DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Receiver Allen Hurns, coming back from a gruesome leg injury, has signed a $3 million, one-year contract with his hometown team, the Miami Dolphins.

Hurns broke his left ankle in the playoffs last season with Dallas. He was released by the Cowboys on Wednesday, tried out with the Dolphins on Thursday and signed before Friday's practice, the second of training camp.

A Miami native who played for the Hurricanes, Hurns has 23 touchdown catches in five NFL seasons, but he made only 20 receptions for 295 yards for the Cowboys last year.

Hurns bolsters the Dolphins' deepest position on offense. Their receiving corps also includes Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant.
