The tweaking continues

The Dolphins continue to look for the right combination on their roster, and that led to more moves on Wednesday. The most prominent of those moves involved the release of veteran offensive lineman John St. Clair.

Technically, St. Clair had his contract terminated. You may remember that St. Clair started at right tackle for the Dolphins last year after joining the team as an unrestricted free agent. But he became an afterthought this year after the Dolphins signed another free agent lineman, this time Stockar McDougle.

The Dolphins added two new players on Wednesday, cornerback Kiwaukee Thomas and guard Joe Berger, who was signed off the Carolina Panthers practice squad.

The team also lost fullback Kyle Eckel, who got his orders to report from the Navy and was placed on the reserve/military list.

The Dolphins retain the rights to Eckel, a talented fullback, but don't know when he'll be allowed to play for them. They also got a roster exemption for Eckel, who was required to fulfill a military commitment after graduating from the Naval Academy.

As they waited for clarification on Eckel's roster status, the Dolphins had to create space on the roster, which is why they released linebacker Jason Glenn, who quickly was re-signed after the team found out Eckel wouldn't count against the roster.
