The Miami Dolphins have re-signed quarterback Josh Freeman, reports Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. 

The Dolphins released Freeman on July 24 after signing him to a one-year contract in April. He's now with the team again in time for training camp and is expected to compete with Matt Moore for the backup quarterback job. 

Miami's general manager, Dennis Hickey, was Tampa Bay's director of college scouting when the Buccaneers selected Freeman in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft. Freeman's best year as a pro came in 2010, when he started all 16 games for Tampa Bay and posted a 95.9 passer rating. 

After throwing 24 interceptions his first two seasons in the league, Freeman threw a combined 39 in 2011 and 2012. In 2013, Freeman started four games for the Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings before being benched. He was not on a roster last season.
