On Saturday, with the NFL’s cut off day for the 2020 regular season, the Miami Dolphins released wide receiver Ricardo Louis and safety Jeremiah Dinson on Tuesday.
The players are Auburn alumni. Dinson is an undisputed crook, and Louis is attempting to make a comeback after injuries that he did not have to miss in the last two seasons.
The Dolphins released Louis for the second time in less than six weeks. Louis signed a one-year, $ 660,000 contract with the Dolphins on July 4, and Miami released Louis on July 25. But after losing two wide receivers, the Dolphins signed Louis on 8 August.
The Cleveland Browns selected Louis in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft and he caught 18 passes for 205 yards, playing in three games as a rookie. Luis also returned nine kickoffs for 164 yards.
In his second NFL season, Lewis started nine games, and he led Brown’s wide receiver in 2017 with 27 receptions for 357 yards. Louis suffered a neck injury during the season that required offshin surgery, putting him off the field in 2018.
Cleveland released Louis on April 1, 2019, and signed a one-year contract with Miami a week later. But on May 16, 2019, the Dolphins placed Louis in the injured reserve after a knee injury at Miami’s offseason event. Louis spent the entire 2019 season on the Dolphins’ IR.
Dawson had been with the Dolphins since August 15, when he was claimed by Miami after the Detroit Lions waived protection. He signed with the Lions on 1 May. Dinson also went unpublished in 2019, leading Auburn with 88 tackles.
NFL teams may have 80 players on their roster at this time, but they will have to come down to 53 from CDT at 3 pm on Saturday afternoon.
The Houston Texans released linebacker Daron Bates on Monday, among other early cuts. Bates is also an Auburn alumnus.
On August 23, Bates joined Texas. He had been out of the NFL since his 2019 season ended in the AFC Championship Game, when he completed a three-year, $ 6 million contract with the Tennessee Titans.
In his seventh NFL season, Bates continued to work as a special teams specialist. Bates played 11 defensive snaps (and three as a fullback) in three games and 291 special-teams plays in 13 regular-season games, and another 66 in three playoff contests. Bates made 10 special teams in 2019.
In 105 regular-season games in his NFL career, Bates has been on the field for 119 defensive snaps and 2,388 special teams plays.
