The Miami Dolphins announced Thursday that they’ve signed WR Francis Owusu to a futures deal for the 2018 season.
As of now, the Dolphins have signed nine players to futures contracts since the ended including:
- CB Taveze Calhoun
- QB Brandon Doughty
- T Sean Hickey
- CB Tracy Howard
- WR Malcolm Lewis
- WR Drew Morgan
- RB Brandon Radcliff
- DE Jonathan Woodard
- WR Francis Owusu
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Owusu, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in May of last year. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Dolphins waived him with an injury designation and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.
Miami cut him loose soon after.
During his college career at Stanford, Owusu caught 34 passes for 482 yards receiving and three touchdowns over the course of four years and 24 games.
