The Dolphins have begun to get down to the 53 man roster limit.
The team moments ago told tight end Kyle Miller he is being released.
Miller, with the team the past two seasons, was vying for the third tight end job with Gator Hoskins and Evan Wilson.
After Thursday night's game against St. Louis, coach Joe Philbin was asked about the glut at tight end. The first player he mentioned unsolicited in positive terms was Hoskins.
“I think Gator Harold Hoskins, the last couple of weeks, has done a good job," Philbin said.
The team must cut down to the NFL mandated 53-man limit by 4 p.m. Saturday. It might be done before that.
