While the practise squad may not be the most prominent group on an NFL roster, the Miami Dolphins have proven this season that those individuals may be incredibly beneficial.
The Dolphins cut defensive end Big Kat Bryant off their practise squad on Tuesday, clearing the way for a signing.
Miami then worked out fullback Jake Bargas and tight end Josh Hokit.
Following the exercises, it was Bargas who was offered a contract.
Bargas, 25, attended the University of North Carolina before going undrafted in 2020.
The Minnesota Vikings signed him as a free agent following the draught and he spent his first two seasons primarily on the practise squad.
During the preseason, he also spent time with the Chicago Bears.
Hokit, 24, played for Fresno State in college before also going undrafted in 2020.
He signed with the San Francisco 49ers and spent the previous two seasons on their practise squad, as well as this preseason with the Arizona Cardinals.
