To make room on the roster for Cordova, the Dolphins placed offensive tackle Joe Toledo (foot) on their Reserve/PUP list. That means Toledo will be ineligible to return until after the sixth week of the regular season. Once he starts practicing, the Dolphins will have a three-week windown to decide whether to activate him or keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.
Cordova was a third-round draft choice of the Jaguars in 2004 after being a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection.
He spent his first two NFL seasons (2004-05) on Jacksonville's injured reserve list with a knee injury before playing in 13 games, all as a backup, last year.
Cordova recorded three tackles on defense and eight stops on special teams, where he also blocked a punt and recovered a blocked punt.
