Dolphins rookie Satele signs four-year deal

MIAMI (July 19, 2007) -- Second-round draft choice Samson Satele signed a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, but the team's top two picks remained unsigned three days before the scheduled reporting date for rookies.

Satele, a 311-pound center from Hawaii, was taken with the second of Miami's two second-round picks in April.

Still unsigned were Ohio State receiver Ted Ginn Jr., the Dolphins' first-round choice, and quarterback John Beck of Brigham Young, a second-round pick.

Miami rookies are scheduled to report July 22 and begin practice July 24. Training camp for the entire team starts July 28.
