Quarterback Mike White will have a familiar face in the Miami locker room.

Miami has agreed to sign receiver/return specialist Braxton Berrios to a one-year deal, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Berrios was released by the Jets late last week. He caught just 18 passes for 145 yards and rushed for 91 yards with two TDs last season. He averaged 11.4 yards on 21 punt returns and 23.1 yards on 26 kick returns.

Berrios was a Pro Bowler in 2021 after he averaged a league-high 30.4 yards per kick return and 13.4 yards per punt return. He’s caught 107 passes for 1,085 yards with five touchdowns over the past four seasons.

It’s a homecoming of sorts for Berrios, as he played his college ball at the University of Miami.

  1. Solid. Helps in the slot and in the return game. You can never have too many of these grinders.

  2. Could be a sneaky good signing for the Fish. Loved him with the Jets and wish we could have found a way to keep him.

  3. BB did a lot of good things for gang green…however he should’ve held on to the TD catch vs. Minn last year ugh.

  4. I actually LOVE this signing.. 1) He’s a ‘cane so welcome home buddy 2) The Dolphins had one of the worst special teams in the league last year because they basically ignored it. I think they were the only team in the NFL without a designated return specialist, he solves that. Working with Wes Welker will also improve his slot skill greatly.. he will be a great 4th/5th WR… love this signing

  5. Good signing. Should help out in the WR room and can take over return duties from Mostert. Curious as to what Miami is going to do with Cedric Wilson? Is he trade bait? He didn’t get many looks last year due to Waddle and Hill soaking up the targets and only fielded a handful of punts.
