Dolphins sign running back Mark Walton

Dolphins sign running back Mark Walton”

Walton was arrested three different times in 2019 and faced various charges before the Bengals cut ties.

He is facing a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon along with three misdemeanor charges: resisting an officer without violence, marijuana possession and reckless driving from the March 12 incident, a battery charge in the February 16 case, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana from the January 16 arrest. He has yet to publicly address the charges.

Walton tried out this week, when coach Brian Flores said he was aware of the legal issues. "We wanted to definitely take a look at him and see if he was a fit for us on the field (and) off the field". I think he's done a good job really in the one day that he's been here.

"Again, it's a tryout", Flores said. Trying to leave a lasting mark with them. But I know what I got to do while I'm here. "It was discussed. Obviously [general manager] Chris [Grier], myself, [vice president] Brandon [Shore], our staff". "And just that's kind of part of the process".

"I don't want to judge people based on one incident [or] two incidents", Flores told reporters. It remains to be seen if he actually makes the roster.

Walton, the talented ex-Miami Hurricanes running back, signed with the Dolphins Sunday, having impressed the organization both on the field and off during his weekend tryout.

But the Dolphins are willing to give Walton another chance.

He was released by the Bengals two days after his third arrest, with Bengals coach Zac Taylor saying the team needed to more forward without him.
