Dolphins working out Rey Maualuga

Recommended Posts

Wouldn't mind signing an experienced veteran like Maualuga after losing McMillan and Misi. We really do need the Linebacker help. He was a solid starter for the Bengals although he was always a bit of a disappointment from his draft hype. Think he could be a fit for us though.

Thoughts?

Dolphins have a meager $7.8m in cap space right now.

At this point I'd rather see what Hull brings to the table.

Maulaluga has had little interest in the open market. He isn't going to cost much at all.

He's a run-down only LB at this point. Only played around 32% of defensive snaps for Cincy last year, and just over 50% in 2015.

I mean at this point we need depth more than anything else.

He was signed today 1 year deal and is mainly known for his run defense which is what Miami needs. Burke had him when he was LB coach at Cincy so he knows what this guy can do.

Cap hit of less than 700k. Seems more than reasonable.

Rey can replace Hull in short yardage situations. Hull is a great coverage, all around MLB, but he lacks in run support. He just doesn't have the size to fight off O-lineman. With Rey in there, he can bring some thump to the middle of the defense.
