The Miami Dolphins had hoped that A.J. Francis would have slid through waivers after final cuts in training camp.  That didn’t happen when the New England Patriots picked him up.  Today the Dolphins poached Francis off the Patriots practice squad.  Unfortunately Isaako Aiutui was released to make room.

Francis showed a lot of upside while with the Phins and it will be interesting to see if his addition to the 53 will earn him a longer term spot on the teams roster.

The Miami Dolphins also released CB D.J. Campbell.
