Miami Dolphins make early roster cuts

August, 23, 2013
MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins made early roster cuts before their fourth preseason game Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Miami released guard Jeff Braun, guard Chandler Burden, defensive tackle Chris Burnette, linebacker Alonzo Highsmith, and receiver Kenny Stafford, the team announced.

None of these players had a legit shot to earn a spot on Miami’s roster. The Dolphins will have to cut down to 75 players next Tuesday. The final cut will be on Aug. 31, when Miami must cut down to its final 53-man roster for the regular season.
