The Miami Dolphins have waived Tank Carradine for a second time this year and added another offensive lineman to the team.
Tank Carradine was re-signed by the Miami Dolphins after week one of the season but his stay with the Dolphins didn’t last long. He was waived to make room for another offensive lineman that probably won’t see much playing time.
To take Carradine’s roster spot the Dolphins added Andrew Donnal a left tackle taken in the 4th round by the Rams in 2015. His career has taken him from the Rams to the Lions and the Raves in his four seasons.
Donnal has six starts in 29 games played and will give the Dolphins some depth with the injury situation of Jesse Davis. Davis injured his arm on Sunday and missed the second half of the game. He told media outlets that he isn’t as sore as the thought and remains confident that he will be able to play Sunday against the Chargers.
With David out the Dolphins turned to rookie Michael Dieter who slit outside. Dieter did well enough but there were struggles as there should be in his first outing as a left tackle.
With the release of Carradine, the Dolphins are again thinner at defensive end. Miami currently has Taco Charlton, Avery Moss, and Charles Harris listed as defensive ends and their play through three games is rather mundane. Miami also used defensive tackle John Jenkins on the edge. The Dolphins roster lists Jenkins as a defensive tackle but the depth chart lists him as a defensive end but then again the depth chart also lists Christian Wilkins as a defensive end as well.
It is interesting to see the depth chart as it clearly is showing a switch to a 3-4 defensive style.
