The Dolphins are apparently settling all the family business today.
In addition to the earlier releases of offensive linemen Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner, the team is parting ways with some non-blockers as well.
According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the Dolphins are also releasing running back Isaiah Pead.
After struggling with a hamstring injury early, Pead has just eight carries for 22 yards this season.
It seems clear at this point, the 1-4 Dolphins are making decisions about the organization’s direction, and discarding any veteran players with limited upside. At this point, they might as well look at the kids (either theirs or other people’s), especially at positions where they aren’t exactly deep or talented.
