The Miami Dolphins and T.J. Heath have agreed to a deal that brings the cornerback back to the team for the 2015 season. Heath appeared in two games for the Dolphins in 2014 after spending most of the season on the practice squad. He has also spent time on the Cleveland Browns' practice squad (2013), the Buffalo Bills' practice squad (2012), the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad (2012), and the Jacksonville Jaguars' active roster and practice squad (2011). He was originally signed by the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville State.
Heath has appeared in seven games in his career, five with the Jaguars and the two with Miami.
While at Jacksonville State, Heath recorded 145 tackles and 10 interceptions during his career with the Gamecocks. He was named first-team All-OVC as a senior and was a second-team All-America selection as a junior.
Along with Heath, Miami currently has Brent Grimes, Jamar Taylor, Will Davis, and the newly signed Brice McCain at cornerback. Recently re-signed safety Michael Thomas could also move into the rotation at the position if needed.
