The Dolphins have signed free-agent defensive lineman Adolphus Washington to a one-year deal, according to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). The 2016 third-round pick has yet to find his footing in the NFL, but he’ll try to stick on the roster in Miami in 2019.
Last year, Washington spent time with three different teams. He was cut after playing one game for the Bills and hooked on with the Cowboys’ practice squad. The Bengals signed him to their active roster towards the end of September, but he was shut down with a knee injury before Thanksgiving. In April, the Bengals waived the 24-year-old.
The Dolphins used their No. 13 overall pick to select Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins and have moved to shore up their D-Line depth in recent weeks. Washington joins fellow veteran hopeful Nate Orchard in his bid to make the 53-man cut.
