Well, they signed a 2016 free agent rookie who can put pressure on the QB, but is below average in run support and in pass coverage. He is a young player, and his arrow is still on the "up" and worth taking a look at.

The Miami Dolphins are working to fortify a linebacker unit that has been thinned out by injuries suffered during the first three weeks of training camp.https://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/mia ... story.html
On Sunday, the Dolphins signed veteran linebacker Terrance Smith, who played in 31 games and started three for the Kansas City Chiefs the past three seasons.
To make room for Smith, Miami waived defensive end Jonathan Woodard injured, which means he’ll either receive an injury settlement or be placed on Miami’s injured reserve.
Woodard, who played in six games for the Dolphins last season, began training camp as a first-teamer, but has been sidelined by an undisclosed injury the past two weeks.
The emergence of Tank Carradine, who had replaced Woodard as starter and was one of Miami’s top performers in Thursday night’s preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons, and the recent signing of Robert Nkemdiche, who is on Miami’s physically unable to perform list, eases the loss of Woodard.
