The Miami Dolphins have decided to move on from their 2014 fifth round draft pick, parting ways with tight end Arthur Lynch this morning. Lynch becomes one of the first picks under general manager Dennis Hickey’s regime to not pan out as expected.
Lynch spent his rookie year on injured reserve with a back injury, and was considered a long shot to make the Dolphins roster this season.
He was listed behind Gerell Robinson and Jake Stoneburner on the depth chart as the third tight end, and will end his short Dolphins career without having appeared in a game or caught a pass for the team. Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims are the starters at that position.
The Dolphins signed second-year linebacker James Davidson to fill Lynch’s spot, most likely in an attempt to find some depth on a linebacker corps that has a lot of bodies but not a lot of quality.
