Sherels was signed by the Dolphins on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Sherels has gained extensive special teams experience since joining the league as a rookie with the Vikings back in 2010, appearing in a total of 123 games to this point. The former Minnesota Gopher may not see much action at cornerback in Miami, but he could relieve wide receiver Jakeem Grant of return duties as the latter looks to get more involved in the offensive game plan.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Sherels had just eight tackles last year as he was almost exclusively used as a punt returner. With the Vikings acquiring more talent in the secondary, Sherels may have a hard time justifying his roster spot on punt return duties alone. However, he was 7th in punt return yards per attempt, so he'll likely retain the job if he can remain as productive.
While Sherels posted a rather modest tackle total (46) and failed to record an interception last season, he did bat away seven passes and was a factor in the punt-return game as well. He'll return to the Vikings next season and figures to play a similar reserve defensive back and special teams role in new coach Mike Zimmer's defense.
Sherels will compete for a reserve defensive back role and to retain the job as Minnesota's punt returner. While Sherels isn't explosive, he consistently catches punts. He also improved last season in both his average return yardage (9.0 from 8.4) and scored a touchdown on a return. He doesn't get much playing time as a defensive back, so his fantasy value is limited to leagues that count return yardage.
Sherels, an undrafted free agent from the University of Minnesota, started three games at cornerback and got significant time in the secondary. He also became Minnesota's primary punter returner and also handled kickoffs. He could have a similar reserve secondary role again this year, but he wasn't explosive on returns (just a 8.4 average) and could easily lose the return roles.
