We have waived LB Trent Harris and DE Avery Moss.

While most teams are electing to cut undrafted rookies to get down to the option of reduced 80-player rosters for training camp, the Dolphins apparently decided they saw enough of Moss and Harris last season.
Moss started eight games for Miami in 2019 but his name was mentioned frequently this offseason as a player who wasn’t assured of a place on the team in 2020.
Harris, 24, signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2018. New England waived him coming out of the preseason and signed him to the practice squad.
The Patriots re-signed him to a futures contract in 2019 before waiving him again at the end of the preseason. The Dolphins claimed Harris off waivers.
Harris re-signed with Miami as an exclusive rights free agent this past offseason.
In 2019, Harris appeared in 11 games for the Dolphins and recorded 22 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble.
Moss, 25, was drafted by the Giants in the seventh round out of Youngstown State in 2017. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.65 million rookie contract when New York waived him coming out of the preseason in 2018.
Moss caught on with the Giants practice squad and spent the rest of the season there. He was brought back on a futures deal for the 2019 season but waived again coming out of the preseason. He was claimed by the Dolphins.
In 2019, Moss appeared in 11 games for the Dolphins, recording 25 total tackles and one forced fumble.
