Dolphins roster cuts updates and rumors tracker 2018

The NFL Preseason is complete for the Miami Dolphins, which means it is time for the most painful part of the summer - NFL roster cuts. The team has to be down to the 53-man roster limit the league uses for the regular season by 4pm Eastern on Saturday. After a relatively quiet Friday, with only three cuts leaking along with a trade, Saturday will become busy for Miami.

The Dolphins will have some tough decisions to make over the next few hours. Will Brock Osweiler’s performance against the Atlanta Falcons be enough to push him onto the roster? Will that mean David Fales falls off of the roster despite looking like the favorite for the second-string quarterback position most of the summer? How does Miami deal with some really talented depth along the defensive line - possibly cutting some players who could make an impact this year if they were kept? Do players like Jake Brendel, who has not been able to practice most of the summer, or Tony Lippett, who is still working his way back into game shape, make the roster?

We will track everything throughout the next couple of days, with all of it consolidated here in one place.
