Dolphins Host free agent OLB Rashad Jeanty

The Dolphins have signed guard Richie Incognito, and now are moving on to other holes that they are looking to fill this off-season.

The Dolphins are reportedly hosting outside linebacker Rashad Jeanty down in Miami this week.

Jeanty is from Miami, and would provide some depth at the linebacker position, only weeks after the Dolphins released linebackers Akin Ayodele, and Joey Porter, and have yet to re-sign Jason Taylor.

Jeanty played on the weak side for the Cincinnati , where Porter played for us last year. While Cameron Wake is heavily expected to win that job for next year, the Dolphins are also rumored to be looking to fill the other linebacker spot by using one of their high draft picks, this move is looking to be like the Eric Green signing last year, purely competition, that may add some depth during the season.

Jeanty is a versatile player, who can play special teams, and play them well. The Dolphins lost one of their best special teams players in Nathan Jones this off-season when he signed on with the Denver Broncos, so Jeanty coming in and filling that void would be a double bonus for the Fins.
