The Dolphins added some more depth to their defensive line today, by agreeing to terms with free agent defensive tackle Montavious Stanley. The 6’3, 302 pounder has spent time on five different clubs, most recently with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In four seasons, Stanley has accounted for 53 tackles and 1.5 sacks in primarily a reserve role.
He’s been in the 4-3 system for most of his career, but in the Dolphins 3-4, he’s a prototypical defensive end. Of course, the Dolphins shied away from prototypical with their move of Randy Starks to nose tackle, but Stanley is most likely being brought in to add even further depth to defensive end after the Phillip Merling debacle.
