Walton was arrested three times in less than three months, which ultimately led to his release from the Bengals. He later received six months probation for pleading no contest to a misdemeanor weapons charge.
Walton, 22, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2018. Cincinnati waived him and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Dolphins.
Walton is in the second year of his four-year, $3,145,348 and set to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.
In 2019, Walton has appeared in seven games for the Dolphins and rushed for 201 yards on 53 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 89 yards and no touchdowns.
