Steinbach is a former Pro Bowl alternate who missed last season with a back injury that required surgery. He had a procedure to remove a disc fragment from his spinal nerve

He had been slowed by the back injury during training camp since joining the Dolphins.

Steinbach is a former second-round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals.

He was signed to a seven-year, $49.5 million contract by the Cleveland Browns in 2007 and was named a Pro Bowl alternate that season.

He was cut by Cleveland on March 14.
