Dolphins swipe Seahawks practice squad player

It was just two weeks ago that the Seattle Seahawks waived wide receiver Gary Jennings, who was then claimed by the Miami Dolphins. That move allowed Jennings to make his NFL regular season debut this past weekend, and on Tuesday reports emerged that the Dolphins are moving to add another former Seahawk.

Adrian Colbert had been on the Seattle practice squad for the past five and a half weeks after spending a week on the active roster back in September. At that time Field Gulls author Matty F. Brown took a look at what kind of player Colbert was, and what kind of player Miami is now getting.

With Miami signing him off of Seattle’s practice squad, he’s guaranteed to spend the next three weeks on the Dolphins 53 man roster, which will give Colbert four weeks of active roster service time between Seattle and Miami this season. That fact earns him a credited season, which in turn earns him an increased minimum salary if he is on a roster in 2020. In addition, it will leave him just two games shy of earning an accrued season, which would make him a restricted free agent for the 2020 season.

In any case, best of luck to Colbert in Miami, while the Seahawks will now look to fill the vacant spot on the practice squad.
