Veteran safety Bobby McCain may be hitting the open market.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Dolphins have informed McCain that he is being released. With that information out, there’s a chance that a team will make the Dolphins a trade offer that keeps McCain from becoming a free agent before the day is out.

McCain’s departure via either avenue would create over $5.65 million in cap space while leaving over $1.48 million in dead money.

McCain was a 2015 fifth-round pick in Miami and he’s started 55 of the 87 games he’s played for the team. He has 254 tackles, seven interceptions, four sacks, and a forced fumble over the course of his time with the Dolphins.

  1. He’s a solid, dependable player. I trust the process, even if I don’t like it sometimes.

  2. Thank you Bobby! Fan favorite down here in Miami. Sad to see him go, always smiling in the community! Hopefully you catch on with a contender, or NE so we can still see you twice a year. Good person!

    “Dependable” is code for not talented which is what McCain is.

    If your making a run at a title and your FS gets hurt week 16, he’s a decent signing to be your 21st or 22nd worst starter.

    If your an expansion franchise looking to fill a roster with experience he’s a good signing.

    If your trying to go from playoff contender to super bowl contender, he’s a horrible signing.

  4. Maybe they worked a deal out with Malik Hooker? Will miss Bobby though, enjoyed watching him play.

    I noticed you didn’t mention the “Solid” statement I made. I like how you make your argument convenient to support your claim. Try again bud.

  6. The safety deficient Cowboys should be trying very hard to sign him. Cut some of the dead wood if necessary.

  7. Bottom line is McCain played well. He made some big plays and was dependable. He also seemed to be lost in communication sometimes. He is a Starter on most teams for sure. He is just not “worth his contract” and the same reason they let Kyle Van Noy walk. Drafting Holland being the best cover Safety in the draft it was expected. Rowe might be next!

  8. The Dolphins got a lot more out of McCain than several #1 & #2 draft picks!
