Dolphins Cut DT Daviyon Nixon

The Miami Dolphins announced they waived DT Daviyon Nixon on Thursday. 


Nixon, 25, is a former fifth-round pick by the Panthers in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Iowa. He was entering the second year of a four-year deal worth $3,798,548 when Carolina cut him loose.

Nixon was later brought back to the team’s practice squad following the final roster cuts before being called up a few weeks into the regular season. He was cut again later in the season, and had a brief stint with the Seahawks. 

He caught on with the Dolphins in March. 

In 2022, Nixon appeared in seven games for the Panthers and recorded six tackles and no sacks.
