There was talk for a few weeks now that Gibson was likely to be among the players released by the Dolphins, so this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.
Gibson, 27, still had one year remaining on his three-year, $9.755 million contract that included $3.75 million guaranteed. He would have made a base salary of $3.225 million for the 2015 season.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Gibson will free up $3,260,000 in available cap space while creating $1 million in dead money.
In 2014, Gibson caught 29 passes for 295 yards receiving and a touchdown over the course of 19 games. Pro Football Focus has Gibson rated as the No. 100 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
