Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins are signing RB Samaje Perine off of the Bengals’ practice squad on Monday. Rapoport adds that Perine is expected to be part of the Dolphins’ future in 2020.
The Dolphins officially confirmed the news on Tuesday and announced that they’ve placed RB Myles Gaskin on injured reserve.
Perine, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2017. He was in the third year of his four-year, $3.05 million rookie contract with the Redskins waived him coming out of the preseason.
The Bengals later claimed Perine off of waivers before waiving him in October and later re-signing him to their practice squad.
In 2019, Perine has appeared in six games for the Bengals, but has yet to receive a carry.
