Dolphins agreed to terms with DE Charles Grant on a two-year contract.
Grant, 32, lands in a 3-4 defense for the first time of his career. At about 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, he has plenty of size to play in the scheme. The contract, however, likely isn't guaranteed. Look for Grant to battle Marques Douglas for one roster spot in an attempt to "replace" Phillip Merling.


i'd prefer A Thomas....

Ireland and the Dolphins signed their third defensive lineman in five days late Monday night, agreeing to a two-year, $4.5 million contract with nine-year veteran Charles Grant, according to NFL.com. An e-mail from Grant’s agent seeking confirmation was not immediately returned Monday night.

Grant, a 2002 first-round pick, played his first eight years with the New Orleans Saints, though he did not play in last February’s Super Bowl because of injury. He has 47 career sacks, including 5.5 last year, with 16 career forced fumbles. Grant started all 16 games last year before suffering a season-ending triceps injury in the 2009 season finale. The Saints cut him on March 5, and he had been selected by the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL.


The Saints deemed him expendable after signing Alex Brown and re-signing Bobby McCray this offseason. Grant, 31, also has a four-game suspension looming over his head stemming from a positive drug test in 2008. His suspension was put on hiatus while two players from the Minnesota Vikings filed a lawsuit against the producer of a supplement which caused the positive tests.

The Dolphins also signed nose tackle Montavious Stanley and defensive end Marques Douglas in the past five days, following the retirement of Jason Ferguson and season-ending injury suffered by Phillip Merling.

Grant will compete with Ryan Baker, Tony McDaniel, Lionel Dotson and Ikaika Alama-Francis for a roster spot.

No No No No No No...

I live near New Orleans and all I ever hear from the fans is how glad they are to be rid of him. I'll be getting teased on the way to work tomorrow. :/

Interesting. I was thinking about this scenario a few days ago, but didn't really think it was a possibility. Not sure how Grant fits in a 34 D...I guess against the Patriots in nickel type situations he could be a good DE, because not only does he have some pass rush ability but with that body he'd be good to counter NE's draw's out of the shot gun and such?

Just speculating. I don't really get this move.

True dat. I think we are looking for run support right now. Grant was a starter for a good Saints team, so, I like this signing. Age and coming off an injury is a big concern though.

Charles Grant is a good ballplayer. This guy is a true athlete. If this works out it will be really good.

BTW, JT can take a hike. I hope they never put that crybaby traitor in the Dolphin ring of honor.

Just another body that was a defensive starter with a Super Bowl ring. Show that ring off, Charles. Get us hungry for one.

Ya, I'd like to take a look at Thomas too....I would love to have his hatred of the Patsies on the team....

And i don't think he is washed up at all...He just wouldn't fall in line with that scumbag Bellicheat...And he is not the 1st

I like this pick up. I think if he can have a good recovery from his injuries he can make the team and contribute. As Dave said he was a starter for a darn good Saints team.

Addition of Marques Douglas, Charlies Grant & Montavious Stanley brings the Dolphins 22 seasons of experience, 203 starts & 69 sacks.
