As of now, the Dolphins have signed eight players to futures deals including:
- LB James Burgess
- C Connor Hilland
- S Chris Lammons
- DT Jamiyus Pittman
- LB Quentin Poling
- DE Jeremiah Valoaga
- LB Sam Eguavoen
- QB Jake Rudock
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Rudock, 25, is a former sixth-round pick by the Lions of the 2016 NFL Draft. Detroit elected to waive him as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit at the start of the 2016 season and they signed him to their practice squad after clearing waivers.
Rudock managed to make the 53-man roster in 2017 and returned to the Lions on an exclusive rights free agent last year.
Detroit waived Rudock coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.
In 2017, Rudock appeared in three games for the Lions and completed three of five pass attempts for 24 yards and an interception.
