Wide receiver isn’t among the Dolphins’ top needs heading into free agency, but you can never have enough depth, so they signed one anyway Wednesday.
Christion Jones, a receiver and kick returner from Alabama, is back with the team, his representatives announced Wednesday.
Jones, who spent 2015 training camp with the Dolphins before being waived/injured in the last round of cuts, will likely compete for return duties again this summer.

Jones averaged a team-best 18 yards per punt return in the preseason last year. He also caught one pass for 10 yards.
With Rishard Matthews likely to sign elsewhere in the coming days and Matt Hazel having done little to stand out in his first two years in the league, the Dolphins will certainly look for bottom-of-the-roster help at receiver in 2016.
