Miami Dolphins beef up safety, sign Darious and Thompson The Miami Dolphins signed strong safety Donovin Darius and free safety Lamont Thompson to help the team after it became known that starter safety Yeremiah Bell will miss the rest of the season with a torn left Achilles tendon. Yeremiah Bell was hurt during the season-opening game against the Washington Redskins, which the Dolphins lost 13-16 in overtime.

 Donovin Darius was released by Oakland last week, after they sign him from the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was first round draft pick of the Jaguars in 1998. During the 2006 season in a game against the NY Giants, Darius broke his leg and missed the rest of the season. He was released by the Jaguars in June and signed with Oakland as a free agent in July of this year. Darius was cut by the Raiders in the beginning of September. He is known as one of the league's hardest-hitting safeties. Lamont Thompson was released by the Tennessee Titans on September 1st 2007, after playing three seasons with the team. He was Cincinnati Bengals' second round draft pick in 2002.

 Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins released linebacker Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, who they signed in February of this year.

 On Sunday the Dolphins (0-1) will welcome the Dallas Cowboys (1-0) for the NFL Week 2. The Cowboys are favorite -4 on the spread and the total is currently set at 41.5 points by the online bookmaker Bodog Sports.
