Roster cuts loom after final preseason game
The Miami Dolphins will host the Tennessee Titans tonight in the final preseason game for both teams tonight in the newly renamed Hard Rock Stadium but don’t expect to see too much of starters who have won their jobs over. One of the positions that are still being scrutinized is the tight end position. Expect to see a lot more possessions to the starting tight ends, Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims who have both dropped their share of passes in the preseason, managing only six catches for 34 yards.
“I’m starting to get a good feel for what he (Cameron) likes,” head coach Adam Gase said Tuesday. “I’ve had a lot of conversations with him over the last couple of weeks as far as, ‘What do we need to do different that I can get you a little bit in a rhythm?’ I feel like we’re kind of starting to hit some of those things.”
“I think they’ll be a little more impactful than what they’ve been,” Gase added.
The team must get down to the NFL mandatory 53 players by 4 PM Saturday afternoon so this final game will mean a lot to some of those still on the bubble. Look for the third TE slot to garner attention with MarQueis Gray, Dominique Jones and Thomas Durate all fighting for the spot. Also look for the final receiver slots to be battled over by Leonte Caroo and Jakeem Grant as well as the backup safety position. Expect to see rookie RB Kenyon Drake to see minutes in his first preseason game.
