Davie, FL (Sports Network) - The Miami Dolphins Tuesday signed offensive tackle Damion McIntosh, who had been an unrestricted free agent.
McIntosh, who was with San Diego the past four seasons, signed a six-year contract.
The 26-year old McIntosh started 13 games at left tackle for the Chargers in 2003. He was part of a line that led a running game which finished sixth in the NFL, averaging 134.1 yards per game and 5.1 yards per rush attempt. The Chargers line paved the way for running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who registered 2,370 total yards from scrimmage, the second-highest mark in NFL history.
Tomlinson finished third in the NFL with 1,645 rushing yards, the second-best total in team history. San Diego's line also allowed just 29 sacks last season. The 6-4, 325-pound McIntosh originally was a third-round draft choice (83rd overall) of San Diego in 2000. In his four years with the team, he played in 41 regular season games, starting 37 of them, all at left tackle.
Also Tuesday, the team waived safety Antwoine Sanders.
