DAVIE, FLA. (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says veteran linebacker Kevin Burnett has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins as a replacement for Channing Crowder.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the Dolphins hadn’t announced the agreement.

Crowder, a six-year starter for Miami, was released Friday following the first practice of training camp to pave the way for Burnett’s acquisition.

Burnett, a second-round draft pick by Dallas in 2005, spent four seasons with the Cowboys as a reserve and the past two seasons with San Diego. He started seven games in 2009 and all 16 games last year, when he had 80 tackles, six sacks and two interceptions.
