during his nine-year career at left tackle, right tackle and right guard.

    "We had the opportunity to add an experienced, good player to the mix at offensive tackle," general manager A.J. Smith said. "L.J. has played both left and right tackle during his career. We were thin at the position and we were determined to find a talented player. We believe we've addressed the need with L.J. Shelton."

    Shelton was a first round pick for the Arizona Cardinals in 1999 where he spent the first six seasons of his career. The 32-year-old played for the Cleveland Browns in 2005 and for Miami each of the last two campaigns.
