The Dolphins announced the signing of DL Lionel Dotson on Wednesday. The team also has signed LB Eric Walden and waived DE Clifton Geathers and LB Micah Johnson.
The 6-4, 290-pound Dotson was signed off the Broncos' practice squad. He had been with Miami during training camp, but was released on Sept. 4. Dotson was originally a seventh-round draft choice of the Dolphins in 2008. He had three tackles in four preseason games.
Walden was also with the Dolphins during camp but was let go Sept. 4. He recorded three tackles in four preseason games this year.
The way we see it
With rookie DE Jared Odrick sidelined this week, and probably longer, with a deep thigh bruise, Dotson can step in and provide depth because of his knowledge of the defense after working in it all summer.
