Brian Flores continues to add former Patriots to both his coaching staff and team.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, cornerback Eric Rowe is signing a one-year, $3.5 million max deal with the Dolphins. The 26-year-old spent the last three seasons with the Patriots, but struggled to stay on the field due to injuries. Over the three years, he played in just 21 games.

Last season, he played four games before being played on injured reserve with a groin injury.

When active, Rowe was a solid No. 2 and 3 corner. The Patriots will certainly need to look to add depth at this position, which could include bringing back Jason McCourty. 

Rowe will join Dwayne Allen, who signed with Miami over the weekend, and then there are a few coaches on the staff with Patriots ties.
