After a busy first day of legal tampering, the Miami Dolphins kicked off day two by taking care of one of their own, inking linebacker Duke Riley to a one-year deal worth $3 million, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Linebacker Duke Riley is signing back with the Dolphins on a one-year, $3 million contract, per his agents @DrewJRosenhaus and @NFLrecord.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 15, 2022
Last season, the former 2017 third-round pick appeared in 16 games with the Dolphins, starting in three of those games.
Riley won’t solve Miami's need at linebacker, but he is added depth and brings a fire to special teams that can’t be replicated. For example, he blocked a punt vs. the Carolina Panthers back in Week 12.
Riley finished the 2021 season with 26 total tackles.
