Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel and receivers coach Wes Welker are reuniting with a familiar face: former 49ers wideout Trent Sherfield is headed to Miami on a one-year deal, as reported by Tom Pelissero.

The Patriots aren’t done looking at cornerbacks after the signing of Terrance Mitchell. According to Mark Daniels, they’re also showing interest in a former Patriot, cornerback Justin Coleman. This move would certainly make sense, since the Patriots could use a little familiarity along with veteran depth. Coleman played for the Patriots from 2015-16, and also with Matt Patricia in Detroit from 2019-20.

According to Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus, the Patriots are still looking at free agents at positions of need, and ones easy to predict: wide receivers, cornerbacks, and tackles. They’ve already signed journeyman CB Terrance Mitchell to a one-year deal, but Kyed reports that “their work isn’t done adding veteran players.”
At tackle, they’ve already been reported to be exploring a trade for the Cowboys’ La’El Collins. They’ve also been linked to Allen Robinson at receiver.
