DAVIE - The Miami Dolphins have re-signed veteran receiver Marlon Moore to address the team's thinned out receiving corp.
Moore, who had spent his first three seasons with the Dolphins, wasn't re-signed this offseason. He ended up signing with the San Francisco 49ers and made it to the 53-man roster, but was released last week.
During the six games Moore played with the 49ers he caught one pass for six yards, and had one carry for nine yards. During his three seasons with the Dolphins Moore started two games, and caught 12 passes for 244 yards. The former Fresno State standout scored two touchdowns for the Dolphins.
The Dolphins are in need of receiver help because Brandon Gibson, the team's starting spot receiver, suffered a season-ending knee injury during the 27-17 loss to the Patriots.
Miami promoted Ryan Spadola up from the practice squad before Thursday night's 22-20 win over the Bengals, but the Dolphins released him to make room for Moore, whose experience, special teams prowess, and familiarity with the offense led to his return.
Spadola will likely return to Miami's practice squad, but must first clear waivers.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
