The Dolphins signed defensive tackle AJ Francis off the Patriots practice squad on Tuesday.

It's a homecoming of sorts for Francis, who spent training camp with the Dolphins but was released and then nabbed by New England. Miami likely would have tried to keep the 6-foot-5, 315-pound defensive tackle for their practice squad, but the Patriots signed him after his Aug. 31 release.

After moving defensive back Justin Green to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Patriots now suddenly have room for a couple of additions to their practice squad.
