The Miami Dolphins made a big roster cut on Monday afternoon.

The Dolphins decided to part ways with running back Sony Michel. 

The Dolphins look to be comfortable heading into the 2022 season with a running back room of Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, and Myles Gaskin. 

Michel was originally signed by the Dolphins back in May. He agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.2 million. 

He's a two-time Super Bowl Champion and is coming off a stellar 2021 campaign with the Los Angeles Rams. He compiled 208 carries for 845 yards and a touchdown as he shared the load with Darrell Henderson Jr. 

Before he signed with the Rams, he spent three seasons with the New England Patriots. Of those three seasons, two of them resulted in him rushing for at least 900 yards and six touchdowns. 

It'll only be a matter of time before he's picked up by another team.
