As of 4 PM EST today NFL league rules dictate rosters must be cut down to 81 players.

The Dolphins announced they released 3 players and played one on IR.

Jermaine Eluemunor, OL

Eluemunor came from New England during this offseason and was a depth piece for the team. After trading for OT Greg Little and seeing a slightly better OL performance on Saturday, the Dolphins released Eluemunor. 

This opens up the door for IPP player Durval Quieroz Neto.

Isaiah Ford, WR

This Dolphins released WR Isaiah Ford today. He’s had multiple stints with the team and always finds his way back to Miami. In a WR room with at least 7 guys who can make the roster, Ford had to show more over the last few weeks. 

Unfortunate for Ford, but good news for other WR’s like Kirk Merritt.

Robert Foster, WR

Robert Foster was released with an injury designation. He had shown some flashes of potential, but similarly to Ford, the WR was too crowded. His injury makes it an easier cut for Miami. 

This makes it clear that Mack Hollins will make the roster. He’s had a great offseason, and that isn’t a surprise.

Lynn Bowden, WR

The Dolphins placed Lynn Bowden Jr. on IR with a hamstring injury. This move is going to most likely end his season. Miami can release him with an injury designation and then choose to resign him. In that case, though, Bowden would be an FA and could sign anywhere.
