The Dolphins added a linebacker to their current roster making it 90 players trying out for 53 spots.  Josh Linam last played at University of Central Florida and stands 6'3" 237lbs.  The spot was open after the recent release of Chad Johnson on Sunday.  The Dolphins presumably will use Linam on Special Teams or as a linebacker this weekend to see what he has.His career was highlighted by 165 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, and three interceptions while at UCF.He was most recently released by the San Diego Chargers on July 27th.We will see what Linam can bring to this team defensively and maybe provide a spark and depth to the linebacking corps.
