The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent running back Sony Michel, the team announced Tuesday.

Michel’s deal is a one-year, $2.1-million contract, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The Los Angles Rams acquired the rusher in a trade with the New England Patriots ahead of the 2021 campaign.

The 27-year-old rushed for 845 yards, four touchdowns, and 4.1 yards per attempt in 17 games (seven starts) last season. He added 28 receptions for 128 yards on his way to earning his second Super Bowl ring.

Michel racked up 2,292 yards and 14 touchdowns while averaging 4.3 yards per carry over three seasons with the Patriots from 2018-20.

The 2018 first-round pick joins Raheem Mostert and Chase Edmonds among veteran tailbacks to sign with the Dolphins this offseason. Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin round out a crowded position group.
