The Dolphins made two pretty significant roster moves yesterday. The team added safety T.J. McDonald to bolster their secondary. However, McDonald will have to serve an eight game suspension due before he can see the playing field. The other roster move was the announcement of the team waiving Dion Jordan. Everyone saw this move coming as the former third overall pick wasted all his chances.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
