The Dolphins have a new punter, signing Jake Bailey, formerly of the New England Patriots, to replace Thomas Morstead, who joined the Jets on Friday.

Some of the circumstances surrounding how Bailey landed in Miami remain unclear.

Bailey, 25, was New England's fifth-round pick in 2019 out of Stanford and was the All-Pro punter in 2020 with a league-high 45.6 net average and 48.7 average per punt. Last August, he signed a four-year, $13.5 million extension with the Patriots that made him one of the NFL's top-paid punters.
