MIAMI (AP) — Receiver Ricardo Louis signed a one-year contract Monday with his hometown team, the Miami Dolphins, after missing the entire 2018 season following neck surgery.

The Dolphins were also allocated Brazilian defensive tackle Durval Queiroz Neto (Dur-VAHL' KEY'-ay-royce NAY'-toh) via the NFL's international pathway program. Queiroz spent the past four seasons on two of Brazil's best teams — Cuiabá Arsenal and Galo FA — and played for the national team.

Louis was released last week by the Cleveland Browns. They made him a fourth-round draft pick in 2016, and he had 45 catches for 562 yards and no scores in his first two NFL seasons.

Louis was born in Miami and played in high school at Miami Beach before attending Auburn.
