Dolphins Promote DT Jamiyus Pittman From PS, Cut OT Sam Young


According to Joe Schad, the Dolphins promoted DT Jamiyus Pittman from their practice squad to the active roster and waived OT Sam Young to make room for him.

Young, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2010. He lasted just one year with Dallas before being claimed off of waivers by the Bills.

The Jaguars later claimed Young off of waivers from the Bills during the 2013 season before bringing him back on a two-year contract. Young signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins back in 2015 before agreeing to a one-year extension towards the end of the 2015 season.

The Dolphins brought Young back on a one-year contract this past March only to cut him loose when they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. They elected to re-sign him shortly after.

In 2017, Young appeared in 10 games for the Dolphins and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 48 offensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.

Pittman, 23, signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Central Florida back in May. He was among Miami’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and signed on with their practice squad once passing through waivers unclaimed.

During his four-year college career, Pittman recorded 138 total tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, four pass defenses, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.
