The NFL completed the 1,100+ roster moves that led to teams working from the 90-man preseason roster limit down to the 53-man regular season limit that went into effect yesterday at 4pm Eastern. Today, teams will start being awarded waiver claims on players from other teams that were cut, as well as build their practice squads.

The Miami Dolphins completed their roster cuts, with Xavien Howard, Bobby McCain, Cordrea Tankersley, Torry McTyer, and Cornell Armstrong making the team at the cornerback position (plus safety Minkah Fitzpatrick playing as the nickel cornerback). While none of the players on the roster seemed to want to lock down the second starting position opposite Howard during the summer, the team is hoping they will be ready for the regular season with McCain on the outside and Fitzpatrick inside.

What is available if they need to go shopping for a cornerback? There are some interesting names that could be waiver claims or signings as a free agent. KeiVarae Russell from Cincinnati could be on the radar, DeShawn Shead from Detroit, and Cyrus Jones from New England could all be interesting names to watch.
