Dolphins add Jonas Gray to practice squad

Jonas Gray is back in Miami.

Gray, who was released by the Dolphins yesterday, will return to the team as part of the Dolphins’ practice squad, his agent told Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.

There was some talk that the Patriots might claim Gray on waivers. Gray played for the Patriots last year, and New England just lost running back Dion Lewis for the season to a torn ACL. But Gray went unclaimed, allowing the Dolphins to hang onto him.

Gray burst onto the scene with a 201-yard, four-touchdown game for the Patriots last year, but since then he hasn’t been much of a factor, either in New England or in Miami. In six games this season he has 31 carries for 122 yards and no touchdowns.

  1. Could have been a star, decided to cross Belichick. There are probably thousands of career tombstones out there with this epitaph.

  2. Doesn’t matter. any team can sign off another practice squad at any time. However, He just has to quit on the team and Belichek will sign him immediately. Past performances prove this.

  3. Talk about picking the wrong day to get to work late in the morning. Gray literally knows the exact time his career went into the pooper.

    Jonas Gray is a 3rd-down catch-and-run RB. Therefore he is not a replacement for Dion Lewis.

    Huh? Gray is a potential replacement for Blount, not Lewis. James White was always the Lewis back up.

    That’s exactly what Dion Lewis was. Jonas Gray is not that he’s a between the tackles 1st and 2nd down back.

  6. Jonas Gray is a decent-to-pretty-good NFL running back. When he overslept, he was doomed because Belichick considers him replaceable and loves LaGarrette Blount for some reason.

  7. Further proves how superior the patriots are compared to everyone else. {Except the Bears of course – FAN BIAS – don’t trip}. If I was an undrafted free agent I would claw to get to NE and do every single thing the coaches told me to do lol. Can’t think of another team that take more lower tier players and maximize so much production. Jonas gray learned a valuable lesson. Don’t cross a guy wearing a sweatshirt like that.

    Haters gonna hate but hope my Bears follow the patriot way. That’s the model.

    Now let’s hear all the trolls whine about cheating in 3. 2. 1…

    GATTICA!!!

  8. Hmmm. NE has a key RB go down. Two days later the fish release Gray. Dangling the bait. Perhaps they were hoping NE would pick up damaged goods and pay for them?

    How does release and practice squad work as far as PAY in the NFL? Was he literally out of an income as of yesterday? Is he making the same on the practice squad?

    Anyone know how Pay works?

    I assume you’re referring to Blount, right?

    Ahh … another whiner that manipulates the facts to fabricate a cheap shot against the Patriots.

    You do realize that Blount was waived by the Steelers and cleared waivers … which means that the Patriots had a chance to claim him … but passed on him. Then they signed him the next day.

    If that was a fabricated plan to snatch him from the Steelers, it would have to be the worst plan in the history of plans.

    But hey … why let the facts interfere with a good story!

  10. Can’t believe the Cowboys didn’t bring him in. Hopefully Stephen will be better at running the team. I can’t sit through another decade of a mediocre team.
