The Miami Dolphins didn’t waste any time to commence their roster-trimming process.
The team announced the release of the following players: offensive guards Jeff Braun and Chandler Burden, defensive tackle Chris Burnette, linebacker Alonzo Highsmith and receiver Kenny Stafford (Cris Carter’s nephew).
Miami hosts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. so all of the players on the bubble of making the 53-man roster will have to showcase their talent.
By Tuesday, the Dolphins — and every NFL team — must cut their roster to 75 players, and by Saturday evening, every roster will be set for 53 players.
It should be an entertaining week for roster transactions. Stay tuned!
