Dolphins release OLB Charlie Anderson; sign ILB Bobby Carpenter

New, comments

According to Omar Kelly on Twitter:

The Dolphins have released Charlie Anderson to make room for recently signed Bobby Carpenter, who is a strong special teams contributor.

Cutting Anderson saves Miami from having to pay him $2.2million.  Anderson posted just five sacks in his last 32 games.

Bobby Carpenter will likely fill the nickle backer role, replacing Crowder on passing downs.  The Fins had initially hoped rookie A.J. Edds would be their nickel 'backer, prior to his season ending injury.
