    Dolphins cuts have started

    Adam Beasley@AdamHBeasley11m
    It begins: RB Jonas Gray has been cut by the Dolphins. Had a long road back from a knee injury in college


    I agree with this move, I was very underwhelmed by him this preseason

    Guess they're going with Thomas as our goal line back. Not sure how that's gonna work

    He has PS eligibility left. Wouldn't be suprised if he wound up on there again. Especially with Thomas's injury history.

    Might want to pick up Lance Ball, who was cut by the Broncos and is a very similar player, but with more of a track record of success in the NFL.

    Not surprised, I never really got the hype with him. He was talked up big time during the offseason by some, had a couple of flashes in the preseason against 3rd stringers, but not much else.

    Gillislee locked up a roster spot in april. No chance he gets cut.

    Don't kid yourself, he only made it cause no one else did anything at all. To be fair, he does show some promise in the passing game.

    He will be heavy contributor on special teams. When was the last time a dolphins 5th round pick didn't make the team?

    Me too. I chuckled at the "he's got a better burst than Thomas" posts etc. The UDFA guys always seem to get viewed differently than the higher draft picks.

    Well said.

    I actually think it might be easier to follow with 20 separate threads.

    Gillislee seemed to be playing slow. Probably because he is a rookie adjusting. Against NO I thought his play speed was better and he was more decisive. Jonas Gray had the fumble last week and didn't show much against NO. This is the right move.

    Gillislee can do everything, but he creates nothing if that makes sense.

    It's too bad. He looked great in his first two preseason games (he was easily the second back after those two) but the last three he's looked horrible.

    I had high hopes for Gray after he ran hard in the Dallas and Jax games but that was his high water mark and Gillislee ran strong the last game when given the carries.

    PS maybe for Gray but to be honest power backs that average 3 yards a carry are a dime a dozen.

    Jonas Gray had a terrible preseason. His YPC in the last 4 preseason games was 1.1, 1.5, 2.3, and 3.5 (and that was against scrubs in the 2nd halves of these games)

    He isn't an NFL player

    Gillislee really brings nothing to the table as a runner, but he's a good pass blocker.

    He brought absolutely nothing to the team. Glad he wasn't injured this year, so we could see that and move on finally.

    Not good. DT has some of the worst vision if short yardage that I have ever seen. Guess it will be Miller in short yardage.

    I agree Jonas didnt show much this preseason,but lets be honest he didnt have anything remotely close to a line in front of him. The second team line blows,he would have been solid #3 behind starters

    Dolphins finalizing plans to waive TE Kyle Miller. Will consider him for practice squad.

    And the second-team line was playing against second-team defenses, as well.

    Gray seemed to gain between 1 and 2 yards on every carry. No big loss but I wish him well.

    Only problem is that MIAMI ain't got one!!! NOT EVEN ONE!!!

    Remember a while back, when MIAMI had 3rd and inches to sustain a good, developing drive and didn't make it, then tried AGAIN on 4th Down and failed again? And lost the game by a FG or some such? I remember it like it was yesterday, and JONAS GRAY would have at least solved THAT problem. Now, MIAMI's back to "square one", and that problem's back, bigtime! From what I saw in these preseason games, we have d*ck for power HBs now. First truly stupid thing that I've seen MIAMI do all preseason!! A shame.

    The Dolphins will release Jonas Gray later today, but there's a strong possibility he might end up on the practice squad if he's not claimed

    A perfect synopsis. And as another poster said, power backs that average what he has are a dime a dozen. If you need one in a pinch, you can find one on the street.

    ---------- Post added at 01:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:20 PM ----------

    Egnew is making the team for sure IMHO. I never doubted that. He was pretty active in camp catching balls. I think the progress is noteworthy.
