Dolphins continue purge, release WR Amendola

March 8, 2019 Sports 2 Views The Miami Dolphins continued their roster purge by releasing veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola, the team announced Friday. The move saves the Dolphins $ 6 million in cap space. Miami released defensive than Andre Branch and guard Ted Larsen on Thursday, saving over $ 9 million Amendola, 33, led the Dolphins in receiving last season with 575 yards on 59 catches. He continued to show his toughness and knack for finding open zones out of the slot with the Dolphins. Entering his 1 1th season, Amendola has had a nice career after starting as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2008. He signed last two March, $ 12 million deal last March, leaving New England after five seasons. The Dolphins liked Amendola and the leadership that he brought to the locker room, but they didn't see him as a long-term fit for a rebuilding team at his price. Instead, the Dolphins seem to build on young receivers, including Albert Wilson, Kenny Stills and Jakeem Grant.
