    Via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins cut veteran defensive end Avery Moss Sunday. The team also announced the release of linebacker Trent Harris.

    Moss started eight games for them last year after being claimed off waivers from the Giants. The Dolphins invested heavily at the position this offseason, bringing in Shaq Lawson and Emmanuel Ogbah in free agency.

    The Dolphins also released wide receiver Ricardo Louis and quarterback Jake Rudock Saturday, parting ways with some guys who have been in NFL camps and on rosters heading into camp, rather than the unknown commodities.

    I think the argument of unknown commodities is interesting.

    On the one hand, the player you are counting on stepping up in the rotation could be a downgrade. Not the starters necessarily, but depth wise.

    On the other, if the commodities you know arent good enough and you know that, the chance of finding something better depth wise could be very much better for you long term even if the initial result is a negative.

    Obviously there are also things like cap concerns, roster space and so forth to deal with in certain situations.

    There are always those players that are drafted that turn out to be gems. Few but those coaches that can find them this year may get guys on the cheap. I think a lot of guys are going to churn as Covid takes out players during the year.
