The Miami Dolphins have added another new player to the roster on Thursday, and parted with a rookie draft pick in the process.

Offensive tackle Isaiah Prince, a sixth-round pick out of Ohio State who has played in four games this season, was waived by the team to make room for defensive tackle Zach Sieler off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens.

“Anyone we feel like can help us get better that we feel like has some developmental potential, we’ll look into it,” Flores said while speaking in general of the Dolphins adding talent off the waiver wire, which they’ve done with five players this week.

"We don’t make every move we could possibly make, but the ones that we think feel like will help us, we try to make.”

While the Dolphins will evaluate Sieler’s potential, there is a possibility they could re-sign Prince to their practice squad as early as this week. But that would require Prince not being claimed by another NFL team.

Prince was one of five rookie draft picks selected by the Dolphins under the new regime of coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier. Prince was viewed as a long-term project for offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo that could help stabilize Miami’s offense line if he developed into a capable NFL tackle.

Prince played sparingly during his four games of action, often coming onto the field as a sixth offensive lineman on offense. He was inactive in eight other games this season.

Sieler spent the last two years with the Ravens organization, joining their 53-man roster in October before his release last week. He played in four games this season, while spending all of last season on Baltimore’s practice squad.

Sieler played Division II college football at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich. He had 80 total tackles, 29.5 tackles for loss, 16.5 sacks, five fumbles forced and two fumble recoveries in 2016.

Sieler becomes the fifth newcomer to the Dolphins roster this week. Offensive lineman Evan Brown was signed off the New York Giants practice squad, while running back Zach Zenner and receivers Mack Hollins and Trevor Davis were claimed off waivers.

The Dolphins have waived Prince, rookie safety Montre Hartage, cornerback Ken Crawley and offensive lineman Chris Reed, and placed running back Kalen Ballage on injured reserve this week.

Hartage re-joined the Dolphins practice squad on Thursday.
