The releasings of McKinney and Skura had been reported on Monday. As for Griffin, he reportedly has a high chance of landing on the team’s practice squad.

The Dolphins’ regular-season opener is on Sept. 12 against the New England Patriots, so there is time for more moves to be made, should that be something the team wants.

It will surely be interesting to see if the Dolphins make any more changes to the roster.

Miami will be hoping that it can build on its 10-6 record from last season and make it back to the playoffs for the first time since the 2016 season.
