The Miami Dolphins have made another roster cut:
Miami waives LB James Burgess per NFL source— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) September 3, 2016
The move to release linebacker James Burgess, an undrafted free agent out of Louisville this year, brings Miami’s roster to 56 players, meaning there are still three roster cuts to be made. The Dolphins have until 4pm to reach the league’s 53-man roster limit.
A Homestead native, Burgess could be re-signed to the Dolphins practice squad if he clear waivers tomorrow. He was a three-year starter for Louisville and is the son of former University of Miami and San Diego Chargers linebacker James, Sr. Junior was seen, before the draft, as a physical linebacker who, along with being small for the position (5-foot-11, 227 pounds), needed time to develop into an NFL caliber linebacker.
The Dolphins have spent the day making roster moves, working their way to the regular season roster size. They started the day with 74 players on the active roster, plus one on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
