Adam Gase is starting to take control of the Miami Dolphins' 53-man roster, making his first move since being announced the head coach of the team on Saturday. The Dolphins announced the waiving of offensive tackle Jason Fox today.

Fox appeared in 24 games in two seasons with the Dolphins, with 13 starts. He spent much of this season filling in for the injured Ja'Wuan James at right tackle, though he did play left tackle at times, replacing Branden Albert on Ryan Tannehill's blind side.
Fox accounted for just under $1 million against the salary cap this year. Releasing him will save the team about $1.3 million against next year's salary cap. Miami was projected to be about $1 million over the salary cap next year, which the Fox move should bring them down to almost exactly the salary limit.
