He was an excellent center, but suffered with a lot of injuries. The positive is that he usually was able to play through those injuries, and the Dolphins rested him through the week as they are doing Armstead. Unfortunately, it is hard to get chemistry along the OL if they cannot practice with him all week.

It’s been three years since former Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey stepped on an NFL field, but after announcing his retirement in 2021, he’s officially retiring as a member of the Dolphins.https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2023/ ... etirement/
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s David Furones, Pouncey is set to sign a one-day contract with Miami on Thursday to retire with the franchise that brought him into the league.
The Dolphins drafted Pouncey with the 15th overall pick in the 2011 draft out of Florida. He spent seven seasons in Miami as the centerpiece of the offensive line. The former Gator made the Pro Bowl three times during his time with the Dolphins and did so once more as a member of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2018.
Season-ending neck and hip injuries in 2019 and 2020, respectively, essentially ended his career after 10 years.
