Dolphins waived WR Julius Pruitt and LB Michael Clay.
Signed on July 30, Pruitt ended up catching just one preseason pass. This was the fourth straight camp Pruitt has spent with the Dolphins, but he remains stuck on nine regular season appearances, zero of which came in 2012. Pruitt turns 28 in December. Tue, Aug 27, 2013 03:04:00 PM

Dolphins signed WR Julius Pruitt.

Pruitt beat out Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson for a roster spot. The move does not speak well to Collie and Robinson's health. A training camp lifer in Miami, all nine of Pruitt's career appearances came in 2011. His signing is a band aid until Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) returns.

Dolphins worked out free agent WR Julius Pruitt.

Pruitt has spent each of the past three camps with the Dolphins, but has appeared in only nine regular season games, notching zero catches. He'd be more of a camp body than solution to the Dolphins' fourth and fifth receiver woes.

Dolphins waived WR Julius Pruitt.

A former undrafted free agent out of small-school Ouachita Baptist, Pruitt was in the running for the Dolphins' No. 5 receiver job, but caught just one pass for nine yards in his final two preseason games after making six grabs for 52 yards in the exhibition opener. Pruitt is a fairly quick slot receiver type. It's still a poor sign for his future that he couldn't make it past first cuts in an incredibly weak Dolphins wide receiver corps.

Julius Pruitt appears to have the edge on Marlon Moore, Clyde Gates and Hard Knocks star Chris Hogan for the Dolphins' fifth wide receiver spot.

Undrafted out of tiny Ouachita Baptist, Pruitt has spent much of the past two years on Miami's practice squad. The speedy Pruitt has seen quite a bit of time behind Davone Bess in the slot, but his primary contribution has been on special teams.

Dolphins promoted WR Julius Pruitt from their practice squad.

The speedster replaces WR Marlon Moore, who was placed on injured reserve. He will focus mostly on special teams and is not on the fantasy radar.

The Dolphins are expected to give WR Julius Pruitt a legitimate chance to make the team in training camp.

He was signed off the team's practice squad on December 31. The owner of some blazing speed, he should challenge Marlon Moore for Miami's fifth and final receiver spot this summer.

Dolphins promoted WR Julius Pruitt from their practice squad.

A second-year undrafted free agent, Pruitt played college football at little known Ouachita Baptist and ran a forty in the 4.4-flat range coming out. The Dolphins will carry him on the 80-man roster this offseason.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly expects WR Julius Pruitt to get called up to the 53-man roster if Brandon Marshall (questionable, hamstring) is sidelined.

Marshall is expected to play, so it might be a while before we see Pruitt on the field. The second year pro has yet to be active for an NFL game.
