Fins snag reserve DT Gaston after stint with Patriots


The Miami Dolphins were been awarded defensive tackle Bruce Gaston (New England Patriots) off waivers Thursday.

To make room on the roster for Gaston, the team waived safety Brandian Ross.

The 6-foot-2, 310-pound, Gaston joins Miami from the Patriots after being claimed off waivers by New England at the end of August. Prior to his pit stop in New England, he spent the 2014 offseason with the Arizona Cardinals.

The undrafted free agent was a four-year letter winner at Purdue and saw action in 50 consecutive games for the Boilermakers, with 44 of those in a starting role. He compiled 131 total tackles, seven sacks, four fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.
