Dolphins Waive DT Gerald Willis, Five Others

Once a player thought to be a borderline Day 2 pick, Gerald Willis will again be in search of a new team. The Dolphins made the Miami native defensive tackle one of six players they waived Saturday.

The Dolphins also cut linebacker Jake Carlock, linebacker Jamal Davis, wide receiver Andy Jones, cornerback Linden Stephens and wide receiver Terry Wright. None of the players have seen much NFL action, but the Dolphins had signed Carlock, Jones and Wright to futures deals just after last season.

Jones caught 11 passes with the 2018 Lions but has not played since. Davis and Stephens played in three games for the Dolphins last season. Carlock and Wright did not suit up for a game as Dolphins. Originally a Ravens UDFA after seeing his value drop extensively during the 2019 draft, Willis saw action in two games with his hometown team.

Miami holds a league-high 14 picks in next week’s draft. No other team possesses more than 12 selections. Teams also will be signing their next round of UDFA classes, though this unusual offseason may make that a fluid process.

      What? Using those picks would be the smartest move possible. They have plenty of holes and rookie contracts are the most valuable in the league. Trading up for a qb would be a mistake. Giants and lions have zero leverage because only miami and chargers want a qb. Let Los Angeles trade up if they want. Lions and giants don’t wanna go too far back and miss out on an elite prospect. Dolphins are in a great position

        They traded their CB & LT on rookie deals. Its meaningless talk. Vets are cut & dealt with ease through out the league.

      My guess would also be that they don’t end up making 14 picks in the draft. That’s because they’re going to make moves up when they see a player they really want. That’s one huge benefit of having 3 fifths and 3 sevenths. I also think they’d like a pick in the early 4th round. Otherwise, they won’t make a pick after #70 until #141.
