Dolphins Sign LB Josh Linam To Take Roster Spot Previously Occupied By Chad Johnson

The Miami Dolphins have filled the roster spot that was available since wide receiver Chad Johnson was released earlier in the week. That spot has been filled by signing linebacker Josh Linam. Linam is a rookie out of Central Florida and wen undrafted, but he was immediately signed a deal with the San Diego Chargers as a rookie free agent. He was then unable to land a spot on the team, and was cut on July 27.

In his final year with Central Florida, Linam recorded 66 tackles -- 40 of them being solo -- with two sacks, 10 tackles for loss, two passes broken up, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and two interceptions. For his career at Central Florida, Linam played 50 games for the Knights and had 165 tackles, three sacks, six pass breakups, three forced fumbles and three interceptions.
