Defensive last Melvin Ingram played for two teams last NFL season.

After six games with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he was traded to the Kansas City Chief for a sixth-round pick in the 2022 draft.

He played nine games for the chiefs, a total of 15 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.

But after some uncertainty about his NFL journey, the three-time pro bowler will remain at the AFC.

CBS’s NFL reports that Ingram will sign with the Miami Dolphins.

To which, league insider Jordan Schultz commented, “# Dolphins have a very blitz-heavy defense and as a result Melvin Ingram will fit in very well. He started three play-offs last season and played well for the #Chiffs.”

Ingram helped the chiefs stabilize the defense, especially to stop the run.

The former South Carolina standout was also adept at putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

Therefore, he would feel more at home with the Miami defense.

Along with Emanuel Ogbah and Zelan Phillips, Ingram could also go to the quarterback if his teammates are double-team.

If he is somewhat controlled by the Kansas City defense, he will have more chances to try to sack with the Dolphins.

Miami talent is stacked

Ingram’s addition strengthens the dolphin’s defenses, which could be one of the best in the NFL.

Ogbah and Phillips combined to advance the charge for 17.5 sacks last season.

They were backed by Jerome Baker, Christian Wilkins and Brandon Jones who had 15 sacks among them.

Meanwhile, Xavier Howard will be their secondary anchor.

Adding Ingram with a loaded defense is an insurance that they cover all levels.

Combine this unit with their explosive offense and the Dolphins could finally make the playoffs after getting smaller in the last two seasons.
