MIAMI -- Running back Jerome Messam, a 1,000-yard rusher in the Canadian Football League last year, has signed with the Miami Dolphins.
The Canadian Press reported that the 6-foot-3, 245-pound Messam signed a three-year deal.
Messam played the past two seasons in the CFL. With Edmonton last year, he had 195 carries for 1,057 yards, and 27 receptions for 248 yards.
A native Canadian, Messam played at Graceland College in Lamoni, Iowa.
The Dolphins have found talent in the CFL before, signing linebacker Cameron Wake in 2009. Wake has 28 sacks since signing with Miami.
