In other roster moves Saturday, the Dolphins waived/injured tackle Jeff Adams and quarterback Aaron Corp. They also waived guard Chris Barker, center Sam Brenner, wide receiver Chad Bumphis, wide receiver Keenan Davis, defensive tackle A.J. Francis, running back Jonas Gray, safety Keelan Johnson, safety Jordan Kovacs, tackle Andrew McDonald, tight end Kyle Miller, defensive end Tristan Okpalaugo, cornerback Julian Posey, cornerback Deā€™Andre Presley, defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, defensive tackle Tracy Robertson, linebacker Lee Robinson, linebacker Austin Spitler and wide receiver Brian Tyms.

    I would like to see A.J. Francis make the practice squad, if not, then pick up be another team. Bill

    I wonder if the Chiefs make a claim on McNutt, given that Reid drafted him…

    I don’t agree with the AJ Francis cut….it never fails every preseason some player(s) gets cut that I think could have helped the team and earned a roster spot.

    I’m sure a lot of this cuts were very hard to made….
