Dolphins add D-tackle, kicker to late-summer roster


The Miami Dolphins announced Monday they have signed defensive tackle Cory Grissom and kicker Jake Rogers.

The 6-2, 316-pound Grissom joins the Dolphins after spending offseason time with the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this year and reserve/injured time with the New England Patriots last season.

Grissom, an undrafted free agent out of South Florida, appeared in 46 collegiate games, in which he posted 105 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, three passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery for the Bulls.

The 6-2, 217-pound Rogers joins the Dolphins from the Cleveland Browns, where he spent a portion of the 2014 offseason prior to being released late last month. Rogers originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints after the 2011 NFL Draft and also spent reserve time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Washington Redskins.

Rogers completed his collegiate career as Cincinnati’s all-time leader in scoring with 339 points. He connected on 51 of 75 field-goal attempts and set a school record with 63 extra points in 2009.
