Two more of the Miami Dolphins' roster cuts have been announced.  The Miami Herald's Jeff Dalington reported via Twitter that the Dolphins have waived wide receiver John Matthews and safety Gerald Alexander.

Matthews was a undrafted free agent out of the University of San Diego in 2009.  Originally signed by the Indianapolis Colts, he made his NFL debut the next season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  He eventually appeared in three total games with the Jaguars.  Matthews was waived by the Jags back in August, signing with the Dolphins three days later.  Matthews is eligible for practice squad assignment if he makes it through waivers.

Alexander signed with the Dolphins on August 28th, after five years in the league.  He was originally a 2007 second round pick by he Detroit Lions, starting all 16 games for the team that year.  He then moved to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009, befrore splitting 2010 between the Jaguars and the Carolina Panthers.  

With the waiving of Alexander and Matthews, the Dolphins are now at 77 personnel, with 24 cuts remaining before they reach the NFL required 53-man roster.  The deadline for the cuts is 6pm tomorrow.
