Dolphins Working Out CBs Alterraun Verner & Tony Carter


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins are bringing in veteran CBs Alterraun Verner and Tony Carter for workouts on Wednesday.

Over the weekend, Josina Anderson reported that Verner was scheduled a workout with an undisclosed team for next week and it appears as though it will be the Dolphins.

The Jaguars previously brought Verner in for a workout but was reportedly out of shape during the session and didn’t sign him to a contract with the team.

I’ve worked out for a few teams including the Jaguars,” Verner said, per Sirius. “I feel very confident something will happen come late summer.

Some have tossed out the Giants as a speculative landing spot for Verner, so that could be something to keep an eye on.

Verner, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Titans back in 2010. He spent four years in Tennessee before signing a  four-year, $25.5 million contract that included $14 million guaranteed with the Buccaneers in 2014.

Verner was set to make a base salary of $6.5 million for the 2017 season when the Buccaneers released him in a move that freed up $6.5 million of available cap space.

In 2016, Verner appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 16 tackles, one interception and seven pass defenses.

Carter, 31, signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out Florida State of back in 2009. He briefly played for the Patriots and Vikings before rejoining the Broncos in 2011 when he signed to their practice squad.

The Colts signed Carter to a contract back in 2015, but he was, unfortunately, cut loose over a month ago before signing on with the Saints a few weeks later. New Orleans brought Carter back on a one-year deal back in February of last year, only to place him on waivers with an injury designation this summer.

The Saints eventually released Carter from injured reserve in October.

In 2015, Carter appeared in three games but did not record a single statistic.
