The Miami Dolphins have signed former 49ers RB LaMichael James to their practice squad, according to his agent Jeff Sperbeck.

The Dolphins worked out former James a few weeks ago, so he was clearly on their radar.
James, 24, was taken in the second-round of the 2012 draft, but was unable to carve out a role with the 49ers. Previous reports mentioned that James had requested a trade, but there was little to no reported interest.
Last year, the 49ers had James active for just 10 games, which had a lot to do with him being slotted as the No. 4 running back on the team’s depth chart. To make matters worse, James played just 28 snaps this season and totaled 59 yards on 12 carries.
