News: Linkenbach has signed a deal with the Dolphins, the Palm Beach Post reports.
Impact: The veteran lineman adds some much-needed depth and versatility to the Dolphin's offensive line. Linkenbach started three games last year for the Chiefs at left guard and in 2011 started all 16 games for the Colts at right tackle. While Linkenbach could see snaps at either left guard or tackle, it is believed that he will be competing for the Dolphins' left guard spot against the current starter Dallas Thomas this offseason.

News: Veteran offensive linemen Jeff Linkenbach and Jacques McClendon have signed with the Miami Dolphins, giving the team some much-needed depth as well as flexibility. Both signed following visits Wednesday.
Impact: Linkenbach has made 36 starts in his five-year career, including three last season - all at left guard - with the Kansas City Chiefs. He joined the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted rookie in 2010 and started all 16 games at tackle in 2011, but allowed 8 1/2 sacks and eventually was relegated to a reserve role. Linkenbach will likely compete with Dallas Thomas for a starting job at left guard.
