This morning, multiple media reports indictated the Miami Dolphins were set to host free agent offensive tackle Jason Fox on a visit. Just a couple of hours later, the team announced they had signed Fox.
Fox was a 2010 fourth-round pick out of the University of Miami, spending his career with the Detroit Lions. He appeared in 12 games over his four seasons, with three starts.
According to Pro Football Talk, the deal with Fox is for one year. No salary has been announced yet. [UPDATE: According to Armand Salguero, Fox will be making $795,000 this season. Hat tip to KIH004.]
The Dolphins are also supposed to meet with free agent wide receiver Lestar Jean today. The team currently has 59 players under contract, counting Fox. League rules allow teams to have up to 90 players on their roster through the offseason.
Fox' signing continues the Dolphins streak of players visiting the club signing with the team. Only the first visitor, linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, signed elsewhere this year.
