MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins continued the free agent signing bonanza Friday by securing the services of wide receiver Brandon Gibson.

“We are happy that Brandon is joining the team,” said Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland. “Coupled with the earlier addition today of Dustin Keller, we feel that we have added some very good pieces to our passing game.”

Ireland has gone all-in on the free agents this week and has signed wide receiver Mike Wallace, tight end Dustin Keller, linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Phillip Wheeler, and the aforementioned Gibson.

Gibson was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 out of Washington State, but he made his name last year in St. Louis. For his career, Gibson has 174 receptions for 2,090 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2012, Gibson had 51 receptions for 691 yards and five touchdowns.

“I watched tons of film, and I really think he’s going to be one of the better young QBs in the NFL,” Gibson told the Palm Beach Post’s Ben Volin.

The Dolphins may be nearing the end of the free agent spending spree, but the Fins are still holding out hope that left tackle Jake Long may decide to return to the tam. According to the Post, Long was not happy with what the Rams offered him.
