With the Miami Dolphins suddenly lacking in the depth department at the cornerback position, the team has dipped into the free agent pool and signed cornerback Jalil Brown to the team.
Brown, a former fourth-round draft pick of the Kansas City Chiefs, was drafted in 2011 and was released on September 1, 2013 during final cuts, He soon latched on with the Indianapolis Colts after veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne went on injured reserve, and was later released again.
The Dolphins initially signed Brown on December 16, 2013, just two days after being released by the Colts. Brown then found himself competing with the likes of Jamar Taylor, Cortland Finnegan, Jimmy Wilson and the now injured Will Davis for a spot on the Dolphins roster.
In training camp, Brown actually impressed with his ability to make plays in coverage/ He seemed to be on the verge of earning a spot on the team's 53-man roster, but an injury he suffered made him fall behind Taylor and Davis who were also impressing during the preseason as well as in camp.
Brown soon latched on with Indianapolis again on September 30, 2014, and was released again on November 4. Now the Dolphins are calling on Brown in a moment of crisis. His performance in training camp proved that Brown can play well, so he should be a valuable asset to the team now that Will Davis has gone down for the count.
