After moving starting running back Kalen Ballage to injured reserve and claiming RB Zach Zenner off waivers just two days ago, the Miami Dolphins have also signed center Evan Brown and were awarded wide receiver Mack Hollins off of waivers.
Brown is signed off of the New York Giants practice squad and made his NFL debut just less than one month ago. He made his debut on Nov. 10 against the New York Jets, but has been on the team since May 2018 after signing as an undrafted rookie out of Southern Methodist University in the American Athletic Conference.
Hollins was waived by the Philadelphia Eagles after their loss to Miami just last Sunday. He has played in 28 games (three starts) over two seasons with the Eagles. The fourth round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, has 26 career receptions for 351 yards and one TD across 2017 and 2019. Hollins missed the entire 2018 season as he was on IR with a groin injury.
Ken Crawley and Chris Reed waived
Crawley played in four games (two starts) for Miami this season and was acquired through waivers on Oct. 30 from New Orleans. He entered the NFL undrafted to the Saints in 2016 and spent three seasons with the team. In his career he has 43 games on his slate, with 25 starts, and has accumulated 134 total tackles (121 solo), to go along with 31 defensed passes and one interception.
Reed entered the NFL in May 2015 undrafted to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He signed as a free agent with Miami in March and played in five games (one start) this season. In his career, he has played in 30 games (nine starts).
What the WR depth chart looks like
Hollins is currently listed sixth on the team’s WR depth chart. However, he does join WR Trevor Davis as an acquisition to the team this week (Oakland). Davis played in two games this season with the Green Bay Packers and nine with the Raiders before landing on the Dolphins. The season-ending injuries to four Miami wideouts this season has prompted them to be heavily active on the waiver wire.
Hollins and Davis sit with fellow reserve Isaiah Ford, who was activated from the practice squad last week, and all sit behind the team’s three starters: DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns, in that order.
