The Dolphins inched closer to the NFL-mandated roster limit of 65 (not counting roster exemptions) by making a couple more moves on Monday, including a trade.

Safety Scott McGarrahan got his wish on Monday when the Dolphins traded him to Green Bay for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2006. McGarrahan hadn't practiced for several days after asking the Dolphins to be traded.

McGarrahan figured he was going to get cut anyway because he stood as the sixth safety and the Dolphins will only keep five.

McGarrahan rejoined the team for which he played three seasons (1998-2000) before he joined the Dolphins in 2001.

"It's good for Scott," said Coach Dave Wannstedt. "He's a winner. He helped us win a lot of game, it's just that the numbers were just tight there at safety."

The other two roster moves on Monday came in the form of two wide receivers being released: Chris Jackson, the former Arena League star, and Margin Hooks.

They joined nine other players who were released on Saturday: TE Dejhown Mandley, WR Jimmy Fryzel, T Morgan Pears, T Mark Bristol, G Dwayne Pierce, DT Tavares Jurineack, LB Devin Lemons, CB Cedric Donaldson and DB Terrance Leftwich.

The Dolphins still have a few moves left to make and they have until Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET to do so.
