The Miami Dolphins have informed defensive tackle Anthony Johnson that he will make the 53-man roster while also telling Tevin Mims and Garrison Smith that they will be released.
Johnson has shown an incredible amount of skill as an undrafted free agent and is very deserving of his spot. His cause was helped by A.J. Francis being placed on the injured reserve list.
Defensive end Tevin Mims and defensive tackle Garrison Smith both were fighting for roster spots, Smith in particular did very well against the St. Louis Rams, but the Dolphins felt neither of them warranted a spot on the final 53. Smith may however find himself on the practice squad as he showed a lot of grit and determination, especially in the final preseason game.
