The Miami Dolphins completed their final round of roster cuts yesterday, dropping the roster from 75 players down to 53, but that does not mean the roster is finalized. Today, the Dolphins, and every NFL team, will spend the day exercising waiver claims, signing free agents, and adding a practice squad. We will track all the rumors and signings.
The important thing to remember, especially when it comes to the practice squad, is nothing is official until a signature is on a contract. Every year, some player is reported to be signing with the Dolphins, only to have him end up on another team. There have been instances around the NFL where a player has been on a plane heading for a team, or even in the team's facility, when they choose to sign with the practice squad or active roster for another team.

McLeod Bethel-Thompson, quarterback
Sam Brenner, center
Deandre Coleman, defensive tackle
Mike Hull, linebacker
Tim Semisch, tight end
