The Dolphins have added a former Buccaneers player with Miami-area ties.

Miami has signed cornerback Anthony Gaitor, the club said Wednesday. A third-year pro from Florida International, Gaitor was waived by the Buccaneers in May.

Gaitor (5-10, 182) was a seventh-round pick of the Bucs in 2011. At the time, now-Dolphins G.M. Dennis Hickey was the Buccaneers’ college scouting director.

Gaitor appeared in 12 regular season games for Tampa Bay from 2011 through 2012, notching 12 tackles. He missed the 2013 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

A Miami native, Gaitor attended Miami Northwestern Senior High School, which has produced multiple players who have gone on to NFL careers, including Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

    Drop a Gaitor in a room full of Dolphins and there’s bound to be some bullying.

    Grimes is one of the best in the league and can mentor these young guys like jamar taylor, will davis and now gaitor. Cortland Finnegan is no scrub either. And with Reshad Jones/Louis Delmas roaming at safety, Dolphins secondary looks very promising.

    Who did they cut?

    CB Anthony Gaitor… TE Gator Hoskins… if they go head to head in practice…

    I like what Hickey is doing. I like it a lot. He is looking at every option, and creating real competition at most positions. Competition that will produce veteran casualties. A lot of guys are looking over their shoulder, this will be an awesome training camp. These small but important steps, in so many areas, will “hopefully” lead to a few great strides. A few great strides with an 8 and 8 team, may mean playoffs this year…

    This guy figures to really clamp down on receivers in coverage.

    Okay, they cut Cameron Marshall RB

    Haven’t been a Fins fan for a long time but..

    Another good signing.

    Thinking the Dolphins got best available GM in Hickey.

    Guys got a knack for mining talent, and should grow into the GM position.

    While I am leery of Hickey because he was the only guy desperate enough to work under Ross and PhilAponte, I’m willing to give him a chance. But I’m afraid he won’t get a fair one, as Philbin’s lack of leadership and coaching prowess may make him a one-and-done GM.

    Hickey hits and misses for me.
    Some of the draft picks are steals others are head scratchers.
    He started free agency nicely – but I sure wish he can get a little more experience and depth at the O-Line. We are screwed if a Pouncey or Albert get hurt for any period of time this upcoming season.

    I’m not worried about center as Garner has proven to be a solid backup but Tackle is a problem. I think McKinney would make a nice insurance policy.
