Dolphins start roster trim with starter Lane

It didn't look good for Jorvorskie Lane last March when the team signed multiple wide receivers, making the likelihood of a three-receiver, one back set tangible. It looked worse a couple of months ago when the team started actively pursuing fullback Vonta Leach.

And although Leach was not signed, it still looked bad when Lane, a starter in 2012, was demoted behind Evan Rodriguez at one point in camp.

Well, where there's smoke ...

Jorvorskie Lane was cut by the Dolphins moments ago.

Lane tweeted, "Great organization thanks for the opportunity much respect! *backtothedrawingboard."

He's among the nine players the Dolphins will cut by 4 p.m. today. Also among the group are linebacker Michael Clay and wide receiver Julius Pruitt.

Stay tuned as more cuts are coming.

UPDATE:

The Dolphins announced they have terminated the contract of RG Lance Louis.

I would not be surprised if the Dolphins revisit with Louis after the first game if he is still available. You re-sign him at that point and don't have to guarantee his salary for the entire season. Had he been on roster the first week, team would have had to guarantee $1.6 million.

They have also cut WR Jeff Fuller, DE Emeka Onyenekwu, WR Andrell Smith, LB Nathan Williams, LB David Hinds, and the aforementioned Pruitt, Lane and Clay.

First

Mando,
Can you not just get you hands on the cut list and publish it?

ETF, try pulling on his ears.

I'm worried about Matt Moore, he's a good QB and all...

I wonder if they'll keep Rodriguez or use Clay...

Swa/#,
Dude no one cares about that shht anymore.

I know yopu admire me greatly and that is why you steal my handles and remember everything I've ever written.

I hate to break it to you but I do not feel the same way about you. I do not keep track of the 10-15 handles per day that you use in here, I do not keep track of the stuff you write, I don't care if you're lyeing or teeling the truth.

You admiration of me is and will always be unrequited.

Mando,
You are the team's beat writer, no?
Are you not entitled to the list of cut players?
Why do you have to go to league sources to find out what is going on with the team that you are employed to cover?
Shouldn't the 'league sources' be coming to you for Dolphins info?

Pruitt was a good special teams guy, oh well.

DD (from last blog), my condolences bro. I've been there too (my Mom) and I won't lie to you, it ain't easy, but you'll learn how to live with the loss over time. Just know the hurt never goes away (that's why I never say "you'll get over it."). There's no getting over the loss of a loved one, you just learn to deal with it. Good luck and hold on to your memories (that's all we have in the end).

Armando pissed as hell.

IMO, the writing was o the wall for Javorski Lane after the midpoint of 2012. Rookie wall or whatever, after midseason, all of sudden he could never convert on 3rd-4th and a foot.

Have you guys forgotten this?

Not only did his ability to convert on short yardage diminish in 2012. Lane's blocking on running plays began to diminish too. H started 2012 like a house afire. By midseason he began to regress before our very eyes.

DD,

My condolences to loss of your dad too. I'm sure he lived long and very well. Cheers to that.......

Pruitt has been training camp fodder for several years. I don't know why the kid bothers anymore.

Time to find a new profession.

Oscar,

Matt Moore was resigned over the offseason. It would be a monumental shocker if he were released. If the coaching staff felt that great about Devlin coming in, Moore would never have been resigned.

Devlin still has PS eligibility. This is where I expect to see him land. Moore is probably at least 99% safe.

Mark,

I don't want to intrude on DD's team if he wants to autopick, but if you want me to stand in then I'm game, just let me know what I need to do (and this will be my 3rd fantasy team I'm fielding this year, more reason not to BUDGE come Sundays).

DC, if you want in the league, send an emial address to [email protected]

u aren't intruding man, DD said you were a fine candidate to step in for him. You got to live up to Dunphy's standards tho - that's pretty high!!!

Pruitt's probably a kid that needed to go to Canada a few years. There he could get there necessary reps needed to develop into a legit 2nd-3rd depth chart wr.

Obviously he isn't quite good enough to stick on any nfl team's 53 man roster.

