Heads to Miami on one-year pact
The Dolphins agreed to terms with Elliott on a one-year contract Wednesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Elliott spent last season with the Lions, starting 13 games and playing 91 percent of the snaps while recording 96 tackles and one interception. In Miami, Elliott could step into a starting role at safety alongside Jevon Holland if Brandon Jones (knee) isn't able to make a full recovery from the ACL tear he suffered in late October.

Primed for pay raise
Elliott registered 96 tackles, three pass breakups, one forced fumble and one recovered fumble over 14 games in 2022.
Playing on a one-year, $1.1 million deal in 2022, Elliott had a rough start to his tenure in Detroit that included an early-season benching. However, it didn't take Elliott long to work his way back into the lineup, where he was an every-down player over the second half the year. Considering that he figures to have plenty of suitors for his services in 2023, Elliott is far from certain to return to Detroit.
Back in action Sunday
Elliott (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game at Green Bay.
Elliott has missed the last two contests due to a shoulder issue, but after putting together three consecutive capped sessions during Week 18 prep, he'll set aside his questionable designation and return to his typical role as the Lions' starting free safety.
Expected to play Sunday
Elliott (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay, but he's expected to play, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Elliott has missed back-to-back games due to a shoulder injury, but it appears he'll return to action for a pivotal Week 18 matchup against the Packers. Across 13 appearances with Detroit, the fourth-year safety has totaled a career-high 91 tackles to go along with three pass defenses, one interception and one forced fumble.
Won't face Chicago
Elliott (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Elliott will be sidelined for the second consecutive game with the shoulder injury he suffered Week 15 against the Jets. Ifeatu Melifonwu played 97 percent of Detroit's defensive snaps in Elliott's absence last week and could play a heavy role again Sunday.
Not expected back in Week 17
Elliott (shoulder) is unlikely to play in Week 17 versus the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Head coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Elliott will likely miss a second straight game Sunday against Chicago after he suffered a shoulder injury in Week 15 against the Jets. In the safety's absence last week, Ifeatu Melifonwu played a season-high 97 percent of the defensive snaps, something that will likely be replicated in Week 17.
