The Dolphins are signing running back Samaje Perine off the Bengals’ practice squad, Ian Rapoport of the NFL reports.

Perine played five offensive snaps and 104 on special teams this season for the Bengals.

The Bengals waived him Oct. 15 and re-signed him to the practice squad two days later.

The Dolphins, who traded running back Kenyan Drake to the Cardinals in October, have had a turnstile at the position this season. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is their leading rusher with 228 yards and three rushing touchdowns on 49 carries.

Myles Gaskin, who led the team with 16 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown Sunday, has an ankle injury.

Perine ran for 603 yards as a fourth-round rookie in Washington in 2017. He played only sparingly in 2018 before Washington waived him and the Bengals claimed him at the end of the preseason this year.

  1. Forget that RB they need to trade with the Bengals for that CB #24Darius Phillips. He has an INT matched up against Parker and gave Parker fits all game. He looks like he may be a solid/good young player to go after via trade. The Dolphins have plenty of draft picks use one(3rd rd or lower) to bring this kid to Miami immediately!! I believe this guy has star potential….a solution to the opposite CB from Howard.

  2. Parker still owned him, but Miami has plenty to choose from next year for DB
    What they need is a pass rush, it is horrible and more and more PI and defensive holding will be called against them until they get someone to pressure the QB.
    What happened to Charles Harris?????? Wasn’t he supposed to take over for Wake!?!?!?
    This draft we need to fill so many spots I say trade a few picks and load the roster with people to fill holes.
    We have Rosen and crazy legs Fitz for next season under contract. That is all we need. Then next season trade up to get Trevor Lawrence at QB
    Too many holes to fill to throw all those eggs into the one QB pick that may or may not be a bust.
    Unless they can get the kid from LSU I say pass on a QB until next draft.

  3. @finzfan49. Parker owned Bengals cb #22&#23 all day. Parker was shut down by #24. Fitzpatrick didn’t complete a pass throwing in #24 direction. Fitzpatrick throw @ him twice when he was guarding Parker. The 1st pass was INT and the 2nd nearly picked …#24 had his hands on the pass once again just couldn’t make the catch. #24 didnt come in the game until the 3rd qtr when #22 got hurt. But he shut Parker and every body else he was guarding. Like i said earlier #24Phillips did NOT have a pass completed against him and had ann INT nearly a 2nd one plus several pass break up
