Dolphins had a large group of free agents in for visits – Dolphins Wire

The Miami Dolphins have been combing through the list of free agents with the hopes of improving their roster and practice squad for the season.
On Monday, the Dolphins had 10 players in for visits, and they ended up signing four of them to the practice squad by the end of the day, including defensive tackle Josiah Bronson, defensive end Markaviest “Big Kat” Bryant, defensive tackle Christopher Hinton and defensive back Chris Steele.
These are the six that they didn’t sign, but with the practice squad being so fluid each year, there’s a chance that Miami goes back to them at some point.
