The Dolphins have picked up a new punter.

Michael Palardy, who was cut by the Panthers last month, has signed with Miami, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Palardy, who was born and raised in South Florida, chose the Dolphins over a group of other interested teams that included the Bills, where he visited last week.

Last year Palardy didn’t play at all after tearing his ACL while playing basketball in the offseason, but he is expected to be 100 percent healthy for the 2021 season.

Matt Haack, who handled punting in Miami last year, becomes a free agent next week.

  1. Matt Haack did a great job with the Dolphins as all of the Special Teams were outstanding. I am not sure if his $2.1M salary was the reason, but if so I imagine saving a few bucks for the sake of stability and continuity is not worth the change. Palardy must be working for half that. Haack will be remembered as the Holder for a few fun trick plays.
