Miami Dolphins sign LB Rey Maualuga, place WR Isaiah Ford on IR

Miami Dolphins sign LB Rey Maualuga, place WR Isaiah Ford on IR

Four days later the Dolphins announced the signing of Maualuga. Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke was Maualuga's linebacker coach at Cincinnati from 2014-15, so that could have been one of the determining factors in the signing. The Bengals released him in March. Miami had previously used the minimum salary benefit on cornerback Alterruan Verner, who was signed last month and will likely play a key role in the Dolphins secondary this season.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network previously reported the same $12 million annual figure for Pittsburgh's offer. Instead, Bell skipped training camp and hasn't signed his $12.1 million franchise tender. After the season, Bell could hit free agency or Pittsburgh could place the franchise tag on him for a second consecutive season. If they choose to do so, the former Michigan State running back's salary will increase to about $14.5 million for the 2018-19 season.

It was hardly surprising Hughton opted to make a change on the hour and former Leicester winger Anthony Knockaert was given a rousing reception on his introduction.

But, ahead of Sunday's clash with Newcastle - the Yorkshire outfit's first-ever Premier League home match - the former US worldwide has also emphasised his philosophy of "no points target, no place target, no limits". Subs: Quaner 5, Palmer 5, Hefele 5. Subs: Joselu 6, Diame 5, Murphy 5. Newcastle had to come out and play after that, and Benítez sent on Joselu in place of Gayle, only to see his new striker booked for following through on Lossl.
