Report: Dolphins Sign LB Phillip Wheeler

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Miami Dolphins have continued their offseason splurge by agreeing to terms with free agent LB Phillip Wheeler.

PFT adds that Wheeler receives a five year deal worth $26 million and includes $13 fully guaranteed.

Miami have already signed Dannell Ellerbe, so they clearly wanted to upgrade the linebacker position.

Wheeler, 28, played great for a bad defense and has earned this kind of pay raise. This could be a great signing for the Dolphins.

We had him listed as the No. 22 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
