With the holidays here, it's been tough to find time to get a post up, but on Tuesday the Dolphins signed veteran LB Derek Smith.
To make room for him on the roster, WR Chris Hannon was released.
This move is likely another precaution against Channing Crowder being unavailable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Smith (6'2", 240 lbs.) is a 12-year veteran. He was released by the Chargers this year on November 12. He played in five games in San Diego, tallying 13 tackles.
This is a prudent move because, quite frankly, I was unimpressed with Akin Ayodele's transition to Crowder's spot in the defense, and underwhelmed by Reggie Torbor's transition to Ayodele's spot. Crowder will probably be listed as questionable for the game, and if he can't go, it will be good to at least have some depth at inside linebacker. Smith is a proven veteran, so he should be able to handle a limited role if forced into one.
