Miami’s free agent spending spree has slowed down, but it hasn’t stopped: The Dolphins announced today that they have signed free agent guard Lance Louis.

Louis isn’t as sexy a signing as Mike Wallace or Dannell Ellerbe, but if he’s healthy he’ll be a solid addition to the offensive line who started the first 11 games of the season for the Bears last year before suffering a torn ACL in Week 12.

The 27-year-old Louis was a seventh-round draft pick of the Bears in 2009 and has been a starter for the last two seasons. He joins a Dolphins offensive line that returns both of last year’s starting guards, Richie Incognito and John Jerry.
