Sterup, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Nebraska back in 2017 but received an invite to participate in the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Chiefs later signed him to a three-year, $1.62 million contract before waiving him coming out of the preseason.
Sterup had brief stints with the Jets and Browns before signing on with the Dolphins in 2017. He returned to Miami as an exclusive rights free agent but was cut loose coming out of the preseason.
In 2018, Sterup appeared in six games for the Dolphins and made one start.
