Miami Dolphins sign tackle J'Marcus Webb
Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel placed on injured reserve
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins announced Friday that the team has signed offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb.
Miami also announced in a news release that linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel has been placed on injured reserve.
Webb has played in 81 NFL games with 65 starts.
He most recently played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2018 before being placed on injured reserve. He was released Aug. 31.
"J'Marcus Webb is somebody we visited with him earlier in the week, and we felt like he's a guy who's got some experience in the league and would help our team, and we decided to go ahead and make that move," head coach Brian Flores said.
Webb has also played for Seattle in 2016, Oakland in 2015, Minnesota from 2013 to 2014 and Chicago from 2010 to 2012.
He was originally a seventh-round pick (218th overall) by Chicago in the 2010 NFL draft.
Van Ginkel was a fifth-round pick (151st overall) by Miami in the 2019 NFL draft. He played two seasons at Wisconsin, totaling 12 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss.
"He had a good spring and a good start to training camp," Flores said. "Unfortunately, he had the injury. Right now for him, it's just to try to improve and get better every day."
Flores didn't say if he expects Van Ginkel to see the field this season.
"Whatever happens -- however many weeks from now -- it'll happen," Flores said.
