Orchard looks to be trying to resurrect/jumpstart his career. He's only 26, so, this could be a nice opportunity for him to show some of that potential that he had at Utah.

Seeking a veteran edge rusher, the Dolphins are expected to add defensive end Nate Orchard after he impressed the team in a workout on Wednesday. His signing is imminent, according to a source.

The Dolphins brought in several veteran edge players, including linebacker Connor Barwin and some young prospects for workouts on Wednesday.

Barwin has been mulling various options, and the Dolphins ultimately decided to offer Orchard, who has five sacks in 38 NFL games for Cleveland, Buffalo and Kansas City.

Orchard, 26, was drafted in the second round, 51st overall, by Cleveland in 2015 after a senior season at Utah in which he had 18.5 sacks, was named All Pac-10 and won the Ted Hendricks Award for the top college defensive end.

His career numbers: five sacks, 69 tackles, nine tackles for loss, five passes defended, one interception, one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles in 38 games.

The Dolphins also had explored several other edge rushers in recent weeks, including former Green Bay defensive end Nick Perry and ex-Tennessee defensive end Derrick Morgan.

The Dolphins now have more than a dozen candidates to play substantial snaps at defensive tackle, defensive end and outside linebacker.
