Bronson, 25, signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Washington back in June. Seattle wound up cutting him as they worked to get down to 75 players last year.
The Seahawks later signed him to a future/reserve contract in February, but wound up waiving him just a few weeks ago. The Dolphins signed him to a contract a few days later.
During his four-year college career, Bronson ran for 689 yards on 197 carries (3.5 YPC) while contributing eight receptions for 51 yards receiving and 14 totals touchdowns.
The Miami Dolphins have released veteran P Brandon Fields on Tuesday, as they trim their roster down to 75 players ahead of today’s deadline.
Fields, 31, had two years remaining on his five-year, $14.424 million contract that included $3.3 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $3.358 million for the 2015 season.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Fields will free up $1,750,000 in cap space while creating $770,000 in dead money.
In 2014, Fields appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and total 2339 yards punting and three touchbacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 23 punter out of 38 qualifying players last year.
