Dolphins make moves to reach 75-man limit

The Dolphins are down to the NFL mandated 75 man roster limit after making 11 moves today.

Here are the moves:


DT A.J. Francis

RB Mike Gillislee

TE Arthur Lynch



WR Armon Binns

TE Brett Brackett

CB Steven Clarke

DE Rakim Cox

DT Cory Grissom

C Tyler Larsen

WR Ryan Spadola



QB Brady Quinn

Francis has some sort of knee issue and hasn't practiced in a week. Lynch did not play the entire preseason and practiced only a limited basis. He was dealing with a back issue. Gillislee had an open door to win the No. 3 RB job but injured a two weeks ago and hasn't been able to practice or play since.

They are out for the year.

I really like Brakett. I thought he was a hard worker with a great attitude. He was a quarterback-friendly tight end who needs to work on his blocking. I hope the Dolphins invest a practice squad roster spot on him.

The tight end position is interesting now for the Dolphins. With Michael Egnew, Lynch and Brackett effectively gone, that leaves Charles Clay, Dion Sims, Kyle Miller, Evan Wilson and Harold Hoskins. I would not be surprised if the Dolphins are looking for tight end help.
