The Miami Dolphins have signed two more players to future contracts over the last two days, the team has announced. The team signed wide receiver Tyler Davis on Thursday, then followed that with signing defensive back Damarr Aultman on Friday.
Davis played the 2015 season for the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes in the German Football League, earning the league's Most Valuable Player award. Playing both wide receiver and defensive back, Davis recorded 94 receptions fort 1,7322 yards with 24 touchdowns along with six interceptions. He also played in the German Football League in 2014 with the Munich Cowboys, recording 28 receptions for 686 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. He played college football at Missouri Valley.
Aultman returns to the team after being released form the practice squad, as a wide receiver, during the season. An undrafted free agent out of Maine, Aultman signed with Miami in May as a wide receiver. He remained with the team through the preseason, then was released in the final round of roster cuts. The Dolphins then signed him to the practice squad in Week 3, where he remained for three weeks.
Futures contracts are deals with players who are not on an active roster at the end of the season, but do not go into effect until the start of the new league year in March. They are used for teams to start building their roster from the 53-man in-season roster limit to the 90-man limit during the offseason and Preseason.
