The Miami Dolphins had to have their roster trimmed down to 53 players yesterday and although some players made it through the cuts, there is no guarantee they stick around. There are probably some recently released players around the league that the Dolphins could be interested in.

Not only did the Dolphins make plenty of cuts, reworked Cedrick Wilson’s contract to create some cap space for this season. The veteran wide receiver was on the trade block but it looks like he’ll be sticking around now with he reworked deal. The team also traded guard Dan Feeney to the Chicago Bears for a 6th round pick.

In fact, there was a ton of roster movement yesterday and there should be more to come in the coming days.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
