The Splash Zone 8/28/16: Dolphins Waive 11 Players

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins need to reduce their roster size to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. The team released quite a few players yesterday with names like Brandon Harris and Matt Hazel.
