The Miami Dolphins have re-signed defensive tackle Ryan Baker today, bringing him back to the team after releasing him in the team's final round of roster cuts. Baker fills the roster position vacated by linebacker Sammy Brown, who was released yesterday.

Baker has been with the Dolphins for varying lengths of time over the past four years. He was undrafted out of Purdue in 2009, spending most of that season on the Miami practice squad. He did appear in a few games that year, tallying a half-sack in his first game.

In 2010, Baker was once again put on the Miami practice squad to start the season, but would be signed to the 53-man roster after Week 1 of the season. He would appear in nine games.

Last year, Baker started the year with the team, then was released in late September. He was re-signed on November 30 when the team released Igor Olshansky.

The Dolphins made several roster moves yesterday, releasing Brown, who had been a waiver claim by the team at the end of the preseason, as well as signing wide receiver Brian Tyms and brining back defensive tackle Chad Alecxih, both who are now on the practice squad. The team also released wide receiver Chris Hogan from the practice squad.

Over his previous three years with the Dolphins, Baker played 16 games, tallying seven tackles and a half-sack.
