Aaron Rodgers' brother wraps up Fla. tour in Miami


Aaron Rodgers' brother, Jordan, spent some time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars over the past year. Yet after being let go by both teams, he still can't get out of Florida.

The Miami Dolphins announced Thursday they signed the 25-year-old Rodgers, along with a pair of wide receivers in Kevin Cone and Michael Rios.

Rodgers, who went undrafted in 2013, is positioned for a training camp battle with Pat Devlin for the No. 3 job, assuming he makes it past OTAs and minicamp.

Miami's signing of the trio of reserve players comes a day after agreeing to terms with former Detroit Lions tackle Jason Fox.

Fox, who is a good fit in the Dolphins' system if he can stay healthy, will be penciled in to the right tackle spot but is certain to face competition in camp. He's also open to playing right guard, where Miami still has a need.

"I think I'm an athletic, smart, tough guy and I think I can pick up the offense well," Fox said. "I think I'll be able to run the zone-read and the things that they ask me to do I've done them in the past and I think I'll be able to execute it here."
