As was noted yesterday, the Miami Dolphins have been busy over the past 24 hours or so. The team started Wednesday with the fewest players under contract in the league; only 58 of their authorized 90 roster positions were filled. They began changing that with the signing of wide receiver Kevin Cone and offensive lineman Jason Fox. It continued last night with the addition of quarterback Jordan Rodgers. Now, the team, has announced the signing of wide receiver Michael Rios as well.

The Dolphins included the following information about Rios in their press release:

The 6-2, 203-pound Rios comes to the Dolphins after spending time with the Arizona Cardinals in 2013. He originally joined the Cardinals as an undrafted college free agent on April 29, 2013, but was waived prior to the start of training camp on July 24, 2013. Rios concluded his collegiate career at Marist as the school’s all-time leader in touchdown receptions (17) and also set school records for the most yards in a season (1,173) and most touchdowns in a season (10). He finished his career with 86 receptions for 2,017 yards and 17 touchdowns. Born June 9, 1990, Rios attended Belen Jesuit High School in Miami, Florida.

The Dolphins are also expected to meet with free agent wide receiver Nate Burleson, and met with Lestar Jean yesterday.
