MIAMI (AP) — Free agent cornerback Justin Coleman agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins.

Miami also signed defensive tackle Adam Butler to a two-year deal. He started a total of 12 games the past four seasons with the New England Patriots.

Coleman, a six-year veteran, started five games for the Detroit Lions last year. He has also played for Seattle and New England and has made 29 career starts.

Coleman is expected to compete for playing time as a slot corner for Miami.

Butler started four games last year and had four sacks, including his career sack total to 15. His acquisition helps compensate for Miami’s loss of defensive tackle Davon Godchaux, who signed a two-year deal with the Patriots.
