Per Andrew Abramson, the Miami Dolphins have parted ways with running back Daniel Thomas and RB/WR Marcus Thigpen.
Thomas, a former second-rounder, never managed to live up to his potential thanks to several injuries and poor development. He never showed that he had the vision to run through the tackles and never exhibited enough power to be considered a reliable option in short-yardage situations.
Thigpen had the fan base split, on the one hand there were fans who said that Thigpen was being misused and that he had the ability to be a weapon in this offense. Then there were those who said that Thigpen had never done anything before and he probably wouldn't do anything now.
Thigpen couldn't make his case as a rusher, and with the wide receiver corps as deep as it is, he couldn't earn a spot at that crowded position. His hopes of staying on as a return specialist were dashed by the emergence of rookie receiver Jarvis Landry and fellow receiver Damian Williams, who likely will make the team after a strong preseason.
Stay tuned for more cuts as the Dolphins inch ever closer to their final 53-man roster.
