Strange will all the rumors floating around that we actually sign someone named "Tank".
He's a former 2nd round draft bust. He looks good in the offseason, but he cannot win the starting position. He's a good fit in either the 3-4 or 4-3 defensive scheme that we'll be implementing. I think he'll be fine in the rotation and be a decent replacement for Branch. He's nothing special, but I like the signing.

The Dolphins began reshaping defensive end on Friday, signing veteran Tank Carradine. And that will be the first of a bunch of expected moves at that position.
Carradine, 28, played four seasons (2014-17) with San Francisco and one (2018) with Oakland and has appeared in 45 career games with eight starts. He has 77 tackles (55 solo), 5.5 sacks and one forced fumble in his career.
During his NFL career, he has played defensive end in both a 4-3 and 3-4 and also worked for a year as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
Carradine, who is 6-4 and 270 pounds, originally entered the NFL as a second-round pick (40th overall) by San Francisco in the 2013 NFL Draft. He played at FSU, where he earned first-team All-ACC honors in 2012.
He appeared in only one game in the league last season, a Sept. 16 game for the Raiders, when he had one tackle against Denver. Unhappy about lack of playing time, he requested and was granted his release by the Raiders on Oct. 6 and never caught on with another team. Carradine had started training camp as the first-team base defensive end, but was surpassed by veteran Frostee Rucker.
