Before today's first practice, the Dolphins acquired former Raiders tight end Courtney Anderson off of waivers.
This is a solid move because the TE depth on the roster right now is bare. Anderson (6'6", 270 lbs.) has started 24 games over the past two seasons. Last season, he caught 25 passes for 285 yards and 2 TDs for an especially inept Oakland offense. He has great size and he will immediately push for a roster spot and could even replace Justin Peelle as the primary backup to David Martin. I think he'll make the team as the third TE at least.
The team also cut S David Lofton and activated DT Brian Soi from the non-football injury list.
