Post Dolphins host free agent OLB Rashad Jeanty

by Brian Biggane
With 2009 starters Joey Porter and Akin Ayodele likely playing elsewhere next season and Jason Taylor’s future uncertain, the Dolphins have some work to do to fill out their linebacking corps. They took a step in that direction Thursday when they hosted free agent Rashad Jeanty.

Jeanty, 26, who played the last four seasons with Cincinnati, was born in Miami and played at Carol City High School and the University of Central Florida. Failing to catch on with an NFL team, he spent his first four pro seasons with Edmonton of the CFL before signing a two-year deal with Cincinnati in 2006.


Jeanty started 32 games with the Bengals over the past four seasons including 15 in 2008, when he finished second on the team in tackles with 96. Last year he made just one start and totaled 20 tackles.

A 6-foot-2, 247-pounder, Jeanty, 26, suffered a broken leg in the Bengals’ playoff loss to the New York Jets on Jan. 9.

Jeanty played left outside linebacker for Cincinnati. That’s similar to the spot vacated by the departure of Porter; Cameron Wake is expected to have the inside track to start there next year. While it has been speculated Miami will use a high draft pick at the other outside spot, as of now Charlie Anderson and Quentin Moses are the top candidates.

Well we do need LB depth

Look at the roster. Without JT, JP we are down to Anderson - Wake, Torbor is listed as an ILB.

We have to add some depth at that position as well as hit the draft with our 1st or 2nd pick in this position..

It surely would make alot of sense to get Taylor back... We could easily sure him up with a respectable contract + performance incentives..

For a team run by Parcells we look weak in the LB area... Dont see use entering the 2010 season without a few more guys like this one coming in....

The Dolphins would no5 have to give the Bengals any compensation if they signed him and the Bengals decided not to match.


I'm not too familiar with him, but I am familiar with the way the Bengals play defense. I am not impressed with the Bengals in any way.

Mike Zimmer did a very good job with the Cincy defense this year, as they finished 4th in overall defense.

6th against the pass, 7th against the rush and 6th in scoring defense at 18.2 points a game, and this was with a good bit of injuries that hit that club late in the season. The offense is what let the Bengals down this year.

Jeanty would be another guy bought in to add depth and competition at the position and he has been a starter for Cincy. Nothing major, but you could always use young depth at a position.

did he already come in for a visit?? or is this a projected visit? Just wondering if there is a chance there working on signing him or if we are waiting for him to come down and workout.

He would probably primarily be a 3rd down LB. It would be interesting to see what he would play if he was forced into a base 34 D situation. If we did sign him, it would probably be the end of Reggie Torbor's stint here.
