Former Chargers LB Kevin Burnett Signs with the Dolphins

The Dolphins moved quickly on Friday to fill the hole left from the release of Channing Crowder, as reports say the team has inked former Chargers LB Kevin Burnett.

According to Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald, the team has agreed to a five-year deal with Burnett. San Diego Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acee says the deal is worth $10 million.

Last season Burnett started all 16 games, putting up 95 tackles, six sacks, five passes defensed and two interceptions in 2010. Crowder was one of the teams better run stoppers, and Burnett will be called upon to fill that role, and also they will look at him to put pressure on opposing QB’s.
