The Miami Dolphins announced Tuesday that they’ve signed six players to futures contracts for the 2019 season.
The full list includes:
- LB James Burgess
- C Connor Hilland
- S Chris Lammons
- DT Jamiyus Pittman
- LB Quentin Poling
- DE Jeremiah Valoaga
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Burgess, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville back in 2016. He was, unfortunately, among Miami’s final roster cuts but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.
After brief stints with the Chargers, Ravens and Jaguars, Burgess signed on to the Browns’ practice squad during the 2016 season. Cleveland brought him back on a futures contract the following year before waiving him from injured reserve with a settlement in October.
In 2018, Burgess has appeared in three games and recorded eight tackles and no sacks or interceptions.
