Sam Brenner has once again been waived by the Miami Dolphins, this time to be replaced by linebacker James-Michael Johnson. The center seems to be permanently rooted as the first player the Dolphins waive whenever they need to add another player to the roster, only to find himself re-signed by the team. He was last signed by Miami on November 10, after being waived on November 7.

Johnson joins Miami as a free agent after having spent brief periods with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Jacksonville Jaguars this season, appearing in three total games. He played for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2014 and 2013, where he appeared in all 32 games with 10 starts, totaling 2 passes defensed, 2 forced fumbles, 1 sack, and 68 tackles. He joined the NFL in 2012 as a fourth round pick of the Cleveland Browns out of Nevada, playing 10 games with eight starts, recording 23 tackles as a rookie.

Johnson was last with the Detroit Lions from November 4-14 this year, but made no in-game appearances.
