Source: Dolphins sign LB Guyton

The Miami Dolphins have signed former Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton to a one-year contract, a league source confirms.

Guyton, who worked out for the Dolphins earlier this week, played four seasons in New England after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2008.

In four seasons, Guyton played in 60 regular season games, making 32 starts, including all 16 games in 2009. This past season, Guyton had a season-high ten tackles against the Cowboys in Week 6, but by the end of the regular season was a healthy scratch for most contests. He did not play in any playoff games, and his re-signing was considered unlikely.

The Patriots now have six unrestricted free agents who remain unsigned: running back Kevin Faulk, defensive linemen Shaun Ellis and Gerard Warren, defensive end Andre Carter, defensive back Nate Jones, and safety James Ihedigbo.

Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel was the first to report Guyton's signing.