Plus, Pruitt doesn't seem good enough to win a st's return man's job. Making his ability to earn a 53 man spot nearly impossible

The 3 receiver scheme will not be as effective against teams that are good defensing the pass,so the most important cut which was made by fate(Keller)has to addressed by the braintrust.
I expect them to carry only two QBs this season as T-Hill is young and already has a full season of experience.

Armando...Dolphins Beat Writer-In-Crisis....everything he writes is negative and worrisome, the next upbeat article he writes about the Fins will be his first.

Exposing the fraud, you child. Mando works for the Miami Herald, which is a private corporation wholly separate from the Miami Dolphins, which is a different private corporation. Just because the Herald has made Mando the team's beat reporter does not force the Dolphins to share anything with him that they do not want to share. Perhaps after you graduate from high school, one day, you might be able to understand.

lance louis cut

Mark In Toronto,

I haven't a cue who it is, nor do I care. But, whomever, is having quite a laugh on all of you CJ clubbers.

Me too, especially when all of concluded it must be me simply because he used CJ. Wow, that has to make it indisputably conclusive, I guess no one else has ever used that term in here, save me.

You guys should form your own national "think tank". institute. If you multiply all of your IQ's by each other, youre sure to have a combined IQ score of at least 50. Just saying................

Anybody stupid enough to suggest that Matt Moore will be cut should be banned from the internet.

Ok with cuts except for lance Louis. Know he has been hurt but he seemed to do pretty well. Mgiven inconsistency of Jerry and Samuda I would have kept him. I know we have cap space and we know OLINE is potential problem. Not a fan of this one move.

Hope they find a Vet Guard to take a roster spot.

Guys, Lance Louis was just cut, Jullis Pruitt (again), thoughs are the notables.

Whatever YG, give it up man...

Bo Jackson,
The Miami Herald is a public corporation not a private one.
The Miami Dolphins are an S corporation because they fewer than 100 shareholders.

Bo knows...nothing

John Jerry is the new Tim Ruddy. Always on the replace list and yet always here ...

Louis just didn't have enough time to recover.

The selection of Dante Culpepper over Dree Brees set this franchise back years...

Lance Louis, another free agent bust. I still can't believe Nolan Carroll is on this team. The Lane cut does not surprise me. Glad he had some time in the NFL, his was a good story.

How is it a bust if it didn't cost the team a dime?

Good Work Fraud !


I love when someone who has grown up within the borders of
'The Greatest Economic Power That The World Has Ever Known'...

ACTUALLY KNOWS HOW IT OPERATES :)

Ok, sent the email Mark. I hope we can all still be friends after this though.

too bad about Louis.....he's good but obviously couldnt recover quick enough--thought we had some added depth on the OL.....time to hit the waiver wire.

lets get streeter

streeter or da'rick?

MassDolphan,

Seriously man? 'Louis another FA bust'? Where do you come up with this stuff? The guy was signed to a one year contract to compete for a spot. He wasn't able to get healthy. The time doesn't have to guarantee his contract by cutting him. How does that make him a bust?

You make it sound like they signed him to a multi-year, big contract deal. It was a one year deal for small money.

Almost as funny as the guy this morning that called Clay, a SIXTH round pick, a 'bust'.

Honest to God, some of this stuff is funnier than the writers can come up with on some of the comedic sitcoms out there....LOL.

The selection of Jake Long instead of Matt Ryan sent the franchise back years also....

I'm not sure how to take the Lane cut. I wasn't a fan of this guy to start with, which meant Leach made all the more sense. But the team chose not to sign him.

so are they saying they don't really need a FB or are they saying they just wouldn't agree to Leach's terms? if it's number one then I'm fine but I'm not a fan of penny pinching if in fact it's number two.

Every year John Jerry is gonna be replaced, he sucks, he's fat and every year he beats the competition. Hell last year he led the team in offensive plays. Maybe he isn't as bad as everyone thinks. They need to find a way to motivate this guy. He obviously has talent.What do you think Mark in Toronto?

Louis was only 100k guaranteed. A bit disappointed it didn't work out though.

agree Tony, but Culpepper over Brees was MUCH worse....because at least Jake Long was good/very good....the player we took instead could play--Culpepper was shot, gave Miami nothing....while Brees heads to the HOF

Now, we'll see who stays or not. They've got to be down to 53 on Saturday. Players on the bubble better step it up against the Saints.

