NFL roster cut down: Dolphins roster status before roster deadline

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL's first roster cut deadline is tomorrow, with teams having to get down to 75 players. Here's a look at when the deadline hits, as well as the state of the Miami roster.

We have officially reached the blood-letting period of the NFL preseason. Tomorrow at 4pm ET, NFL teams must be down to 75 players from the 90 man roster they have been allowed thus far through the offseason and preseason. Many teams, including the Miami Dolphins, have already begun pairing the roster.

Prior to Saturday night's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dolphins released guards Jeff Braun and Chandler Burden, defensive tackle Chris Burnette, linebacker Alonzo Highsmith, and wide receiver Kenny Stafford. The team was only carrying 89 players before the cuts, so currently, Miami has 84 players on the roster.

Between now and Tuesday, nine more names from the roster will have to be released. Before we get there, here's a look at the 84 members still on the team:
