Saturday moves: None
Analysis: As mentioned before, Feeley's performance in the preseason finale was so bad there was speculation it could lead to him being released. As it is, word is he has dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart behind projected starter Frerotte and then Rosenfels.
Saturday moves: Waived Lamar Gordon and Jamar Martin, placed Ricky Williams on reserve/suspended list, signed Jesse Chatman
Analysis: The addition of Chatman is solid because he's a better runner than either Morris or Minor, who both made the club because of their versatility and special teams prowess. Gordon being cut wasn't a big surprise, and it didn't make last year's trade of a No. 3 pick to get him look real goo.
Saturday moves: Waived Maurice Mann; placed on injured reserve Derrius Thompson
Analysis: This was one of the easiest positions to figure and nothing came as a surprise. The only thing of note was Thompson being placed on IR. We're getting the feeling he'll be gone as soon as he's healthy or an injury settlement is reached.
Saturday moves: Waived Donald Lee, Jason Rader and John Owens
On the 53-man roster: Lorenzo Diamond, Alex Holmes, Randy McMichael
Analysis: Lee being waived was expected because he's too inconsistent and makes too many mistakes. The big surprise here is Holmes being kept over Owens, who had been acquired in a trade because of his blocking ability. We knew Nick Saban liked Holmes, but Holmes was nothing short of dreadful in the preseason finale.
Saturday moves: Waived Rodney Reed, Jason Thomas and Taylor Whitley; waived/injured Eric Wilson; terminated the contract of Damion Cook; placed on injured reserve Wade Smith
Analysis: Again, not a whole lot of surprises here. The release of Whitley puts the fnial stamp on another bad draft picks for the previous regime. Remember, this guy was a No. 3 choice who didn't play as a rookie, started but then got yanked in his second year and didn't even make the team in his third. Yuck!
Saturday moves: Waived Reggie Rhodes and Dario Romero; waived/injured Matt Walters; placed on injured reserve Kevin Vickerson; terminated from reserve/PUP Larry Chester
Analysis: The only question here was whether the Dolphins would keep both rookies, Wright and Vickerson, and Vickerson's knee injury made the decision easy. It's actually a shame he'll lose his rookie season because of a cheap shot because he was making some real progress and was much further along than Wright. The move to let Chester go certainly is interesting.
Saturday moves: Waived Winston Taylor
Analysis: Once Brendon Ayanbadejo was traded to Chicago early last week, this became pretty obvious.
Saturday moves: Waived Tony Bua, Deandre Eiland, Jack Hunt
Analysis: It was difficult to predict what was going to happen here because the Dolphins don't have much top-shelf talent in the secondary. Bua is yet another draft pick gone very quickly. Eiland was a guy we thought might have a chance, but the Dolphins instead wound up going with more experienced players.
Saturday moves: Waived P Donnie Jones
Analysis: The big surprise here occurred Tuesday when veteran long-snapper Ed Perry was let go. After Jones' big performance in the preseason finale, there was some thought he might have a chance to unseat Turk, but the veteran simply was more consistent throughout the summer. Still, we get the feeling we haven't seen the last of Jones around these parts.
