Dolphins add two to secondary

By James Walker

The Miami Dolphins have two new additions to their secondary. The Dolphins claimed cornerback Sammy Seamster from the Baltimore Ravens and safety Brandian Ross from the Oakland Raiders off waivers Sunday, Miami general manager Dennis Hickey announced.

Miami had just four cornerbacks after cutting down to its 53-man roster. This is a valuable position where depth is needed. Seamster will be the fifth cornerback behind starters Brent Grimes, Cortland Finnegan and second-year backups Jamar Taylor and Will Davis.

Ross replaces safety Don Jones, who was cut Sunday. The Dolphins have their starting safety – Reshad Jones – currently serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Miami also cut receiver Damian Williams.
