Allen Hurns didn't take long to catch on with another team.

Officially released Wednesday by the Cowboys, Hurns signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins, Miami announced Friday. His new deal is worth up to $3 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported per a source informed of the situation.

Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Cowboys would be parting ways with Hurns following just one season in Dallas that ended with a hard-to-watch ankle injury in the NFC Wild Card Round against the Seahawks.

By Rapoport's account, Hurns' ankle is ready to go and his quick signing by the Dolphins would support that.

Heading into his sixth season, Hurns, who had a 1,000-yard season in 2015 with Jacksonville, joins a Dolphins receiving corps that features likely starters Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker with Brice Butler in the slot and the explosive Albert Wilson returning from injury.

The Dolphins also activated safety T.J. McDonald off the physically unable to perform list.

Here is other roster news we're tracking Friday:

1. Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is off the physically unable to perform list and back at practice Friday.

2. Cornerback Mike Hughes, tight end David Morgan and receiver Brandon Zylstra were placed on the active/physically unable to perform list by the Minnesota Vikings on Friday.
