Dolphins Cut Five Including DT Adolphus Washington, OL Zach Sterup

According to Pro Football Talk, the Dolphins waived DT Adolphus Washington Sunday. 

Miami also released veteran OL Zach Sterup to make room for its five waiver claims, per Ian Rapoport. The Dolphins also waived S Montre Hartage, LB Terrill Hanks and TE Chris Myarick.

Washington, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Bills back in 2016. He was in the third year of his four-year, $3.189 million contract and set to make a base salary of $630,000 for the 2018 season when the Bills waived him.

Buffalo had been trying to trade Washington for a few years before they officially cut him loose. The Cowboys signed him to their practice squad before the Bengals added him to their active roster in late September.

The Bengals cut Washington loose this offseason, after which he landed in Miami.

In 2018, Washington appeared in five games and recorded eight tackles and a sack.

Sterup, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Nebraska back in 2017 but received an invite to participate in the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Chiefs later signed him to a three-year, $1.62 million contract.

Unfortunately, Sterup was waived him coming out of the preseason. He had a brief stint with the Jets before signing on to the Browns’ practice squad. 

The Dolphins signed Sterup off of the Browns’ practice squad during the 2017 season and he’s remained in Miami ever since. He re-signed in Miami as an exclusive rights free agent for the 2019 season. 

In 2018, Sterup appeared in six games for the Dolphins and made one start.
