Today the Miami Dolphins announced that they have terminated the contract of two players, waived 18 others, and acquired versatile offensive lineman Pat McQuistan from the Cowboys for an undisclosed draft pick.
There are some definite surprises here, starting with the fact that TE David Martin, re-signed midway through training camp, has had his contract terminated. The team can, of course, bring him back early in the regular season, which could change the amount of guaranteed money that he is owed.
The Dolphins practiced in the bubble this afternoon and afterwards coach Tony Sparano met with the media and discussed, among other things, the team’s pending trade of WR Greg Camarillo to the Vikings for CB Benny Sapp.
When talking about the trade, Sparano said that WR was a “strong unit” and that he has been impressed with all of the guys throughout training camp, which makes it clear why the team was comfortable trading away a guy as reliable as Camarillo (he had literally zero drops last season).
