WR Patrick Turner: Dolphins Sign Two Draft Picks


Posted Jul 2, 2009



The Miami Dolphins have agreed to terms with two more selections from the 2009 draft.

According to a league source, third-round pick Patrick Turner agreed to a four-year, $2.464 million deal, which includes a signing bonus of $714,000. The Palm Beach Post first reported Turner agreed to a deal.

The 6-5, 223-pound receiver was a four-year letterman and two-year starter at Southern California. Turner finished his collegiate career with 138 receptions for 1,752 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Turner struggled to get separation against defensive backs during Senior Bowl week. However, Turner does use his large frame well and should at least be a solid red zone target for the Dolphins this season, but he'll have to prove he can get off of press coverage in order to gain a significant role.

The team also agreed to terms with seventh-round pick J.D. Folsom. According to a league source, it's a four-year, $1.812 million deal, which includes a signing bonus of $62,000.

The 6-3, 230-pound linebacker was a two-year letterman at Weber State where he finished his collegiate career with 179 tackles, 5.5 sacks and one interception. Folsom attended Salmon, High School in Salmon, ID where he played quarterback and linebacker. He also was a national qualifier in team roping on the high school rodeo team.

Miami still has five out of their nine selections that have yet to agree to contract terms.
