The Dolphins have made some changes to their secondary.

The team has claimed cornerback Sammy Seamster and safety Brandian Ross off of waivers. General Manager Dennis Hickey announced the moves at a press conference on Sunday while also giving the word that wide receiver Damian Williams and safety Don Jones have been cut from the roster.

Seamster signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State this offseason, but was one of the team’s final cuts. He’s a big corner at 6-foot-1, but only made 10 starts at the collegiate level so he’s still got some growing to do if he’s going to be a productive part of the Dolphins defense.

Ross was waived by the Raiders a year after making 13 starts for them. He had 75 tackles and a forced fumble in Oakland and the team likely hopes he can help them weather the absence of Reshad Jones for the first four games of the season.
