Elston signed a contract Wednesday with the Eagles.
After appearing in 14 games in 2017, Elston didn't see any NFL action during the most recent season. The 25-year-old will look to resurface in the league with the Eagles, with whom he appeared in one of those aforementioned 14 contests. Should he earn a roster spot with the Eagles heading into Week 1, Elston would likely see most of his action on special teams.
The Dolphins claimed Elston off waivers Friday.
Elston was waived by the Bills on Thursday, but found a new home quickly.

What Elston accomplished in his first career start was incredible, and the Bills likely never saw it coming either as even they released him back in September before picking him up again in early October. He earned his first start because Jordan Poyer (knee) was sidelined, and Poyer is expected back Thursday against the Jets. It'll be interesting to see if Elston will earn more responsibility going forward, or if he'll revert to his normal special teams duties.
