Dolphins Signing DE Melvin Ingram

Jordan Schultz reports that the Dolphins are signing veteran free agent DE Melvin Ingram to a contract.

Ingram visited with the Dolphins last month after having a UFA tender placed on him by the Chiefs.

Ingram, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.39 million rookie contract that included 7.61 million guaranteed before the Chargers picked up his fifth-year option that paid him $7,751,000 for the 2017 season.

The Chargers placed the franchise tag on Ingram in 2017 before later signing him to a four-year, $66 million contract with $42 million guaranteed. He played out that deal and signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Steelers for 2021.

However, the Steelers traded Ingram to the Chiefs ahead of the deadline for a sixth-round pick. 

In 2021, Ingram appeared in six games for the Steelers and nine games for the Chiefs. He recorded 25 total tackles, four tackles for loss, two sacks, one forced fumble, and one pass defense.

We had him included in our Top 100 – 2022 Free Agents list.
