The Miami Dolphins announced on Tuesday that they have signed veteran wide receiver Jabar Gaffney.

The signing of Gaffney, who was released by the New England Patriots this summer, highlighted a flurry of roster moves by the Dolphins on Tuesday.

The Dolphins also terminated the contracts of defensive lineman Andre Fluellen and wide receiver Legedu Naanee and waived/injured linebacker Mike Rivera.

Gaffney was a second-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2002, where he spent his first four seasons with the team. Gaffney has also played for the Patriots (2006-08) and Denver Broncos (2009-10) and last season with the Washington Redskins where he established career highs with 68 catches for 947 yards.
