Dolphins roster cuts still coming

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins have until 4pm ET today to bring the roster down to the NFL's 75 player limit. That means, at some point today, nine players will be released.

The Miami Dolphins have just a few hours before the league's 75-player limit becomes the law of the land. Before that 4pm ET limit, the team must release nine more players. Last week, the Dolphins released five players, guards Jeff Braun and Chandler Burden, defensive tackle Chris Burnette, linebacker Alonzo Highsmith, and wide receiver Kenny Stafford, bringing them down to 84 players.

Yesterday, we broke down the 24 players we see on the roster bubble. Ultimately, I predicted the nine players to be cut:

  1. Jeff Adams
  2. Antwan Applewhite
  3. Chris Barker
  4. Aaron Corp
  5. Keelan Johnson
  6. Emeka Onyenekwu
  7. Tracy Robertson
  8. Andrell Smith
  9. Nathan Williams

Now, we just wait to see who will be the nine player not with the Dolphins tonight.
