The Dolphins re-signed veteran RB Larry Johnson on Thursday and waived OG Ray Feinga. Johnson was in camp with Miami before being cut last weekend.
An eighth-year veteran, Johnson played in just two games last season with the Redskins. He hasn't played all 16 games in a season since 2006, when he rushed for 1,789 yards and 17 scores for the Chiefs. In 2005-2006, Johnson was one of the game's elite backs, but injuries have hampered his career since.
Feinga, a reserve guard, played in three games last season.
Johnson joins a running back corps that includes Reggie Bush, rookie Daniel Thomas and Lex Hilliard.
The way we see it
Bringing Johnson back appears to be a sign that Thomas simply isn't as ready as the Dolphins were hoping for his first NFL action. When he was drafted, Thomas looked like a 200-plus carry type of back, but he struggled in the preseason. Johnson provides the team with a big back who will likely be used near the goal line, it's just a question of how much he can contribute at this point in his career.
