Dolphins add two more former Cowboys; ink Wilford to four-year deal

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins acquired defensive tackle Jason Ferguson from Dallas in a trade, and signed free-agent tight end Sean Ryan, who was drafted by then-Cowboys coach Bill Parcells in 2004.

Parcells became the Dolphins' executive vice president of football operations in December and has since repeatedly raided the Cowboys to make hirings, including new head coach Tony Sparano.

The Dolphins also signed free-agent receiver Ernest Wilford to a four-year contract. He had a career-high 45 catches for 518 yards and three touchdowns last year with Jacksonville.

Ryan signed a one-year deal. The 6-5, 265-pound tight end spent the past two years with the New York Jets and has career totals of nine receptions for 90 yards.

The trade for Ferguson, 33, involved undisclosed draft choices. He has started 106 games, beginning his career with the Jets before joining Dallas in 2005.
