In what has seemingly become a weekly occurrence in 2015, the Dolphins have signed Jonas Gray to their practice squad, as agent Sean Stellato tells Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Gray was released by Miami on Tuesday to make room for center Sam Brenner.

Gray was subject to waivers after being cut by the Dolphins and some speculated that he could have been a fit for his old team, the Patriots. However, it appears that the Pats declined an opportunity for a reunion, even though Dion Lewis is done for the season with a torn ACL.
Gray, 25, wasn’t a huge part of Miami’s ground attack this season, but earned 31 carries for 122 yards, along with six receptions for another 72 yards. With rookie Jay Ajayi coming off IR-DTR in Week 9 and looking good, Gray no longer had a real place on the Dolphins’ 53-man roster, making him expendable.
Gray emerged as a potential starter during his 201-yard, four-touchdown performance against the Colts during the 2014 season, but was leapfrogged on the Pats depth chart by LeGarrette Blount and others down the stretch. He has yet to make a major mark in 2015.
