The Miami Dolphins aren’t finished bolstering their roster yet.

Three-time Pro Bowl pass-rusher Melvin Ingram is signing with the Dolphins, a source told ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques.

After a midseason trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ingram finished the 2021 campaign with the Kansas City Chiefs. He aided the Chiefs’ defensive turnaround, recording five quarterback hits and one sack over nine regular-season games. He also added two sacks in the postseason.

The veteran’s addition is the latest incoming piece in a busy offseason for the Dolphins under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel. The club acquired former Chiefs star Tyreek Hill in a blockbuster trade and signed left tackle Terron Armstead in free agency. Miami also added wide receiver Cedrick Wilson, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and running backs Sony Michel and Raheem Mostert.

Ingram entered the league as a first-round pick by the then-San Diego Chargers in 2012. He spent nine years with the team and registered 49 sacks.

The 33-year-old joins a Miami pass-rush unit featuring Emmanuel Ogbah and 2021 first-rounder Jaelan Phillips, among others.
