Clayton Fejedelem Joins Miami

While it’s far from the biggest news in the Dolphins secondary, Miami agreed to terms with safety and core special-teams player Clayton Fejedelem on a three-year deal worth up to $8.55MM ($3MM guarantees), according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

The Bengals selected Fejedelem in the seventh round of the 2016 Draft and has appeared in every game for Cincinnati in the four seasons since. While he started five games at safety in 2017 and nabbed an interception and a pair of passes defended, the bulk of his work has come on special teams.

Over his career, Fejedelem has made 77 solo tackles, forced one fumble, recovered two fumbles, and scored one touchdown. The Dolphins amidst a major rebuild are flush with cap space and are clearly targetting specific players. Fejedelem’s addition will not transform the franchise, but it will add a solid contributor to a team flush with young talent, assets, and a long-term plan.
