The Miami Dolphins made a flurry of free agent signings Thursday.

NFL Network reported that Miami signed former Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller to a one-year deal in the $10 million range.

Former Baltimore Ravens center Matt Skura agreed to a one-year deal, according to his agent David Canter.

The Dolphins also confirmed the signings of quarterback Jacoby Brissett, running back Malcolm Brown, wide receiver Robert Foster and cornerback Justin Coleman.

Terms of the deals were not immediately available.

Fuller, 26, set career highs with 53 receptions, 879 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games in 2020. He missed the final five games after receiving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He will complete the punishment by sitting out Week 1 of the 2021 season.
