Dolphins Roster Cuts Including QB Josh Freeman

Update:

The Miami Dolphins have released QB Josh Freeman on Friday, as they trim their roster down to 53 players, according to Mike Freeman.

The Dolphins’ roster cuts include:

Freeman, 27, was taken in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Buccaneers. He wound up playing four years for the Bucs before they cut him loose in July of 2012.

The Vikings wasted no time in signing him to a contract, however, it proved to be a disastrous decision for both parties. Freeman later caught on with the Giants in April of last year, but he lasted a little over a month in New York before he was once again released.

The Dolphins elected to give Freeman another shot this past in April, but released him after a few weeks. However, Miami elected to bring him back for training camp.

In 2013, Freeman appeared in just four games and 42.9 percent of his passes for 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
