The Miami Dolphins continue their roster purge in an effort to reach the NFL’s 53-man roster limit which goes into effect at 4pm ET today. The latest two players to be released were offensive lineman Jamil Douglas (reported by the Miami Herald) and wide receiver Rashawn Scott (reported by the Palm Beach Post).
The moves bring the Dolphins to 60 total players on the roster, with seven moves still to be made.
Douglas, Miami’s fourth-round draft pick in 2015, disappeared this summer, buried on the depth chart as the team looked to continue his development as a center. Looking to be the primary backup behind Mike Pouncey, Douglas ultimately fell behind Anthony Steen, who could be starting for Pouncey who injured his hip during the preseason, with Douglas never recovering.
Scott was a University of Miami product who signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent this year. He could be a practice squad target for the Dolphins, but he was unfortunate in playing a position with Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, Leonte Carroo, and Jakeem Grant all already with locked in roster positions.
