According to Sports Agent Andy Simms twitter account(@AndySimms) CB Benny Sapp has been released by the Dolphins.
I am not sure of the stat but I can’t imagine many CB’s that have given up 99.5 yard touchdown passes have lived to keep their jobs the next day.
While Sapp did show some promise this off-season battling off veteran Will Allen to win the starting nickel job, he was just too big of a liability in the secondary.
Sapp struggled most of last year getting abused by many NFL slot receivers and having a knack for giving up the big play.
Safe bet is that Miami will have to give Will Allen a huge apology and try to bring him back on the squad. Not positive exactly what Miami’s next move will be but the defense that got torched for 517 yards by Tom Terrific certainly can use some improvement in the back end.
