Dolphins sign Maualuga, place Ford on IR
Maualuga gives the Dolphins some needed linebacker depth, especially after rookie Raekwon McMillan was lost for the season with a knee injury in Miami's first preseason game.
Maualuga played his first eight NFL seasons in Cincinnati, which cut him back in March. He was a full-time starter for the Bengals in his first seven seasons, then started only six games last season.
Ford was Miami's seventh-round pick in this year's draft out of Virginia Tech.
