Miami Dolphins shore up receiver room with signings

In need of some bodies in the room after the opting-out of Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns, the Miami Dolphins have signed Ricardo Louis and Chester Rogers for 2020. The 26-year-old Louis was waived by the Dolphins on July 25th, while Rogers, also 26, spent the first 4 years of his career with the Colts.

Louis spent the first three years of his career with the Browns after being selected in the fourth round of the 2016 draft. He made 45 catches for 562 yards in his time with Cleveland. He missed the entire 2019 season with a knee injury, and while he is a long shot to make the opening-day roster he will at minimum make an experienced pair of hands during camp.

Miami Dolphins adding bodies

Chester Rogers signed with the Colts as an UDFA in 2016 and had 111 catches for 1,221 yards and 5 touchdowns. A possession receiver more than an explosive option Rogers profiles more as an Allen Hurns replacement. Rogers has more of a shot at sticking with the Miami Dolphins owing to his consistency, and the fact he fills a role not over populated by Dolphins receivers.

The Miami Dolphins have a roster full of young, shifty, explosive receivers but these moves add a bit of experience and a little more versatility to the skills on offer. While either is expected to make the final roster, they add good camp depth and a good insurance policy in case of injury or players not performing as expected.
