Dolphins Claim Bengals' Armon Binns From Waivers

Patrick McDermott

The Miami Dolphins have claimed former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Armon Binns off waivers. The team waived cornerback Michael Coe to make room for Binns.

According to the team, the Miami Dolphins have been awarded the rights to wide receiver Armon Binns from the Cincinnati Bengals. Binns was waived by the Bengals on Saturday. To make roster space for Binns, the Dolphins waived cornerback Michael Coe.

The 6'3", 210 pound Binns joins the Dolphins after appearing in eight games this season for Cincinnati. He has 18 receptions for 210 yards on the year with one touchdown. Binns was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2011, before he was released and signed by the Bengals to their practice squad. He made his way to the Cincinnati active roster in their regular season finale and their Wild Card playoff game last season.

The Bengals were forced to waive Binns before this week's games in order to carry two kickers this week. The team was believed to want to re-sign him should he clear waivers. The New England Patriots, reportedly, put in a waiver claim for Binns as well, but the Dolphins had priority on their AFC East rivals.

Coe was signed by the Dolphins on November 28, hoping the veteran cornerback would be able to provide the team with much needed secondary depth. Coe was originally placed on injured reserve by the New York Giants this season, before they waived him. Miami used Coe primarily in special teams coverage against the New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers.

The Dolphins are 5-8 on the season, having lost their last two contests. They play the Jacksonville Jaguars, in Miami, Sunday.
