Just a year after signing with the Miami Dolphins, Isa Abdul-Quddus has been waived by the Miami Dolphins.
Barry Jackson was one of the Miami Herald was one of the first to report the news of Abdul-Quddus’ release after getting the news from a source.

Abdul-Quddus only played one season in South Florida but impressed many. After five seasons of being a pawn in the defensive scheme in both New Orleans and Detroit, it seemed as if he fit into Miami‘s defense perfectly.
However, after starting 15 games he went down with a neck injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. And not even a week ago reports came out regarding his availability for the 2017 season.
His release comes after failing a team physical. The biggest – and most disappointing news – is that he’s not expected to play again. Ever.
A neck injury is nothing to toy around with. Players are retiring now more than ever due to the fear of injuries that could affect them later in life. Abdul-Quddus could be next on that list. For his sake let’s hope he can fully heal sooner rather than later.
Miami is now in the hunt for a starting safety alongside Reshad Jones for the 2017 NFL season. Last Friday I hit on the possibility of former Green Bay Packers safety Micah Hyde coming to town, and I believe that possibility just got a little more realistic.
