The Dolphins didn’t need to add a cornerback, it wasn’t a major need for the team. But that didn’t stop them from adding Justin Coleman to the team. You probably already guessed it, but there is a Patriots connection between Coleman and Brian Flores. The Patriots picked up Coleman off waivers back in 2015 when Flores was the safeties coach.

The team added another former Patriot, this time on the defensive line. Adam Butler will be joining and this feels like a swap of players since the Patriots signed Davon Godchaux.

The Dolphins also finally added a wide receiver, but not one of the bigger names on the market. Instead they went for a depth signing with Robert Foster. He’ll bring plenty of speed the wide receiver room.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
