Well that did not last long. All 53-man rosters around the NFL are works in progress, none more-so than the rosters as a result of the league’s change from a 90-man roster to a 53-man limit. All around the NFL, that change happened today, with players being cut, waived, placed on injured reserve, and...traded.
The Miami Dolphins dropped down to the 53-man roster limit, a move that looked like it should last for about a day before waiver claims started coming in. It did not last an hour. The Dolphins and Houston Texans agreed to a blockbuster trade that sent offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills to Texas. The move game Miami two first-round picks, a second-round pick, a cornerback/special teams player, Johnson Bademosi, and an offensive lineman, Julien Davenport. Miami also sent a fourth-round pick to the Texans in the deal.
So, with the changes to the roster already, I have made the adjustments to our “initial” roster from earlier in the day.
Here is where the roster stands as of the trade:
Andrew Van Ginkel
John Denney, long snapper
Matt Haack, punter
Jason Sanders, kicker
Physically Unable to Perform (PUP)
Robert Nkemdiche, DT
Cordrea Tankersley, CB
