The Dolphins mean business.

We already know Tyreek Hill is making his return to Kansas City for Saturday's Wild Card showdown between the Chiefs and Dolphins, but now Miami has added former Chiefs star Justin Houston to their roster.

Miami is banged up defensively and missing several key starters, so signing a veteran pass rusher makes sense.

Nonetheless, it'll hurt to see both Hill and Houston on the opposite sideline.

Chiefs News: Dolphins Sign Justin Houston Before Playoff Game

Houston played seven games for the Panthers this year before being released and now gets one last playoff run in an attempt to secure a Super Bowl.

He was productive for the Ravens in 2022, compiling 9.5 sacks in just 14 games. It looks like he can still be a quality player, and he's certainly familiar with playing in cold winter games at Arrowhead Stadium.

Given the game is in four days, I don't expect Houston to make a huge impact on Saturday. He'll likely get on the field a bit, and hopefully, the Chiefs' offensive line can hold up. There are a lot of players on the opposite sideline who know Kansas City well, so it'll be quite an interesting contest.

We'll see if there are any more roster moves or injury updates throughout the week, but for at least one game, Houston will suit up with the Dolphins.
