The Miami Dolphins announced today that they have promoted safety Brandian Ross from the practice squad to the team's 53-man roster. They waived defensive tackle Bruce Gaston to make roster space.
Ross joined the Dolphins as a waiver claim during the final round of roster cuts in August. He was originally an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State in 2011, signing with the Green Bay Packers. After a little over a year on the Packers' practice squad, the Oakland Raiders poached him, where he played 14 games in 2012, with one start, that year, totalling 17 tackles. In 2013, Ross started 13 games for Oakland, appearing in all 16, with two sacks, three passes defensed, one forced fumble, and 74 tackles.
Gaston was claimed by the Dolphins off of waivers earlier this month, after he had spent two days with the New England Patriots. He spent the preseason with the Arizona Cardinals, before being waived in the final round of roster cuts.
