Cut Saturday: Aaron Corp (waived-injured)
Breakdown: The only question here was whether the Dolphins would keep a third quarterback, and apparently Devlin did enough to convince them to do just that. We might never know for sure, but it's possible Devlin saved his spot on the roster with his late-game heroics Thursday night.
Cut Saturday: Jonas Gray
Breakdown: Nothing surprising here. Gray just fizzled after a strong start to the preseason and didn't appear to have much of a shot. The only intrigue here was whether the Dolphins would decide to go without a single fullback on the roster.
Breakdown: This was one position to produce a little bit of a surprise, if only because the Dolphins decided to keep only four wide receivers on their initial 53-man roster. Of course, don't forget that Thigpen could play here in a pinch and the Dolphins also could add somebody Sunday or Monday. A good guess is that one or two of the released players will wind up on the practice squad.
Cut Saturday: Kyle Miller
Breakdown: No surprise here, either. Miller seemed like he had a good shot at making the team heading into camp but he really got hurt by the injury he sustained in the Hall of Fame Game.
Breakdown: Once Lance Louis' contract was terminated last week, this became pretty much a slam dunk, both in terms of the number kept and the players kept.
Breakdown: Francis and Okpalaugo played well in the preseason to earn roster spots, but they seemed to be facing very long odds regardless because of the Dolphins' depth at the position. The one surprise here is Randall, who showed some good things both last season and this preseason. He's not practice-squad eligible, but Francis and Okpalaugo are.
Breakdown: We've said for a while this was going to be a tough decision among the backups, and maybe the toughest cut was not Spitler but Robinson, who looked very good in coverage throughout the preseason.
Breakdown: This one was interesting because 11 is an unusually high number of defensive backs to have on the roster. In fact, we would expect one of the 11 kept to be gone before too long. The two who appear most vulnerable would be Don Jones and Stanford, although Stanford has special teams value.
Cut Saturday: None
Breakdown: Nothing to discuss here. This was set the second Dan Carpenter's contract was terminated.
