Miami Dolphins: Breaking Down a Day of Surprising and Impactful Final Cuts

The Miami Dolphins made 27 roster moves today, trimming their roster from 80 players to just 53 in line with the NFL's regular season limit.

Twenty-six of those players were waived or outright released, and offensive tackle Lydon Murtha was surprisingly placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn ligament in his toe. You can see a full list of the Dolphins' roster moves here.

I'd projected the Dolphins' 53-man roster multiple times over the past month, and did fairly well in my predictions. (Bow to me, those of you that thought the Dolphins wouldn't cut Will Allen or Lousaka Polite!)

However, there were definitely some surprises, among those cut as well as those not cut. In this article, I'll go position by position discussing my thoughts on the moves the Dolphins made (or didn't make) as well as look at players the team might target on the waiver wire.

It's important to remember that the 53 players that survived today won't necessarily be the 53 that are with the team on Sept. 12 against the Patriots. The Dolphins will be scouring the waiver wires for depth and hidden gems, so a handful more Dolphins could get released in the coming days.
