The Miami Dolphins are getting to the re-signing of their own players today, inking offensive lineman Jason Fox and safety Jordan Kovacs to new deals. Fox announced his deal on Twitter, while the Kovacs contract was announced by agent David Canter:
Fox spent most of the 2014 season as a reserve tackle for the team before moving into the starting lineup for the final two games after the team moved Ja'Wuan James from right tackle to the left side of the line and Dallas Thomas failed to lock down the position. The contract is a two-year deal worth $2.5 million.
Kovacs joined the Dolphins midseason last year after being released by the team at the end of the preseason. He spent the early part of the year on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad until Miami brought him back after an injury ended fellow safety Michael Thomas' season.
Kovacs primarily played special teams with the Dolphins, appearing in eight contests and recording seven tackles. Details of his contract were not disclosed.
