The Miami Dolphins have officially released their 2012 practice squad. A day after the madness of the waiver wire claims, the team has filled the eight player practice squad.
The members are guard Chandler Burden, linebacker Jonathan Freeny, wide receiver Jeff Fuller, wide receiver Chris Hogan, linebacker Josh Kaddu, tackle Andrew McDonald, cornerback DeAndre Presley, and safety Anderson Russell. Seven of the eight players were with the Dolphins in training camp.
Presley joins the Dolphins having spent the preseason with the San Diego Chargers, signing with them as an undrafted free agent. He played quarterback, wide receiver, and returner in college at Appalachian State. He played one game at cornerback in college, the only time he had even been on defense before joining the Chargers.
As we discussed yesterday, the eight members of the practice squad will receive a minimum salary of $5,700 a week. They are also able to negotiate with other teams to join their 53-man roster, with limitations on when they can join a new team.
