Phins Sign Marques Douglas, Merling Out For Year

The Miami Dolphins bucked a trend or rather an unwritten policy and have signed former NY Jets DE Marques Douglas. The signing comes on the heals of Phillip Merling’s season ending injury.

Douglas, 34 years old is a rather big change for a team that normally doesn’t sign players over 30. Earlier speculation was that the Phins would pursue a trade for former Bill Parcells draft pick Marcus Spears. Instead they opted for a player with Mike Nolan connections. Douglas played for Nolan in 2005.

Merling who has had a rough off-season that began with hitting his pregnant girlfriend and last week had that incident officially bring a felony charge will at least not have to worry about a competition with Jared Odrick.

Training camp begins next Friday.
