Dolphins re-sign Braxton Berrios. He joins Hill, Waddle, Ezukanma as veteran WRs on roster



As expected, the Dolphins re-signed wide receiver and primary returner Braxton Berrios to a one-year contract on Saturday, according to a league source.

The deal could be worth as much as $3 million, per his agents Drew Rosenhaus and Robert Bailey.

Berrios caught 27 passes (in 33 targets) for 238 yards and a touchdown last season and played 44 percent of the Dolphins’ offensive snaps.

But his role in the passing game diminished over the final three months of the season. Berrios had 16 targets in the first four weeks but just 17 the remainder of the season.

He returned 23 punts for 235 yards (a 10.2 average), which ranked 13th in the NFL. He also returned 18 kickoffs for 441 yards (a 24.5 average).

Berrios, 28, came to the Dolphins last season after four seasons with the Jets.


Berrios and third-year player Erik Ezukanma join starters Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as the veteran receivers under contract.

Robbie Chosen — who caught four passes for 126 yards and a touchdown for Miami last season — remains a free agent but was at team headquarters on Friday for a free agent visit.

Chase Claypool and River Cracraft remain free agents. Cedrick Wilson Jr. agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints on Friday.

Miami likely will sign at least two more veteran receivers, with Chosen and Cracraft remaining possibilities.

Keep in mind that some of the targets that went to backup wide receivers last season likely will go new tight end Jonnu Smith, who caught 50 of 70 targets for 582 yards as a member of the Atlanta Falcons last season.
