Scarlett has been cut from the Dolphins' practice squad, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Following the move, Miami's 53-man roster includes fellow running backs Myles Gaskin, Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed. Scarlett, a 2019 fifth-rounder, logged four carries for nine yards in nine games during his rookie season with Carolina, but didn't suit up for any NFL regular-season action in 2020.
The Dolphins signed Scarlett to the practice squad Thursday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Scarlett spent the offseason with Miami, and he will get a chance to continue developing with the team as a member of the practice squad. Running backs Patrick Laird and Gerrid Doaks were also inked to the scout team.
The Dolphins waived Scarlett on Monday. Scarlett's only NFL regular-season action came in 2019 for the Panthers, when he appeared in nine games and registered four carries for nine yards. The 25-year-old spent the majority of last season on the Lions' practice squad and will likely have to settle for a similar role for the 2021 campaign.
The Dolphins signed Scarlett to a reserve/future contract Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Scarlett didn't appear in a regular-season game in 2020, but he did spend time on the Lions' practice squad. The former Florida Gators standout will now get an opportunity to compete for a depth role with Miami this offseason.
Detroit signed Scarlett to the practice squad Wednesday. The Lions cut running back Dalyn Dawkins from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Scarlett appeared in nine games with the Panthers as a rookie last year, but he only touched the ball four times on offense. He'll work to develop in Detroit.
