Dolphins waive five, trade two, terminate one

It was a dark day for a a handful of now former Dolphins.

Aside from the termination of Ernest Wilford (see post below), the Dolphins are announcing they have cut RB Anthony Kimble, LBs Tearrius George and Orion Martin, NT Joe Cohen and WR-Return specialist Chris Williams.

I have also confirmed via an NFL source that guard Andy Alleman has been traded to Kansas City for an undisclosed late-round pick in 2010. He is part of an offensive line exchange to the Chiefs. The Alleman story was first reported by Scouts.com.

The rest of the exchange? Jeff Darlington is reporting that Ikechuku Ndukwe went in the same package to the Chiefs as Alleman. Ndukwe started 15 games at right guard last year but was moved to right tackle this year and was languishing on third team during camp. 

Williams was waived injured as he actually injured his wrist and hand during that fateful punt that hit him in the facemask and he fumbled Saturday night. That play sealed the Williams experiment in Miami.

I'd like to tell you any of these cuts are significant because that would warrant an explanation on how they affect other roster decisions.

But the truth is all of these players were long-shots to make the team -- even Wilford -- and have no significant impact on future roster decisions.

The only sliver of impact out of all this is that, with only three nose tackles on the roster following Cohen's departure, the possibility the Dolphins keep Louis Ellis improves -- even if it is as a practice squad type player.

The Dolphins now have 70 players on their roster, including Matt Roth, who is on the Non-Football Injury list. It will be interesting to see if Miami adds anyone in the coming days as the team is already below the 75-man limit it must reach by Sept. 1. The 53-man roster must be established by Sept. 5.

Check out the post below to get the explanation on what Wilford's termination means to the salary cap. A hint: It's not great news.

Tons of sports sights are now reporting Matt Roth, will be traded to the St. Louis Rams, for an undisclosed 2010 draft pick.

ha jrod, I said same thing about del rey.

see cesar,

I speak the truth. You should go outside of San Jose while you are there. There are many fun thing to do in costa rica (beaches, surfing, sport fishsing, rainforest, volcano, ladies)

Jon,

I don't see any sports sites for say we to trade roth to rams

Allen , I all due respect , but what the heck are you talking about ? Miami already has taylor , porter , Quentin Moses ( 6-5 260 runs a 4.5 ) , Cameron wake ( also 6-3 269 4-5 ) , C , anderson and roth at olb. what the heck are we going to do with him. Is He a friend of yours ?

Jon . also what the " F " are yu talking about. ? you can't trade a guy who's on the injured/unable to perform list.

NJ,

I think Allen is either guy who say we should get hakeem nicks or the one who say we do 3 man qb rotation. He don't know nothings.

Roth is a stiff. Ship him to the Jets so we can stomp on him twice a year. Taylor and Moses will be better, mark it down. I am especially excited about Moses. Porter and Wake will man the other side. Crowder, Aydole and Torbor, along with Folsom are the inside guys. There are your 8 linebackers.

Roth has been diagnosed with SGS (swine groin syndrome).

CESAR- Sportsman's Den in SJ shows most if not all games, is a full-on sports bar, "meeting" place, it's fun place in a quiet part of Chepe not far from the Del Rey. Also Casa Club Colonial (casino) which is part of the Sleep Inn, is just a few steps around the corner of the Del Rey, upstairs in the casino they show all NFL games in a large comfortable room with lunch and cocktail services. Sportsman's Den is with the girls, the Colonial is not that type of place so you can make your choice.

damn...everyone runs a 4.5 now? unbelievable.

Sanchez= bust. One almost two pick-6 's in his 1st 2 series.
