The Miami Dolphins activated wide receiver DeVante Parker from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.

The Dolphins also signed Sal Cannella and Kalif Jackson after fellow tight ends Mike Gesicki, Adam Shaheen and Cathan Carter were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday. The latter three players have been sidelined after Dolphins co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

Wide receiver Preston Williams has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. He also is on the PUP list.

Parker, 28, led the Dolphins in receptions (63) and receiving yards (793) last season to go along with four touchdowns. He has 298 catches for 4,212 yards with 22 touchdowns since being selected by Miami with the 14th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Cannella played collegiately at Auburn and Jackson was with Florida before transferring to Grambling.

Gesicki, 25, led the team with six touchdown receptions last season. His receptions (53) and receiving yards (703) trailed only Parker for the team lead.

Shaheen, 26, had 12 receptions for 150 yards and three touchdowns in 2020.

Carter, 27, had five catches for 53 yards in 15 games last season with the Cincinnati Bengals.
