Dolphins To Sign Kevin Cone

Free agent wide receiver Kevin Cone has agreed to terms with the Dolphins, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (via Twitter). Cone had been eligible for a contract tender from the Falcons this offseason, but the team elected not to hang onto his rights, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Cone, 26, has only appeared in 51 offensive snaps since entering the league with the Falcons in 2011, recording a single reception for 12 yards in 2013. However, he was a regular special teams contributor last season, logging six tackles in kick and punt coverage for the unit.

The Panthers brought Cone in for a visit last month.
