Adolphus Washington is getting another shot in the NFL.

The former Ohio State defensive tackle signed with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, the team announced. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Washington's contract with the Dolphins is a one-year deal.

Washington had been a free agent since being waived by the Cincinnati Bengals in April. 

A third-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Washington spent two-plus seasons with the Buffalo Bills before being waived by the team that drafted him last September. He is now on his third NFL team.

In three NFL seasons, Washington has appeared in 35 games and recorded 62 total tackles with 4.5 tackles for loss and three pass deflections.

With the signing of Washington, the Miami Dolphins now have four former Ohio State players on their roster: 2017 draft pick Raekwon McMillan, 2018 draft pick Jerome Baker, 2019 draft pick Isaiah Prince and Washington.
