Mike Pouncey's option picked up

The Miami Dolphins exercised the fifth-year option on Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey's contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Pouncey was drafted 15th overall by the Dolphins in 2011 and has since started 46 games.

Pouncey, a 2014 Pro Bowl selection, was named in Ted Wells' report on the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal. According to the report, Pouncey, Incognito and John Jerry bullied former teammate Martin.
