Miami Meets with Free Agent Melvin Ingram

Share This Post

If you have not already heard, free agent DE Melvin Ingram traveled to Miami last Monday to visit the Dolphins and discuss a potential contract. One week after his arrival and still no deal has been announced between the two parties.

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was asked about Ingram’s visit during a media session this past Wednesday, he praised the career Ingram has had mentioning about how the Dolphins did Melvin due diligence and stated, “We will see where it goes from here”. Melvin Ingram is currently 32 and has spent all of his 9 NFL seasons with the Chargers, he has a career total 49 sacks, and 13 forced fumbles.

Videos have surfaced on Xavien Howard’s Instagram of the two training together this past week which a lot of fans have been taking as a good sign for a potential deal to be reached soon.

Ingram dealt with an on and off knee injury throughout 2020, where he only appeared in seven games for the Chargers while recording only five tackles and one interception, before being placed on the injured reserve in November which ultimately led to the end of his season. Making 2020 the only season Ingram went without recording a single sack.

The idea of adding a player of Melvin Ingram’s caliber to this already stacked defense, assuming the injuries he has faced the past year don’t dwindle his ability to remain a factor on the defensive end should be very exciting for Dolphins fans.  Two of the Dolphins most vocal leaders on the defensive end from last season, Kyle Van Noy, and Bobby McCain are no longer on the team and their veteran leadership did wonders for Miami all season long.  Ingram would be an exceptional candidate to fill those empty shoes. 

MELVIN INGRAM: LOW RISK, HIGH REWARD…

With not a lot being reported about the status of a contract being completed, it leaves room to speculate that maybe numbers are most likely failing to match from both partie’s end, or maybe Miami is waiting to clear more cap space before getting a deal finalized.  Either way it wouldn’t make much sense for the Dolphins to do anything long-term with Melvin Ingram given that he is coming off an injury riddled season, a one-year prove it deal would be most ideal scenario for Chris Grier and the Dolphins.
