The Miami Dolphins have spent the last couple of days looking for a replacement to wide receiver Armon Binns, who tore his ACL and MCL this week. At the end of the day, however, the team turned to a familiar face. According to the Sun Sentinel's Omar Kelly, the Dolphins have signed Julius Pruitt.
Pruitt spent the 2011 season with the Dolphins, serving primarily as a gunner on special teams. He originally signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent from Division II Ouachita Baptist in 2009, spending the majority of his first two years on the practice squad. He was released early in last year's training camp.
The Dolphins looked at Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson before choosing to bring back Pruitt. Having spent time with the Dolphins in training camp last year, Pruitt's familiarity with the basic offense may have been a factor in that decision.
Besides Binns, the Dolphins also have wide receivers Rishard Matthews and Brian Hartline nursing injuries.
