Dolphins add K Jake Rogers, DT Cory Grissom; Need 14 cuts by Tuesday afternoon

The Miami Dolphins have announced the signig of kicker Jake Rogers and defensive tackle Cory Grissom.


The Miami Dolphins have announced the signing of kicker Jake Rogers and defensive tackle Cory Grissom.  The move brings the Dolphins' roster back to 89 players, just one day before the NFL mandated 75-man roster limit.

Rogers joins the team to offset injuries to both Caleb Sturgis, the team's incumbent kicker, and John Potter, signed to fill in for Sturgis.  Potter injured his hip during the team's game Saturday night on a first quarter field goal.  Sturgis has been battling a groin injury all preseason.

Grissom joins the Dolphins after spending the offseason with the Kansas City Chiefs.  He was a 2013 undrafted free agent signing of the New England Patriots, but spent the year on injured reserve.  A University of South Florida product, Grissom appeared in 46 games for the Bills, with 40 career starts, recording 105 tackles, five sacks, three passes defensed, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.

Every NFL team has until 4pm ET Tuesday to trim their rosters to the 75-man limit.
