Lions claim former Dolphins DT Benito Jones

·1 min read

After all of the roster moves that the Miami Dolphins had made this week, a number of players were available to be claimed by other teams due to their lack of service time.

While there were many players who were successfully claimed, none by the Dolphins, Miami did have one player that they waived find a new home, as the Detroit Lions claimed defensive tackle Benito Jones.

Jone was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dolphins following the 2020 draft. He spent most of the last two seasons on Miami’s practice squad, but he performed well this preseason in a battle for a depth spot on the interior of their defensive line.

It’s unclear whether or not the Dolphins would’ve tried to bring him back on the practice squad if he had gone unclaimed, but now he will get a chance on an active roster for Dan Campbell’s team.
