Dolphins release Jesse Davis and Allen Hurns

NFL: New York Giants at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

After a wild 48 hours that saw the Miami Dolphins land premier left tackle Terron Armstead AND game-changing wide receiver Tyreek Hill, the Dolphins have made some cuts to the roster, freeing up valuable cap space as the team moves forward.

According to the Miami Dolphins, the team has released veteran guard/tackle Jesse Davis and wide receiver Allen Hurns.

Davis, 30, started 72 games for the Miami Dolphins after joining the practice squad on November 22, 2016. The undrafted free agent from Idaho played five seasons in the NFL, all for the Dolphins. Davis got a lot of criticism from fans (myself included), but he always seemed better suited as the 6th man off the bench. Nevertheless, Davis will now be searching for a new team for the first time in his NFL career.

Hurns, 30, joined the Dolphins on July 26, 2019, appearing in 14 games for the team. After opting out of the 2020 season, Hurns sustained an injury that forced him to miss the entire 2021 season.

The team announced the veteran wide receiver failed a physical, voiding his contract.

Releasing Jesse Davis saves the Dolphins $3.610 million in 2022. Hurns saves the Dolphins $2.575 million, all numbers according to SPOTRAC.
