Dolphins waive linebacker Marcus Thompson

To add guard Daryn Colledge, the Dolphins had to free up a roster spot to stay at the 90-player limit. That move came Tuesday, with the club waiving rookie linebacker Marcus Thompson, an undrafted free agent from Rutgers.

The 6-foot-1, 250-pound Thompson notched 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 2013 for the Scarlet Knights, for whom he started 26 career games. He signed with the Dolphins on May 13.

Thompson will be on waivers for one day. If he goes unclaimed, he will be a free agent. In a feature written by the Dolphins’ website this spring, Thompson indicated other clubs had shown interest in him as a post-draft signing.

    I’d rather go undrafted and choose my team/system rather than a very late round pick. Im guessing this was a bad choice for him.

    The Dolphins are so stacked defensively, they’d probably put an in-his-prime A.J. Duhe on the taxi squad.

    He’ll end up on the Patriots with the rest of Schiano former crew

    He should actually sign with LB needy teams like Atlanta or New York Giants.

    So which is worse, getting waived by the Dolphins or dropping down the depth chart in Oakland?

    Quick Coach Belichick -Grab him! After all he did go to Rutgers.

    Getting waived by the Dolphins of course. He had a chance (though very outside) to be with one of the most promising up and coming teams. It would be quite depressing sliding down what is a depth chart bereft of talent like Oakland.
