Brady Quinn cut, announces it on twitter, Binns too

Brady Quinn has been released by the Dolphins.

The former first round pick of the Cleveland Browns announced his departure on twitter.

"It was short lived but I enjoyed every second," Quinn wrote. "Thank you @MiamiDolphins for the opportunity to play the game I love again. Best of luck to..all the players and coaches this season!"

[Update: The Dolphins are also cutting WR Armon Binns, according to a source. Unsurprising.]

As I reported earlier, Quinn was not going to start Thursday's game versus St. Louis as some have speculated.

By the way, Quinn came to the Dolphins after winning a workout competition against John Skelton and Rex Grossman two weeks ago. And then he was bad in practice.

He threw an interception to Reshad Jones in practice today. That was his sixth interception in practice the past five sessions.

The Dolphins are in the process of making more cuts today. They have to make 10 more roster moves by 4 p.m.

The release of Quinn all but assures something I reported last week, which is the team has been leaning a long time toward keeping only two quarterbacks and having one on the practice squad.
