The Miami Dolphins have a tall task ahead of themselves this spring if they want to become relevant once again the AFC Playoff race.
That might start out at quarterback with Miami moving on from longtime starter Ryan Tannehill. However, general manager Chris Grier must also address other areas. That includes cutting some of the veteran fat of the team’s roster. As of right now, Miami is $8.83 million under the cap — the fourth-smallest figure in the NFL.
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, this will include cutting former Pro Bowl pass rusher Robert Quinn and fellow defensive lineman Andre Branch.
Coupled together, the two moves would save Miami $16.9 million against the cap.
