Training camp has officially started around the National Football League.
Players and coaches have been at NFL facilities for a little over a week now. And as we’ve witnessed early on in the process—there will be a ton of roster moves made between now and week 1.
Earlier today, for example, Jerome Baker returned to practice after being removed from the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
The Dolphins later announced they had activated veteran cornerback Cordrea Tankersley from the reserve list to part ways with him shortly afterward. Long-snapper Rex Sunahara also suffered the same fate.
Here is the official statement from the Dolphins on the release of cornerback Cordrea Tankersley and long-snapper Rex Sunahara.
We have activated CB Cordrea Tankersley off the reserve/COVID-19 list.— Miami Dolphins (@MiamiDolphins) August 4, 2020
We have waived LS Rex Sunahara and Cordrea Tankersley.
Tankersley, a former 2017 third-round pick, played 17 career games with the Dolphins and amassed 35 tackles and seven pass breakups during this time. Tank hoped to get a chance this offseason to prove he belonged on Miami’s roster, but unfortunately, he must now embark on the journey to make another NFL team’s 53-man roster.
As for Sunahara, it was evident by the investment made on Blake Ferguson that we would be saying sayonara to Sunahara, sooner rather than later.
