The Miami Dolphins and wide receiver Chester Rogers reportedly agreed to a one-year contract Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the news, which comes days after Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson opted out of the 2020 season over COVID-19 concerns.

Rogers spent his first four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, recording 16 receptions for 179 yards and two touchdowns in 2019.

The Dolphins previously brought back Ricardo Louis, who the team initially cut in July when attempting to finalize its training camp roster.

Hurns and Wilson were expected to be integral parts of the offense. The pair combined for 75 receptions for 767 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. Preston Williams will be expected to take over a significant role behind DeVante Parker on the depth chart, and there's a void on the roster elsewhere Rogers could wind up filling.

Rogers is coming off a knee fracture suffered in December with the Colts, so his health will be paramount to him latching on the final roster.
