They’re cleaning house in Miami today. The Dolphins are releasing running back Isaiah Pead, according to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News (on Twitter).
Pead reportedly missed a meeting in advance of Miami’s Week 2 matchup against New England, which led him and fellow meeting-skipper Damien Williams to be inactive for that game. That incident didn’t endear him to coaches and his play this season hasn’t done him any favors either. In three games, Pead has eight carries for 22 yards plus one catch for six yards. After his so-so work in an extremely limited sample, Miami is shaking up the RB depth chart.
Earlier today, the Dolphins also cut offensive linemen Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas.
