Mark Walton is currently serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s conduct and substance abuse policy. The running back’s suspension stemmed from three offseason arrests.
It appears the former Miami Hurricanes star cannot stay out of trouble.
The Miami Dolphins announced this morning that Walton has been released due to a “police matter.”
“We were made aware earlier this morning of a police matter regarding Mark Walton,” the Dolphins announced. “We hold our players to a high standard and take these matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Walton, 22, was suspended in early November. He released the following statement at the time of the suspension.
“I want to thank the Dolphins for giving me this opportunity and will make the most of this chance as a person and a player when I return,” he said.
Walton had 53 carries for 201 yards this season. He was a fourth-round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2018 NFL Draft.
