Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Vernon Carey changed his mind.Carey, who retired last year after the Dolphins didn't re-sign him following the 2011 season, announced Thursday that he's attempting a comeback, according to the Miami Herald. That's if anyone will have him. (photo: photo-gator, Flickr)A former first-round pick (2004) of Miami, Carey spent most of his career at tackle but posted up at guard in 2011. He's 31 years old and could get a look from teams in need of offensive line depth, but his days as an out-of-the-gate starter are likely over.The New York Jets reportedly gave him a call last year to help aide the reeling right side of their offensive front, but Carey opted to coach high school football instead.Carey graded out very well at tackle in 2008 by Pro Football Focus but declined in 2009 and 2010. He was average at guard in 2011.Follow Nick @NickStDenisFollow AFC East Daily @AFCEastDaily
