Another former Patriots player is joining a former Patriots coach.

Center Ted Karras has signed with the Miami Dolphins, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe.

The deal is reportedly worth one year and $4 million.

In Miami, Karras will be reunited with former Patriots assistant coach Brian Flores. He also joins former Patriot Kyle Van Noy, who agreed to terms with Miami on Monday.

Karras filled in as the Patriots starting center in 2019 after blood clots cost David Andrews his season during training camp. Andrews is still under contract for 2020, but it is not yet known if he is medically cleared to play.

A third generation NFL player and great-nephew of Hall of Famer Alex Karras, Ted was drafted by the Patriots in the sixth-round in 2016. He played in 60 of a possible 64 games during his time in New England, with 20 starts, including 15 last season.
