Dolphins release four more

New, comments

With just two weeks to go before the regular season begins, the Dolphins continue to trim their roster.  On Saturday, they announced the release of four more players.

The four who were waived are Anthony Armstrong, Connor Barth, Louis Ellis, and Joe Kowalewski.

Armstrong was a popular player entering camp.  A number of Dolphin fans were hoping for big things out of the former Arena League player after impressive performances at OTAs and minicamp.  But he was disappointing in training camp and invisible during the preseason - outside of a couple drops, of course.

But this doesn't necessarily mean Brandon London is now guaranteed a roster spot.  If the Dolphins are to keep six receivers, then London is on the team.  But we have no idea if the Dolphins plan to keep six receivers - which is not common around the league.  The Dolphins could decide to keep a fourth running back - Lex Hilliard - instead of a sixth receiver.  They could also decide to keep an extra linebacker rather than a sixth receiver.  Lots of options here and by no means is London a safe bet at this point.

But Dan Carpenter - or DC$ - is a lock.  Barth's release should come as no surprise following Carpenter's solid preseason.  He hasn't missed a FG through three preseason games and is 2/2 from 40+ yards.  But it will be interesting to see how this regime handles DC$ if he gets off to a shaky start in the regular season.
