Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.
Huguenin, 24, wound up signing on with the Dolphins back in May after going undrafted out of Kentucky. He signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Dolphins and is set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.
The Dolphins waived Huguenin with an injury designation during the preseason before eventually cutting him loose with a settlement a week later.
During his college career, Huguenin recorded 97 tackles, five tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses.
