The Miami Dolphins are signing wide receiver LaRon Byrd to the practice squad, according to a report from the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson. No corresponding move has been announced to open the space on the practice squad.

Byrd was signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He appeared in four games his rookie season, but landed on injured reserve for the 2013 season due to concussion symptoms. This season, he has spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns, making one appearance with the Browns. He played seven snaps in the season opener for Cleveland against the PIttsburgh Steelers.

He has one career reception for eight yards.

At 6-foot-4, Byrd is the tallest wide receiver on the roster or practice squad for Miami. He is two inches taller than starter Brian Hartline and is tied with Dion Sims as the tallest of the receivers and tight ends.

Byrd played four years for the University of Miami from 2008 to 2011. He caught 106 passes for 1,254 yards and seven touchdowns.
