The other side of the NFL Draft and Undrafted Free Agent frenzy hit two members of the Miami Dolphins today, with the team announcing the waiving of wide receiver Michael Rios and quarterback Jordan Rodgers. As teams sign UDFAs, they need to make room on the roster, and a churn of the bottom of the roster is not unusual.
Add in the drafting of wide receiver Jarvis Landry, as well as the reported signings of quarterback Brock Jensen and wide receivers Damien Wooten and Ryan Lankford, and suddenly Rios and Rodgers became the odd men out.
Rodgers, the brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Rios both joined the Dolphins this offseason, signing contracts on April 3 as the Dolphins looked to fill their allotted offseason 90 man roster. Unfortunately for both of them, they will not be on the roster long enough to make it to the Organized Team Activities, minicamp, or training camp.
