The Miami Dolphins have released Jordan Williams, according to the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley. The move takes the team down to nine more roster moves to make. Williams’ release was not a surprise, given his status deep down a depth chart at a position that may be one of the deepest on the roster for the Dolphins.
Williams began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent of the New York Jets, signing in 2015 and spending training camp and the preseason there. He was among the last roster cuts for New York, then signed back to their practice squad. After being released from the Jets' practice squad, he joined the Dolphins practice squad on Oct. 6, 2015. Williams played collegiately at Tennessee where he appeared in 44 games (22 starts) and totaled 66 tackles (39 solo), 6.5 sacks and four passes defensed. During his senior campaign in 2014, Jordan Williams started all 13 games and recorded 27 tackles, two sacks and four passes defensed.
