New Linebacker

With Koa Misi and Austin Spitler both apparently nursing injuries, the Dolphins added some depth at linebacker on Monday by signing former Saints backup Marvin Mitchell.

The 6-3, 249-pound Mitchell spent the past four seasons in New Orleans, starting two of the 55 game he played.

In the press release announce the signing, Mitchell was touted by the Dolphins as a top special teams performer.

Incidentally, Mitchell was given number 52, previously worn by six-year starter Channing Crowder.
