Andre Branch agrees to terms with the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a one-year contract with defensive end Andre Branch, The Herald's Barry Jackson is reporting.

And you're saying, "Who?"

Well, Jackson covers sports for The Herald ... Oh, you mean, who is Andre Branch?

Branch is a 26-year-old veteran of four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has 14 career sacks in 51 games. He has always been a part-time player although last year injuries and other issues thrust Branch into starting nine games for Jacksonville.

"I always want to be better than yesterday," Branch said.

One thing that must be said: The Jags had Branch and brought in three other pass rushers to play ahead of him.

Miami's plan initially? The Dolphins are looking to Cameron Wake to be on a snap count of sorts coming of a season-ending Achilles injury at age 34. Indeed, Wake was on something of a limited snap count last year.

Branch can eat up some of those snaps while Wake is on the sideline.
