The Dolphins added two more rookie free agents on Tuesday, signing Arizona State defensive end Gannon Conway and Tulane tailback Orleans Darkwa.

Conway (6-4, 280) started every game for the Sun Devils in 2013, recording 38 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Overall, he notched 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks in three seasons with Arizona State.

In four seasons with the Green Wave, Darkwa (6-0, 210) rushed for 2,957 yards and 39 touchdowns on 663 carries. He also caught 77 passes for 595 yards.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean, Darkwa also had an invitation to attend the Titans’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

In another roster move Tuesday, the Dolphins waived punter Matt Szymanski, a first-year pro from SMU.

    can we stop with the overkill of articles? He’s a 7th round draft pick after all. No one cares about this except the people trying to make money off it

    Orleans Darkwa is NOT the best name in the league . . . in fact , it’s not even the best name of an undrafted free agent signed by Miami . . .
    that honor would have to go to WR Rantavious Wooten.

    Gotta watch what you talk about in communist Dolphins land.

    Stephen Ross is forming another committe looking into speech clarity and abuse by tongue avoiding all sorts of dribble. Meanwhile the head coach snoozes.

    Gannon Conway is a great football name. Next year the best football name will be Denzel Perryman.

    with those names, i’d want both on my fantasy teams if they were #1’s.

    a team of jedi knights will always dominate fantasy football.
