The Dolphins are signing pass rusher Melvin Ingram

Written by Tanner Phifer

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a contract with free agent pass rusher Melvin Ingram, who has bounced around from team to team since his time with the Chargers. Ingram, 33, was selected by the San Diego Chargers with the 18th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

On June 11, 2017, Ingram signed a four-year, $66 million contract with $42 million guaranteed with the Chargers and played it out through the 2020 season, and that is when he signed a one year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He signed this deal on July 20th, 2021 and was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs on November 2, 2021 in exchange for a sixth-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. He has remained a free agent since then and has taken his time to choose where to play next, despite interest from multiple teams.

The Dolphins have spent a lot of money in this off-season and strengthen their pass rush by signing Ingram, who has 51 sacks, 277 tackles, and 15 forced fumbles in 128 games played in his career.
