After concluding their veteran mini camp, and with the 2016 NFL draft just hours away, the Miami Dolphins have released five players. Those players are:
Defensive back Damarr Aultman
Wide receiver Tyler Davis
Wide receiver Robert Herron
Defensive tackle Robert Thomas II
Linebacker Terrell Manning
The most notable of the five is Davis, who was a two-way star in the German League, earning MVP honors with 94 catches for 1,733 yards, and snagging six interceptions as a defensive back as well. But at 5’-10”and 178 pounds, Davis was a long shot to make the Dolphins, as they have three solid starters in Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills. Barring the draft, Matt Hazel and Griff Whalen are expected to fill out the 4th and 5th wide receiver spots.
The rest of the released players were reserve/futures players. Herron was signed as a wide receiver, but the Dolphins attempted to move him to defensive back. Thomas has spent time on four NFL team practice squads in the past two years, while Manning has bounced around to NFL teams in his four years in the league.
