The Miami Dolphins continue to tweak and turnover their roster which will likely occur all year. Today that added DT Adolphus Washington.
A defensive tackle out of Ohio State University, Adolphus Washington was a third-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2016.
Washington started 11 games in his rookie season and played in 15 games. He finished the season with 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks. The following season he started 10 of 15 games and finished with 33 tackles.
The Bills released Washington one game into the 2018 season. He was signed by the Cowboys and added to their practice squad but his life with Dallas was short lived. Signed on September 18th, the Cincinnati Bengals signed him off the Cowboys practice squad. Two months later he was placed on IR with a knee injury and was waived this past April.
He will join a Dolphins team that needs depth on the defensive front and will provide experience at the position if he is able to make the roster. The Dolphins are staying true to their plan of signing low priced veterans as they re-build, passing on Pro Bowl DT and new free agent Gerald McCoy. The deal for Washington is a one year contract.
In an associated move, the Dolphins waived linebacker James Burgess. Burgess entered the league out of Louisville as an undrafted free agent by the Dolphins in 2016. He signed on to the practice squad but was released in mid-September.
Burgess has since seen time with the Chargers, Ravens, Jaguars, and Browns and was re-signed by the Dolphins in 2018 landing on their practice squad.
