Dolphins release QB John Beck

I guess this shouldn't come as any surprise to anyone.  The Dolphins have indeed cut their 2007 second round draft pick, QB John Beck.  General Manager Jeff Ireland released this statement upon announcing the move:

"We want to thank John for his work ethic and his professionalism. We wish him well in the future."

It's a shame because I think John has the physical tools needed to succeed in this league.  But he was drafted by the previous regime and was put into a tough spot his rookie season.

I sincerely hope the best for John.  He's a good person.  He works hard and I really hope he gets another chance from some NFL team.  In the long run, though, this move is best for both the Beck and the Dolphins.

Hat tip to "shula13" for bringing this to my attention.
