Breaking down officialbearsnflauthentic.com/authentic-kyle-fuller-jersey.html the Dolphins 53
Cutting Marvin McNutt was a bit surprising, especially considering the former Iowa standout Justin Ellis Kids Jersey ended the exhibition season strong, with a 56 yard game winning touchdown against the New Orleans Saints.
But considering Marcus Thigpen also doubles as a receiver, maybe the Dolphins can make it work. There's also tight end Michael Egnew, a receiver impersonating a tight end. However, I have to believe the Dolphins will be poaching a receiver in the coming days. I also expect Miami to sign two camp receivers Brian Tyms, Chad Bumphis or Keenan Davis to the practice squad.
Pat Devlin makes it to the Dolphins' 53 for the third straight season. I'm sensing the Dolphins either love Devlin, or the coaching staff isn't comfortable carrying just two quarterbacks on the 53 man roster. Congrats go to Devlin, who helped the team win the preseason finale. Now he'll enter Teflon Don status, which is a special designation a player gets once I've predicted they'd be cut twice, YET survived. Devlin now joins DE Quentin Moses, OG John Jerry and WR Marlon Moore in this special Teflon Don club.
The Dolphins kept nine offensive linemen on the 53 man roster, which isn't too surprising considering Will Yeatman is the only backup who can man the left tackle position adequately. I'm pretty certain nine will be kept all season, and I suspect Sam Brenner is the top practice squad candidate. Practice squads get formulated tomorrow after waiver Justin Ellis Womens Jersey wire claims are announced at noon. Francis were released. Both played well in camp, and the exhibition season. I wouldn't be surprised if Randall and Francis were claimed on the waiver wire by another team. Most teams can't never find enough good defensive tackles. The Dolphins clearly have an abundance of them. Randall doesn't have practice squad eligibility, so it appears this seventh round pick's tenure with the Dolphins is over. As for Francis, if the former Maryland standout isn't claimed, he'd be an ideal practice squad candidate.
Derrick Shelby making the 53 for a second straight year isn't surprising at all. He's earned the spot, and might get a chance to play regularly if Dion Jordan remains sidelined by his shoulder problems.
Miami cutting Austin Spitler was predictable considering his $1.3 million salary was twice what starting linebacker Koa Misi makes this season. However, the fact Miami didn't replace him with former CFL standout Lee Robinson came out of left field. Instead, Josh Kaddu Kyle Fuller Kids Jersey was kept as the seventh linebacker. That leaves me to wonder who serves as the backup middle linebacker now that Spitler is gone. Jason Trusnik, Kaddu, rookie Jelani Jenkins, or Jonathan Freeny? Not sure the Dolphins are done tinkering there. Spitler can still play in the NFL, and I wouldn't be surprised if he finds work with another team. I also wouldn't be surprised if Lee Robinson was placed on the Dolphins' practice squad.
Again, congrats to everyone who survived cut day, and to the families that support them. And keep in mind that survival doesn't mean the battle isn over because the Dolphins have claimed at least one player every year under General Manager Jeff Ireland.
With every waiver wire addition made someone has to go, so nobody should get too comfortable in Davie. I'm guessing that McCray, Jones, Stanford, Kaddu and Yeatman were the last players on the 53, which means they are now on the hotseat.
