Former Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple will look to continue his NFL career with the Miami Dolphins, as he signed a one-year deal with the team on Saturday, according to a report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Apple spent the last two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, and made an appearance in the team’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI. He started 18 games that season for the Bengals, recording 49 tackles, a pair of interceptions and fumble recovery.

After being drafted by the New York Giants with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Apple has also spent time with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers during what is quickly becoming a journeyman’s career in the NFL. In total, he has appeared in 88 games with 335 tackles, five interceptions, 51 pass breakups and seven forced fumbles.

Apple played at Ohio State from 2013-15, winning a national championship with the Buckeyes in the inaugural College Football Playoff. He played in 28 games with Ohio State, accruing 56 tackles (7.5 for loss) with four interceptions and 17 pass breakups.
