The Miami Dolphins have begun the unfortunate process of making roster cuts. The team, as with every club in the NFL, has to move from their current 80 man roster down to the regular-season 53-man limit. On Monday, eight roster moves were reported, leaving Miami with 73 players on the roster, with 20 moves to come on Tuesday. The league’s 53-man limit goes into effect at 4pm ET.

Miami started Monday with 81 players on the roster, thanks to a roster exemption for International Pathway Program player Durval Queiroz Neto. That exemption does not carry over to the regular season, but could follow him to the practice squad should Miami look to keep him there.
