Dolphins bring in Arena League returner Cruz

The Miami Dolphins have signed an Arena League kick returner, and one familiar with new coach Adam Gase.

According to USA Today's Tom Pelissero, Miami is bringing in A.J. Cruz of the Arizona Rattlers, a 5-foot-9, 195-pound 25-year-old.

Via Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post:
Last year, Cruz was given a three-year contract by the Chicago Bears. Although he was later waived/injured, it appears Gase, then the Bears’ offensive coordinator, saw enough potential in Cruz to give him another shot at the NFL this summer.
