A day after formulating their 53-man roster the Dolphins cut veteran
defensive linemen Marques Douglas and Charles Grant, offensive linemen
Cory Procter, and placed cornerback Will Allen on injured reserve.
Why did they abandon all four players, who served as insurance plans
for 2010? Because they poached four linemen off the waiver wire and
needed to make room for them.
The Dolphins landed defensive ends Clifton Geathers, a sixth-round
pick who was cut by the Browns, and Robert Rose, an undrafted free
agent from Ohio State who spent camp with the Seahawks, and offensive
linemen Joe Reitz and Jermey Parnell.
