Former first-round draft pick Danny Watkins says he's grateful for a fresh start with the Miami Dolphins after being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Watkins signed a $555,000, one-year contract with Miami and joined the team Tuesday.
''It's the most exciting time in my life again,'' he said after practice. ''I've had a grin on my face since this morning. It's been great.''
Watkins, a guard, spent two seasons with the Eagles and started 18 games before losing his job early last year. He was a surprise choice with the 23rd overall selection at age 26 when the Eagles made him the oldest first-round pick at that time since 1980.
Watkins will provide depth behind starting guards Richie Incognito and John Jerry. Miami waived second-year center Josh Samuda.
