Charlton, 25, entered the league as the Dallas Cowboys’ first-round pick at No. 28 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Charlton, who stands at 6 feet 6 and 270 pounds, registered seven starts in 2018 before suffering a shoulder injury. The Cowboys waived Charlton just two weeks into the 2019 regular season after back-to-back healthy scratches prompted him to tweet “Free me” from his official Twitter account.
The defensive lineman landed with the Dolphins in Miami. Charlton played in 10 games with five starts for the Dolphins, compiling 21 tackles (14 solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles. He was a healthy scratch for three of the Dolphins’ last four games of the season.
