Miami Dolphins roster cuts: 53-man roster in place

The 53-man roster deadline for the NFL has come, which gives us the initial slate of players for the Miami Dolphins. At least until they start making more moves.

The Miami Dolphins have established their initial 53-man roster ahead of the NFL roster cut deadline. Until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday afternoon, teams were allowed to keep up to 90 players on their roster, but once the clock struck four, the roster limit switched to the regular season’s 53-man limit. Of course, the team can and will continue to make moves over the next several days and into the regular season, but we at least have the initial 53-man roster now.

Now that we are past the cut deadline, free agent signings and waiver claims will begin. Tomorrow, when any waiver claims have been awarded, teams will also be able to begin building their practice squads. For the Dolphins, tomorrow should also bring several injury-related moves, with players like cornerback Jalen Ramsey sliding onto the injured reserve list, freeing up a roster spot to sign a free agent, make a waiver claim, or re-sign one of their own cut players.
