According to reports, the New England Patriots hosted running back Damien Williams, who was tendered by the team with the original round tender. If the Patriots were to sign the running back, the Dolphins would receive no compensation as Williams was an undrafted free agent. But the Dolphins do have the chance of matching the offer if something does happen though. The Patriots also hosted Mike Gillislee.
