MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – After hours of waiting, the Miami Dolphins have finally agreed to terms with their first veteran free agent.

According to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have agreed to a 2-year deal with reserve defensive lineman Tony McDaniel. The 6’7” 300-plus pound lineman has been a key player in the Dolphins defensive line rotation.

“I’m a Dolphin at heart,” McDaniel told the Herald. “I’m a big part of their defense. We have a lot of depth on the defensive line, and they showed they like me.”

McDaniel has the versatility to play either defensive end or defensive tackle for the Fins. Last season, he recorded 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He also recorded 4 pass deflections during the 2010 season.

McDaniel will likely continue lining up at end to give a break to either Kendall Langford or Randy Starks. He can also be used to give nose tackle Paul Soliai a break during the game.
