Roth, Vickerson agree to deals with Dolphins

DAVIE, Fla. (July 24, 2005) -- Miami Dolphins rookies Matt Roth and Kevin Vickerson agreed to deals, leaving former Auburn running back Ronnie Brown as the team's only unsigned draft pick going into the first training camp practice July 25.

Brown, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, is waiting to sign after top choice Alex Smith reaches an agreement with the San Francisco 49ers.

Roth, a defensive end and second-round pick, signed a five-year deal. Vickerson, a defensive tackle and seventh-round choice, signed for two years.

Also signed was veteran receiver Danny Farmer, who didn't play last season. The Dolphins waived defensive end Vann Brown and safety Atari Bigby, both signed as undrafted college free agents, and released cornerback Brandon Haw.

Safety Chris Akins, defensive tackle Larry Chester, linebacker Eddie Moore and cornerback Will Poole were placed on the active-physically unable to perform list.

Vickerson and cornerback Shirdonya Mitchell went on the active-non-football injury list. Tackle Tony Pape went on the reserve-did not report list.
