The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor on Monday, a day ahead of the start of the team’s mandatory minicamp. The lone mandatory event for veterans between the end of the last season and the start of training camp, the Dolphins’ minicamp will run from Tuesday through Thursday. Eluemunor will likely join the team for the first time for the camp as he moves to South Florida after two seasons with the New England Patriots.
To make roster space for Eluemunor, the Dolphins waived Timon Parris.
Eluemunor was originally a fifth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2017 out of Texas A&M. He spent two seasons with the Ravens, appearing in eight games as a rookie. He began the 2018 season on the Ravens’ practice squad before moving up to the active roster mid-season. He was traded to the Patriots in August 2019, appearing in 10 games that season, then was listed as the team’s starting right tackle in 2020, but saw an ankle injury sideline him for the middle of the season. He still played in 12 games with eight starts last season.
Parris joined the Dolphins in May after spending time on the Washington Football Team and Cleveland Browns practice squads last year. He has four appearances in his career, all with Washington in 2018 and 2019 after being signed by the club as an undrafted free agent out of Stony Brook in 2018.
