Dolphins host William Joseph

According to the team's official website, the Dolphins today hosted DT William Joseph:

A five-year NFL veteran, Joseph (born September 3, 1979, in Miami, Fla.) was a first-round draft choice of the New York Giants in 2003. He played in 55 games in his five years with the Giants and recorded 72 tackles, including seven sacks. Joseph played in all 47 games during his four years at the University of Miami (Fla.) and was an All-Big East selection as a senior.

Some of you may remember him from his days at The U.  At 6'5, 308, Joseph would be an ideal fit to play the defensive end spot in a 3-4 and then shift to the inside when the team goes with 4 down lineman.  Joseph, though, did miss all of the 2007 season with a back injury.

Joseph, as the quote says, is a former first round pick.  And at only 28 years old, he could still have plenty of upside.  If nothing else, he'd provide depth for the defensive line.
