Former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jay Ratliff worked out for the Miami Dolphins on Friday, according to a league source.
He has also visited the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears.
The four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman was released by the Cowboys two weeks ago with the team citing a failed physical.
Ratliff was eligible to be activated from the reserve-physically unable to perform list, but hasn't played in a game since last November.
The Cowboys and Ratliff clashed about the extent of his injuries, which included a sports hernia that required surgery.
There was also a strained hamstring for the 32-year-old.
Last season, Ratliff reportedly had a heated exchange with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Ratliff was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge in January.
Ratliff was playing under a five-year, $40 million contract extension with his release causing $6.9 million in dead money for 2014.
It will be interesting to see if the Cincinnati Bengals take a look at Ratliff after losing Pro Bowl defensive tackle Geno Atkins for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
