The Dolphins announced today that they have cut nine players. Four of them are relatively big names. Those are Trent Green, Marty Booker, LJ Shelton, and Keith Traylor.
The Dolphins also waived Anthony Alabi, Joe Toledo, Anthony Bryant, Marion Dukes, and Marquay Love.
Here's the only statement the Dolphins released:
"I want to thank all of them for their contributions to the Dolphins and wish them good luck."
More on this to come, including a look at how this affects Miami's salary cap situation...
**UPDATE**: So what does this mean for the Dolphins' cap situation? These cuts save the Dolphins about an additional $12.5 million in cap room after considering each players' cost of being cut (cost of prorated bonuses). And that's not even considering Love, Bryant, or Dukes because I can't seem to get much info on their old contracts. But do keep in mind that these are rough estimates, but should be very close to 100% accurate.
I'll be back later on tonight and get into more of what these cuts may/may not mean. Until then, please give us all your thoughts on these cuts below...
