Dolphins Waive DL Robert Nkemdiche, Sign CB Marcus Sherels

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins have waived DL Robert Nkemdiche on Tuesday.

Nkemdiche, 25, was taken in the first round out of Ole Miss by the Cardinals back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.6 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1,122,808 for the 2019 season when the Cardinals waived him. 

Arizona declined Nkemdiche’s fifth-year option back in May and later moved on from him after he showed up to training camp out of shape. The Dolphins later signed him to a one-year, $1.16 million deal.

Miami just recently activated Nkemdiche from the PUP list. 

In 2018, Nkemdiche appeared in 10 games for the Cardinals and recorded 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.

Sherels, 31, wound up signing on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota back in 2010. He has played nine years of his NFL career in Minnesota and just finished out a one-year contract with Minnesota. 

Sherels later signed on with the Saints, but was released coming out of the preseason. He had another brief stint with the Vikings. 

In 2019, Sherels has appeared in three games for the Vikings and recorded nine kickoff return yards and 33 punt return yards. 

Williams, 22, signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State following the 2019 NFL Draft. He signed a three-year deal worth $1.755 million. 

In 2019, Williams appeared in eight games for the Dolphins and caught 32 passes for 428 yards (13.4 YPC) and three touchdowns.
