After trimming the roster to 75 players on Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins must cut 22 more in order to create the final 53-man roster by Saturday at 6 pm ET.
Although the Dolphins already have a pretty concrete idea of which players will travel to Cleveland for the season opener in just over one week's time, tonight's preseason game against the Saints will allow them to determine which bubble players will join them.
Here is my official projection of the Dolphins 53-man roster including the 22 players I believe will be cut in the process:
Quarterbacks (2): Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore
Cuts: Pat Devlin, Aaron Corp
Notes: Devlin hasn't played well during the preseason and it would be wise for the Dolphins to add depth at another position instead of keeping a third quarterback on the active roster. Unless Devlin is poached by a team in need of QB depth, he will be on the practice squad.
Running Backs (3): Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee
Cuts: Jonas Gray
Notes: Gray could be kept as a solution in short yardage situations but I don't see the Dolphins keeping four running backs.no comments
