Patriots waived RB Jonas Gray.

The Patriots are reportedly "hoping" to land Gray on their practice squad. The powerful, one-cut runner had 142 yards on 37 carries this preseason. The move likely means Brandon Bolden has made the team.
Aug 30 - 12:04 PM

Jonas Gray rushed for 20 yards on nine carries in the Patriots' third preseason game.

Gray saw some work with the first-team offense on Friday night. A big (5-foot-10, 225), powerful back, Gray could function as the power runner in New England's offense if Stevan Ridley falters. Gray has 30 carries for 130 yards this preseason.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin wouldn't be surprised if either Jonas Gray or UDFA Stephen Houston made the Patriots' roster and played the "LeGarrette Blount role."

Gray (5-foot-10, 225) signed a futures deal in January after spending all of last season on the Ravens' practice squad. He was initially signed as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame by the Dolphins in 2012. Gray is a one-cut power back. Stevan Ridley should get the first crack at big-back duties.

Patriots signed RB Jonas Gray to a reserve/future contract.

Notre Dame product Gray shined in the preseason with his short-yardage prowess, but his game is otherwise limited. He outplayed Daniel Thomas throughout August. The Patriots have a growing fondness for power-oriented hammer backs like Stevan Ridley, LeGarrette Blount, and now Gray.
Jan 6 - 4:55 PM

Dolphins waived RB Jonas Gray.

Gray showed better tackle-breaking and short-yardage ability than Daniel Thomas in preseason games, but Thomas is a former second-round pick and Gray is a 2012 UDFA. So the Fins kept the player in which they had more invested. Gray does figure to clear waivers and has practice squad eligibility remaining.

Dolphins RB Jonas Gray rushed seven times for a team-high 41 yards and caught four balls for 35 yards in the Hall of Fame Game.

A thickly built (5'9/223) power back, Gray demonstrated surprising versatility on swing passes and checkdown receptions. He only had 11 career catches at Notre Dame. Gray was mixed in with the second-team offense after Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas departed, rotating with rookie Mike Gillislee. Gray is a prime practice squad candidate.

Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland mentioned second-year RB Jonas Gray as a potential No. 3 back behind Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas.

"We feel very good about Jonas Gray coming off the knee," Ireland said. "Then Mike Gillislee. There’s youth at the position. There’s special teams value there." A 2012 UDFA out of Notre Dame, Gray missed his first NFL season due to a right ACL tear suffered during his senior year. He's a one-cut power back and perhaps someone to monitor as a deep sleeper for 2013 fantasy football.

Dolphins RB Jonas Gray (NFI, knee) will resume practicing this week.

A one-cut power back who went undrafted this past April out of Notre Dame, Gray will probably have to show special teams chops for the Dolphins to formally activate him from the non-football/injury list. The Dolphins' current three-deep at tailback remains Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, and rookie Lamar Miller.

Dolphins placed RB Jonas Gray on the reserve/non-football injury list, making him ineligible for the first six regular season games.

A one-cut power back out of Notre Dame, Gray did not participate in training camp after tearing his ACL late in his senior season. He'll probably be "redshirted" for all of 2012 and compete for a roster spot next summer.

Dolphins signed Notre Dame RB Jonas Gray.

An undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, Gray was only featured during his senior season and amassed 791 rushing yards with 12 touchdowns. However, he suffered a torn right ACL with two games remaining in the season. Gray took part in some of the school's Pro Day activities but did not complete testing for scouts. The Dolphins may try to stash Gray on injured reserve for a season.
