Dolphins Waive/Injured CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu

This offseason, there has been a bit of buzz in Miami around the addition of cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. The cornerback fell to the Browns in the seventh-round of the 2015 draft due to a torn ACL and a dislocated bone in his right knee. The Oregon product had not been on the field since the 2015 Rose Bowl, but the Dolphins believed that he could be an impact player and claimed him off waivers in April. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (vertical)

Unfortunately, the young athlete has suffered yet another setback and will not be suiting up for the Dolphins this season. The team waived/injured Ekpre-Olomu when he tore his other ACL in practice, Ian Rapoport of tweets.

The Dolphins weren’t the only team with high hopes for the 23-year-old. Before Ekpre-Olomu was claimed off waivers by Miami, the Saints, Bills, and Steelers all reportedly tried to claim him. Alas, he’ll have to wait until next season to give football another try. For the Dolphins, the news is unfortunate considering their lack of depth at cornerback.

To fill Ekpre-Olomu’s spot, the Dolphins have added fellow cornerback Al Louis-Jean.

    Once again the Dolphins ignore the weakest link on their team. It reminds me of the 3-4 years we didn’t take the OL seriously. Remember how we drafted Dion Jordan instead of a stud OL? Now we sign other people’s cast offs as DBs and hope they play above their talent. If Leon Hall or Cramartie would sign, it would help. We have cap room. Just more proof they need to carry the unspent cap space into the 2017 season and that this year is going to be ANOTHER crap year.
