Could Rowe compete for the #2 spot with Tankersley?

NFL: New England Patriots at Jacksonville Jaguars Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins have been rather quiet early on in Free Agency, but have continued to bring in players familiar with the new coaching staff.

According to Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network, the Miami Dolphins have agreed to a 1-year deal with former Patriots defensive back, Eric Rowe.

Rowe, 26, has played in just one full NFL season during his four-year career. The former Philadelphia Eagles second-round pick, was a top-tier prospect in 2015.

His versatility allows him to play on the outside, inside, and on special teams. Rowe also spent some time at safety during his time in Philly.

Throighout his career, Rowe recorded 82 total tackles and 2 interceptions. This is a low-risk, high-reward signing for the Dolphins.
