Report: Miami Dolphins signing edge rusher Brennan Scarlett to one-year deal

1 Min Read

The Miami Dolphins took another step toward bolstering their defense by signing edge rusher Brennan Scarlett to a one-year contract.

The 27-year-old Scarlett has is coming off a down 2020 campaign in which he failed to pick up any sacks after collecting 3.5 during the 2019 season.

On the tackle front, Scarlett only had 28 stops last season after 51 the year before. He does bring an aggressive approach to the field, having forced a trio of fumbles during the course of his career.

The Dolphins may add more defenders to their roster prior to next month’s draft, though they’re likely to also use at least one of their high draft picks to build up that unit.
