Dolphins' Alterraun Verner: Signs with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verner was signed by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Verner was released by the Buccaneers in February after notching a career-low 16 tackles in 16 games throughout the 2016 season. He also added just 11 total passes defensed and two interceptions during the last two seasons combined. He'll have a solid shot at making the Dolphins' final roster, but Byron Maxwell (ankle), Xavien Howard and Bobby McCain will likely be ahead of Verner on the Week 1 depth chart.

Buccaneers' Alterraun Verner: Will be released Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verner will be released by the Buccaneers on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Verner would have been owed $6.5 million in 2017. He saw a reduced workload in 2016 compared to his first two seasons in Tampa Bay, recording only 16 tackles compared to 76 and 56 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. A big reason for this regression was the emergence of rookie Vernon Hargreaves, who took over as the starting corner opposite Brent Grimes last season and racked up 76 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. Verner still has value as a defender, and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.

Buccaneers' Alterraun Verner: Returns to practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verner (personal) returned to practice Friday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran corner returned to the team after missing the first two practices of the week due to his father's funeral services in California. While he should be able to suit up against the high-octane Saints passing attack Sunday, rookie Javien Elliott would be available to step in for him if necessary.

Buccaneers' Alterraun Verner: Will return to practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verner is expected to be absent from practice until Friday as he tends to personal matters, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

Verner is coming off of his first start since Week 2 in Sunday's win over the Chargers. He tallied two tackles in the victory. While his absence from practice will certainly affect his preparation for Week 14, he figures to return to his usual role with the club.

Buccaneers' Alterraun Verner: Grabs interception in tribute Week 12 effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verner (personal), who lost his father on Friday, was credited with two solo tackles and also picked off Russell Wilson in Sunday's 14-5 win over the Seahawks.

The veteran was playing with a heavy heart but had pledged to dedicate the game to his late father, and he came through with a fitting tribute. Verner picked off a late second-quarter pass intended for Paul Richardson at the Bucs' 15-yard line, returning it 16 yards and denying Seattle a field goal attempt at a minimum. It was the seventh-year pro's first interception of the season, as he continues to serve as the third corner behind starters Brent Grimes and rookie Vernon Hargreaves.
