The Dolphins tendered Ford to a one-year contract Thursday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Ford performed admirably when called upon as Miami's No. 3 receiver down the stretch of the 2019 campaign, hauling in 21 catches for 235 yards across the final four weeks of the season. He stands to compete with the likes of Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Albert Wilson for reserve snaps in 2020.
Ford secured seven of nine targets for 54 yards in the Dolphins' 27-24 win over the Patriots on Sunday.
Analysis: Ford was working as the No. 3 wideout Sunday with Allen Hurns (ankle/neck) out of action, and the third-year receiver put his opportunity to good use. Ford's reception and target totals checked in behind only those of DeVante Parker's for the Dolphins on the afternoon, and his final grab of the day, a five-yard catch with 29 seconds remaining down to the Patriots' four-yard line, set up the eventual game-winning touchdown to Mike Gesicki. The Virginia Tech product heads into the offseason with momentum, finishing the campaign with 21 receptions (29 targets) for 235 yards over his last four contests.
Ford is in line to serve as the team's No. 3 receiver with Allen Hurns (ankle/neck) inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Analysis: Ford was productive in the Week 16 overtime win against the Bengals, bringing in five of six targets for 68 yards. He'll have a chance to build on his production Sunday with Hurns out of action, although he'll face one of the toughest secondaries in the league in that of the Patriots' shutdown unit.
Ford caught five of six targets for 68 yards during Sunday's 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals.
Analysis: Ford saw increased work in three-receiver sets after Allen Hurns (shoulder) exited Week 16's contest, resulting in an uptick in target volume behind DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson. The third-year pro has flashed down the stretch when injuries to Miami's top wideouts allow him to play a larger role, but he'll be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes until such time as he climbs the depth chart.
Ford caught six of nine targets for 92 yards in Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Ford led the team in targets, catches and receiving yards, taking over as Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target after DeVante Parker exited with a concussion. With a matchup against the vulnerable Giants secondary in Week 15, Ford could turn into an intriguing streaming option if Parker sits out.
The Dolphins promoted Ford to the active roster Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: After placing Jakeem Grant (ankle) on IR, the team brought up Ford to add depth to the receiver rotation. It looks like Albert Wilson (ribs) could play Sunday against the Eagles, and if he does, Ford will work as the No. 4 wideout.
Ford caught two of three targets for nine yards during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers.
Analysis: Ford was promoted from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's contest to provide Miami's wide receiver corps with some depth. Albert Wilson (hip/calf), Jakeem Grant (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (concussion) all still nursing injuries. If the Dolphins' receivers aren't able to get healthy during the team's bye week, Ford could be in line for notable opportunities on offense behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.
Ford was signed to the Dolphins' 53-man roster Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The 23-year-old spent the preseason with the Dolphins and joined the team's practice squad after failing to survive roster cutdowns at the start of September, but he'll make his way to the active roster ahead of Week 4. Ford could serve as Miami's No. 4 wide receiver against the Chargers on Sunday should Albert Wilson (calf) and Allen Hurns (concussion) be unable to suit up.
The Dolphins signed Ford to the practice squad Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Ford was cut by the Dolphins this preseason but the team still appears somewhat open to him as a developmental prospect. The 2017 seventh-round pick will need to become a reliable special-teams asset for any chance of being promoted to Miami's active roster.
Ford was cut by the Dolphins on Sunday, per the league's official transactions log.
Analysis: A 2017 seventh-round pick, Ford never managed to carve out a role in Miami and now finds himself ousted by the team's new coaching staff. He could catch on as a contributor on special teams elsewhere in the league.
Ford was added to the active roster Wednesday
Analysis: Ford's promotion comes on the heels of the Dolphins placing Jakeem Grant (Achilles) on injured reserve. The second-year wideout should provide the position with some added depth and likely serve as a special teams contributor as well.
Ford caught one of two targets for five yards during Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.
Analysis: Ford seems to be over the shoulder injury he sustained in training camp, but the 2017 seventh-rounder still has work to do in order to make the final 53-man roster in Miami. His next chance to impress will come in next week's preseason game Saturday against the Ravens.
