Marlon Moore has re-signed with the Miami Dolphins after appearing in six games for the San Francisco 49ers.
He will assume Ryan Spadola’s spot as the fourth receiver. Spadola could be re-signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers, but he may opt to return to the Jets as he claimed that he was unaware of Jets interest in him when he opted for the Dolphins practice squad after he was released off of their 53 man roster.

Moore, 26, has a strong reputation on special teams and earned two starts at wide receiver as a Dolphin last season, when he contributed six catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. He had similar production as a rookie in 2010. This season he has made one catch for six yards and rushed once for nine yards.
This is a solid move by Miami as Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore already have developed chemistry with him. He should have a great week of practice and be ready for Monday Night Football.
In other news, the Miami Dolphins have added guard David Arkin to the 53 man roster. He must remain, by rule, with the team for at least three weeks as he was claimed from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
The move is an indication that the team anticipates to need an extra guard for at least that long.
Somebody will have to be released in order to make room, or he may take Jonathan Martin’s spot as the team could place him on the reserve list and still have a chance to activate him at a later date, if and when he is cleared to return.
Some sources are claiming that Richie Incognito has played his last game as a Dolphin, but it would not be altogether surprising to see both players back on the roster by season’s end as the team is not deep at their positions.
Neither player would be wise to test the free agent market after this fiasco, so all parties may decide to make it work.
