Dolphins Cuts Are Now Official


The Miami Dolphins were the last team to release their cuts and right off the top a few surprises awaited the audience.

WR Marvin McNutt who many believed had locked down a roster spot following the Chad Bumphis and Brian Tyms releases was let go.  His release leaves the Dolphins with four WR’s on their roster.

DL Kheeston Randall also got the heave-ho as did A.J. Francis.  The Dolphins are thick at the defensive line but Randall was expected to hang around another season.

The Dolphins have opted, for now, to keep all three of their QB’s as Pat Devlin makes it to the 53.

The final “surprise” release is Austin Spitler who has played an important special teams role for the unit.  Spitler was set to make over a 1m on the season and it appears that the younger LB’s have stepped up and proven their value.  Spitler failed to make a major impact in the LB’ing group but has been a decent if un-spectacular back-up.

At TE the Dolphins will go with Charles Clay, Dion Sims, and Michael Egnew as they waive Kyle Miller.  The team is also keeping HB/TE/RB Evan Rodriquez as well.

The Dolphins will enter Sunday with 6 CB’s, 4 WR’s, 4 Safeties, and a slew of RB’s who will likely see some action in the slots.  The Dolphins are likely to make some more roster changes tomorrow for certain.

The rest of today’s cuts are below.  The Dolphins will likely add a couple to the roster after placing waiver claims around the league and a few of these players will end up on the practice squad.
