The Miami Dolphins continue to look for defensive depth and talent in free agency, hosting linebackers Gary Guyton and Bryan Kehl, according to a Miami Herald report. Both players started their visits yesterday, and are expected to continue meeting with the team today. Either player could be seen as competition with incumbent starter Koa Misi for the outside linebacker position.
Guyton has spent four years with the New England Patriots, starting 30 games. He was an indrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech, recording 47 tackles and an interception last year for the Patriots. He has 229 tackles in his career, with 5 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 15 passes defensed.
Kehl, meanwhile, was a fourth round pick in 2008 for the New York Giants. He spent two years with the Giants before being waived by the Giants during the 2010 season. He was claimed by the St. Louis Rams, where he spent the remainder of the 2010 season, along with last year. He has 106 career tackles, 1 sack, and 1 interception, having only started 5 games over that time.
The Dolphins signed safety Tyrell Johnson last week.
