The Dolphins announced Tuesday that they’ve signed cornerback Chimdi Chekwa and offensive tackle Sam Young.

As previously reported, the Dolphins released running back Isaiah Pead and offensive linemen Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas.

Young is on his fourth NFL stop. He’s played in 58 career games with the Bills, Cowboys and Jaguars. Chekwa spent the offseason and preseason with the Dolphins before being released in September; he last played a regular season game with the Raiders in 2014.

Chekwa signed after working out for the Dolphins Tuesday. The Dolphins also worked out six other players Tuesday: center Jake Brendel, offensive tackles David Foucault and Terry Poole, linebacker Trevor Reilly and defensive backs Darrin Walls and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.
