Dolphins Cut DT

In light of the season-ending knee injuries sustained by Ronnie Brown and Renaldo Hill last Sunday, the Dolphins will be making some roster moves this week. They got a start on Tuesday by releasing one of the defensive linemen they had recently signed.

Gone is defensive tackle Jesse Mahelona, one of three defensive linemen signed last week along with Derreck Robinson and Anthony Bryant.

Mahelona, a former draft pick of the Tennessee Titans, joined Bryant on the inactive list Sunday against the Patriots, while Robinson was in uniform and saw action.

The move left the Dolphins with 52 players on the active roster, but that number will drop to 50 once Brown and Hill are placed on injured reserve.

That means that as many as three new players will be added to the roster.

According to The Miami Herald, defensive end Quentin Moses and safety Lance Schulters already have been signed, but that wasn't official as of Wednesday morning.

It would be a return to Miami for Schulters, who played for the Dolphins in 2005 before spending some time in Atlanta last season.
