Dolphins sign former Broncos, Steelers OLB, reuniting him with Vic Fangio, Bradley Chubb – The Denver Post

The Miami Dolphins bring a new passing thrower in the former Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers outside of linebacker Malik Reed, his advertised agent and a confirmed source at the Sun Sentinel.

Reed reunites with new Dolphins defensive coordinator Vic Fangio in Miami. Reed played his first three NFL seasons in Denver, coinciding with Fangio’s tenure as head coach with the Broncos. He also joins former Broncos defenseman Bradley Chubb, who was traded to the Dolphins last season.

An undrafted player from Nevada in 2019, Reed initially developed to start eight games this rookie season. Between the 2020 and 2021 seasons with the Broncos, he made 13 starts each and combined for 96 tackles, 13 sacks and three forced fumbles. Reed had a career-high eight sacks in 2020.

Reed was traded to the Steelers ahead of the 2022 season. In Pittsburgh, he saw a decrease in playing time, starting just two games, recording 25 tackles and one sack. He has been a special teams contributor throughout his career.

Reed (6-2, 235) will look for snaps behind Chubb and Jaelan Phillips in the Miami defense while defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, who just suffered a season-ending triceps injury, could also factor into the rush. the pass on the edge. The Dolphins could leave Andrew Van Ginkel after four seasons, and veteran three-time pro Bowler Melvin Ingram is also a free agent.
