MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Two-time Super Bowl-winning linebacker Trey Flowers has signed with the Miami Dolphins.

The team announced the addition of Flowers on Monday, two days after Miami defeated Philadelphia in the preseason finale.

First-year Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel told reporters Sunday that the team recently hosted Flowers for a workout.

"What I saw was a guy [who is] in shape [who is] ready to play," McDaniel said. "He's a consummate professional with a lot of versatility to his game and length. His style of football is conducive to the style we play. His versatility is attractive."
