The Miami Dolphins officially placed DB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu on their injured reserve list Tuesday after he passed through waivers unclaimed.
Ekpre-Olomu, 22, was taken in the seventh round of last year’s draft by the Browns. He is in the second year of his four-year, $2,337,300 rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.
The Browns waived him in April and he was claimed by the Dolphins a day later. However, The Dolphins placed him waivers with an injury designation after he suffered another torn ACL.
Ekpre-Olomu was a star at Oregon before he sustained a torn ACL and a dislocated knee, which led to him spending his entire rookie season on the non-football injury list.
While his career has been significantly impacted by his knee injury, Ekpre-Olomu reportedly took out a $3 million insurance policy during his senior year in case of injury.
During his four-year career at Oregon, Ekpre-Olomu recorded 244 tackles, 6.5 sacks, nine interceptions, and eight forced fumbles.
