The moves keep coming in free agency, with the latest being the announcements of the signings of kicker Jay Feely and the return of wideout Kelly Campbell, as well as the official departure of two former Dolphins.
As reported earlier on DolphinDigest.com, Randy McMichael rejoined Scott Linehan in St. Louis, and we now know he got a three-year deal. Also signing on Thursday was fullback Darian Barnes, who joined the New York as an unrestricted free agent.
Regarding McMichael, Linehan said the following in a team-released statement: "This has been in the works for a while. We even considered trading for him. He is an every-down tight end and a proven starter in the league. He does a lot of things well."
As for Feely and Campbell, they became the third and fourth players signed by the Dolphins on Thursday, following nose tackle Keith Traylor and former Bears safety Cameron Worrell.
Feely and Worrell joined David Martin and Joey Porter as free agents signed by the Dolphins this offseason.
Campbell, meanwhile, was out of football last season after getting a shot in training camp with the Dolphins. The former Vikings speedster saw his chances of making the team pretty much ruined by a leg injury that hampered him throughout training camp and the preseason.
