The Miami Dolphins made another acquisition to their receiver corps Thursday evening. The team signed veteran receiver Damian Williams to a one-year, $800,000 contract, according to a source.

Williams, a former third-round pick spent the previous four seasons with the Tennessee Titans. His best year was in 2011, when he caught 45 receptions for 592 yards. However, Williams caught a career-low 15 receptions for 178 yards in 10 games last season.

With that in mind, let's update Miami's depth at wide receiver:
The Dolphins have plenty of depth with eight wide receivers. The team signed Williams, Cone and Rios in free agency. Gibson and Binns also are returning from a pair of season-ending knee injuries.

Wallace and Hartline are locks as starters. Matthews, Gibson and Williams will all compete for backup roles in new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor's scheme. Barring injury, Binns, Cone and Rios will compete for roster spots.
