DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Linebacker Rey Maualuga has signed with the Miami Dolphins, who put wide receiver Isaiah Ford on injured reserve.

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Justin Fuente's second year at Virginia Tech will present some challenges similar to the first.
The Hokies still have not identified a starting quarterback, with the options including redshirt freshman Josh Jackson, junior college transfer AJ Bush and freshman Hendon Hooker. None of them have ever taken a snap in a FBS-level game.
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Justin Fuente's second season as the coach at Virginia Tech will be a significant challenge because his first-year success might have cost him some players.
The Hokies won 10 games again, in part because of a dynamic offense, but went into Wednesday's national signing day needing to replace three record-setting juniors who decided to leave early for the NFL: quarterback Jerod Evans, wide receiver Isaiah Ford and tight end-wide receiver Bucky Hodges.
Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans and receiver Isaiah Ford are giving up their final seasons of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.
The star Hokies each posted their decisions on their Twitter accounts Monday.
Evans is a junior college transfer who played one season in Blacksburg, Virginia.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — One of the nation's worst secondaries kept daring Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans to throw. So he did. Over. And over. And over.
The junior shook off a right ankle injury to throw for a career-high 406 yards and two touchdowns to lead the 25th-ranked Hokies to a 39-36 victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans describes himself as his own biggest critic, and that feeling holds true even after he makes a play that results in a touchdown.
That was the case in the Hokies' 49-0 victory against Boston College .
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Jerod Evans thinks Virginia Tech is still learning how effective and explosive it can be on offense.
