Dolphins Cut DE Tank Carradine

Tank Carradine‘s tenure with the Dolphins has ended after four preseason games.’s Tom Pelissero reports (via Twitter) that Miami has released the veteran defensive end.

While the 29-year-old ended up sitting out most of the 2018 season, it still sounded like the Dolphins had relatively high hopes for him. After joining the team in February, Carradine started the first three preseason games for Miami, but he was limited to only a single tackle during those appearances. With the Dolphins in the midst of a rebuild, the organization decided to ultimately go with the younger route.

Carradine has yet to live up to his status as a 2013 second-round pick. The edge rusher’s best season came in 2014 when he had three sacks in nine games. However, Carradine has done a decent job of generating pressure off of the edge, despite his low sack totals. In 2017, his production would have placed him among Pro Football Focus’ top 50 edge defenders if he had enough snaps to qualify. Therefore, it wouldn’t be shocking if he catches on with a team in need of defensive-line help.
