The Miami Dolphins waived defensive tackle/end Julius Warmsley, the team announced on Wednesday. The move opens a roster spot for Miami, with no corresponding addition to the team being announced.
Warmsley appeared in five games for the Dolphins this year, recording eight tackles and a quarterback hit. He was signed to a futures contract in January after spending portions of the 2015 season on the Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks practice squads. He was a 2014 undrafted free agent signing by the Houston Texans but was released at the end of training camp before joining the Seahawks practice squad for that season.
The Dolphins could be looking to use the roster spot now available to activate cornerback Chris Culliver or linebacker Zach Vigil off their respective positions on the Physically Unable to Perform or Non-Football Injury list.
Miami is currently on their bye week, with their next game, a home contest against the New York Jets, scheduled for November 6.
