Dolphins cuts complete as roster reaches 53

The Dolphins have finished the first and second round of their cuts today and now stand at the NFL mandated 53-man roster limit.

In total, these are today's moves:

A dozen players were cut -- WR Brandon London, S Courtney Bryan, CB Joey Thomas, LB William Kershaw, DE Rod Wright, OL Brandon Frye, CB Will Billingsley, G/C Mark Lewis, LB J.D. Folsom, OT Nate Garner, WR James Robinson and DE Ryan Baker.

One player was placed on the Reserve Non-football injury list -- OLB Matt Roth.

The club kept four tight ends. The club kept eight offensive linemen. The team kept five cornerbacks and five wide receivers. The team keeps six OLB, which is an unusually high total but understandable in that Erik Walden and Charlie Anderson are core special teams players.

The team kept three ILBs, with J.D. Folsom representing the only rookie from the 2009 draft class to be cut. The team kept four safeties.

Check back in a while and I'll give you a more complete analysis.
