Miami Dolphins try out Marvin Austin


The Miami Dolphins have been impressive to start the 2013-14 NFL season and some are now believing that they are the best team in the AFC East, but they don’t seem to be done bolstering their defensive front just yet.

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Dolphins have recently worked out defensive tackle Marvin Austin, who was selected by the New York Giants in the second-round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Austin was released by the Giants during the final roster cuts this preseason, but that hasn’t stopped teams from showing interest in the former North Carolina Tar Heels standout.

The Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions have all worked out Austin since he was released by the Giants.

As an added sign that the Dolphins are looking to add to their front seven, they have also conducted work outs with defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, defensive end Marcus Dixon and nose tackle Jerell Powe.
