Dolphins Claim CB Dimitri Patterson off Waivers

US PRESSWIRE

The MIami Dolphins have claimed cornerback Dimitri Patterson off waivers today. Patterson fills the roster spot emptied by tight end Charles Clay being placed on injured reserve today.

The Dolphins currently have Sean Smith, Jimmy Wilson, Bryan McCann, and R.J. Stanford as healthy cornerbacks. Wilson has been used as both a cornerback and safety this year, with the team moving him to safety in the offseason after he played corner his rookie season.

Patterson appeared in seven games this season for the Browns, starting four. He had five passes defensed with 28 tackles. The Dolphins take over Patterson's contract, which has two more years, with $4.5 million due to him in 2013 and $5.3 million in 2014.

He was born in Miami, attending college at Southeast Missouri State University before transferring for his senior year at Tuskegee University.

Miami plays the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots in the final two games of the season.
