The Splash Zone 8/20/17: Dolphins Add Rey Maualuga

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins added some depth to their linebacker room as the team signed former Cincinnati Bengal, Rey Maualuga. As Armando pointed out, the Dolphins will probably use Maualuga primarily on early downs to stop to run but will not be in for the nickle package. The Dolphins needed to add a linebacker after the loss of Raekwon McMillan.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