Not surprised about Lane or Pruitt based on last year and what they've done this year (nothing & nothing). Louis is a bit of a surprise, but they may bring him back after the season starts. I think he's still rehabbing and hasn't gotten back to 100%. The rest were camp fodder for the most part.

I've been thinking Miami might trade for a TE if they can find one. We're heavy at DT (and even QB), so you never know.

No argument with either one of you but the selection of Jeff Ireland as GM set the franchise back a decade!

Jake in PA,

If you listen to the so-called 'experts' on here, they would have told you 2-3 years ago that Jerry 'is a bust'. See these guys know more about OL play that you and me and obviously more than the coaching staff.

And yet he's still here. Maybe these 'experts' aren't as smart as they think they are.

"bust" only applies to 1st and mid/high 2nd round picks, and some high profile FAs in their prime.....by definition--thats it--others could be "disappointing"--"lousy pick".....but a 3rd or 4th rounder or later, or a flyer/mid tier free agent, cant be a bust--unless you're a knucklehead.....but then again, no shortage of those.

Can you stop tooting your own horn for 2 minutes to realize Jerry is ONLY here because everyone else behind him sucks?

No, it's NOT because you think you know the OL more than anyone else here.

it's because Samsunda blows. Garner is always banged up & Louis wasn't ready.

God, you're obnoxious.

Jake, I aalways liked Jerry, but more as a tackle. He's pretty valuable. Wish he would take better care of his body though.

Its pinching pennies. Philbin said he absolutely wanted Leach signed but Ross is too friggin cheap. Heck, he wouldnt even pay to fix his own decrepid stadium. The place wreaks of urine and the paint is peeling off almost every wall.

Gotta trust Philbin when he says the best 53 will make the team. We got about 5 guys like Yeatman (T), Miller(TE), Stanford (CB), Kaddu (LB) and McCray (S) that may make it initially but be replaced by waiver pick ups. No way the keep Devlin on active roster. Only team that could possibly poach him is Buffalo.He will be PS.

Just because a guy sees playing time for a crap team doesnt mean he isnt a bust. See Chad Henne, John Beck, D Thomas.

Jerry's only issue is his weight.....his play is inconsistent at times but thats not uncommon--he's decent when he has his weight under control....also a 3rd round pick, so hardly a huge investment there--whats the problem with Jerry?

FYI,

Yeah I know, you're one of the guys who knows all about what it takes to make a good OL. Educate us, would you please....

Only thing is, try doing it under one name. You MIGHT start earning a little more credibility if you did that.

To recap, you and many other morons told us 'Jerry is a bust', a few years ago.....and yet he's still starting for this team. They've had 2-3 drafts a FAs now to find his replacement and yet he's still starting. Could it be that he's not nearly as bad as you and others have made him out to be. Possibly maybe?

Posted by: Monte | August 27, 2013 at 04:54 PM

Jerry is a pure Tackle. He has always done well there. Hopefully he takes over RT next year and they can find the RG and TE of the future next year with the presumed new GM

Define bust? Because there are a lot of players that would be busts. Was Brees a bust in San Diego? I don't think so. The team at the time did think he was a bust and let him walk.
Morons around here think that players that come in and then go are busts. Many just don't fit the system. Many have a talent but have shortcomings that get them punted off the team.
I don't see any player as a bust. In football there are few saviours. It is a total team game. Team players make the team win.
Sometimes skill sets don't match what the team wants. Sometimes there are injuries. Sometimes the guy has had enough of football and is going through the motion.
Doesn't make them a bust.

Monte,

That's one THEORY....but doesn't mean you're right.

As I said, they've had 2-3 years to replace Jerry through the draft or FA. They haven't done that. they obviously don't believe he's as bad as you or others think. I'll trust their judgement over a peon like you.

Define bust?

Posted by: klndry | August 27, 2013 at 05:01 PM

95% of Jeff Irelands draft picks LOL

Doubtful they will resign Louis after week 1. If that was in their mind they would have waited until next week to cut him.It would have given teams less time to sign him. They are basically saying go ahead and sign him at your own risk.
