In a move that could be part roster improvement and part gamesmanship, the Dolphins signed linebacker Trevor Reilly off the Patriots’ practice squad today. To make room, they waived linebacker Zach Vigil.
Reilly played 29 games for the Jets over the 2014 and ’15 seasons, then got cut before the start of this year. He has not appeared in a game this season and spent the past nine weeks on the practice squad.
In addition to whatever Reilly might add on the field, he might have some insight that helps Miami prepare for its season finale against the Patriots. Depending on what happens this weekend, the Dolphins might need that game.
Vigil made Miami’s roster as an undrafted free agent last year and played every game as a rookie. He had 11 tackles in seven games this season after spending the first seven games while on the Non-Football Injury list.
