The Miami Dolphins signed defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche on Thursday and placed the former first-round pick on the physically unable to perform list.

The 24-year-old is still recovering from surgery last December to repair a torn ACL.

It is a one-year deal worth $1.16 million, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported.

Nkemdiche was waived by the Arizona Cardinals on July 28 after failing a physical. He registered 4.5 sacks and 44 tackles in 27 games (six starts) over three seasons in Arizona.

Nkemdiche was drafted 29th overall out of Mississippi in 2016.
