The Miami Dolphins have completed their final round of roster cuts ahead of today’s 4pm ET deadline. According to NFL rules, all teams had to move from the 75-man interim preseason roster, down to the 53-man roster by that deadline. Miami made several roster moves throughout the day Saturday, finally arriving at a 53-man roster that we have listed below.

Several changes will likely happen over the next few days as the Dolphins claim players off of waivers from other teams or sign free agents after the waiver period has passed. The team will also sign a 10-player practice squad, primarily consisting of players they just waived, starting on Sunday.

The players released/waived/added to the PUP today are:

James Burgess, LB
Chimdi Chekwa, CB
Deandre Coleman, DT
Chris Culliver, CB (PUP)
Jamil Douglas, OL
Thomas Duarte, TE
Zac Dysert, QB
Shamiel Gary, S
Tyler Gray, LB
A.J. Hendy, S
Ulrick John, OL
James-Michael Johnson, LB
Chris Jones, DT
Dominique Jones, TE
Cleyon Laing, DE
Rashaan Melvin, CB
Lafayette Pitts, CB
Cedric Reed, DE
Rashawn Scott, WR
Daniel Thomas, RB
Jordan Williams, DE
Sam Young, OL
