The first wave of roster cuts claimed nine Miami Dolphins players today. Among that group, which you can see in full in this article by Bleacher Report's own Erik Frenz, was surprise cuts like fullback Jorvorskie Lane and offensive lineman Lance Louis.
The Dolphins now have until this Saturday to trim their roster from 75 players to 53. That's no easy task, especially with a handful of positions that would benefit from greater depth.
It gets murkier when you consider the number of Dolphins who have had strong preseasons and training camps. This time of year is perhaps the most unenviable period for any team's front office, yet it is a part of the business.
That said, we're going to take on the tough job of deciding who suits up for the season opener against Cleveland in a week and a half and who starts looking elsewhere for work. It's time to make the call on the Dolphins' six remaining most difficult cuts.
