The Miami Dolphins are almost to the 53-man roster ahead of tonight's 9pm Eastern deadline. The team started with 74 players this morning, after trading the soon-to-be-cut backup center Ryan Cook to the Dallas Cowboys for a seventh round pick. Already today, the Dolphins have released 13 players, meaning sometime over the next 90 minutes, 9 more players have to be cut.
The list of players cut is below:
- Isakko Aaitui, Defensive Tackle
- Vincent Agnew, Cornerback
- Ryan Baker, Defensive Tackle
- Will Barker, Tackle
- Cameron Collins, Linebacker
- B.J. Cunningham, Wide Receiver
- Ray Feinga, Tackle
- Jeff Fuller, Wide Receiver
- Clyde Gates, Wide Receiver
- Gary Guyton, Linebacker
- Shelly Lyons, Linebacker
- Quinten Lawrence, Cornerback
- Andrew McDonald, Tackle
- Lydon Murtha, Tackle
- Kevyn Scott, Cornerback
- Roberto Wallace, Wide Receiver
- Jamaal Westerman, Defensive End
The Dolphins are also said to be involved in trade talks with several teams for quarterback Matt Moore, as well as working to acquire wide receiver James Jones from the Green Bay Packers and wide receiver Anthony Armstrong from the Washington Redskins.

NFL.com has Jeff Fuller and B.J. Cunningham listed on their tracker, so I am adding them to the list of cuts. This brings Miami to 16 cuts, with six to go.
