Miami Dolphins released some veterans on cut day

On Friday, the Dolphins have released two receivers and two linebackers, who were expected to contributed to the team this fall.

Clyde Gates, who was a 2011 fourth-round pick and Roberto Wallace, who was in second year were released.

Wallace, caught five passes for 82 yards in the preseason, but Marlon Moore passed in on the depth chart. Gates, who was said to be the faster player on the Dolphins' roster, caught only three passes for 33 yards, and ran one reverse for 11 yards.

Jamaal Westerman, a linebacker who played his first three season with the New York Jets and former New England Patriot Gary Guyton, were also released on Friday.

Other notable players that have been released so far are defensive tackle Ryan Baker, a three-year veteran of the team, rookie receivers B.J Cunningham and Jeff Fuller, and cornerbacks Vincent Agnew, Quinten Lawrence and Kevyn Scott.

The Dolphins have until 9 p.m. Friday night to cut their roster down to 53 players.
