RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Erik Walden.

2015

Walden enters training camp as a starting outside linebacker, but faces competition from Bjoern Werner and Trent Cole for playing time. Walden had a career-high six sacks last season, though he generally graded poorly as a pass rusher. He could rotation with Cole or Werner as he's better in pass coverage.

2014

Walden will start at an outside linebacker spot but could compete with Bjoern Werner for playing time once Robert Mathis returns from a four-game suspension. Walden was a disappointment after signing a four-year, $16 million contract as he had just three sacks last year.

2013

Walden, acquired through free agency from the Packers, will bring experience in the 3-4 defense to outside linebacker. Each of the last three seasons playing part-time at the position, he notched three sacks.

2012

Walden add depth at outside linebacker for the Packers.

2011

Trying to win a starting outside linebacker spot.

2010

Walden is nothing more than a reserver defensive end/linebacker, and the Dolphins are loaded with this type of player.

2009

Will mainly work on Special Teams with Miami.

2008

Depth DE/OLB.
