    Dolphins add journeyman DT Montavious Stanley

    From the Sun-Sentinel:

    By Omar Kelly, Sun Sentinel
    The Miami Dolphins continued their efforts to upgrade a depleted defensive line, agreeing to contract terms Sunday with defensive tackle Montavious Stanley.

    A journeyman who has played for five teams since leaving the University of Louisville, Stanley is 6 feet 2, 302 pounds. He was selected in the sixth round of the 2006 draft by the Cowboys.

    On Sunday his agent, Ralph Cindrich, confirmed the deal, which the Dolphins have not announced.

    He is the second defensive lineman the team has added since nose tackle Jason Ferguson retired earlier this month and Phillip Merling, the projected starting defensive end, suffered a season ending Achilles' injury last week.

    The Dolphins signed 10-year veteran defensive end Marques Douglas to a two-year deal on Friday.

    Last season Stanley played defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars, contributing 20 tackles, three pass deflections and one sack.

    In his four NFL seasons Stanley, 28, has played in 33 games, starting six. He's contributed 53 tackles (46 solo), one and a half sacks, and forced one fumble.

    Stanley will likely compete with fellow defensive tackles Paul Soliai, Ryan Baker and Travis Ivey, an undrafted rookie, for the role as Randy Starks' backup at nose tackle.

    Because he's played in too many regular season games he's ineligible for the practice squad, so he'll either make the 53-man roster at the end of training camp, or get released.
