Dolphins waive Cunningham, Westerman

The SportsXchange

Wide receiver Clyde Gates, a fourth-round pick in 2011 who had just two catches as a rookie, has been waived by the Dolphins, according to the Miami Herald.

The Dolphins also released defensive end Jamaal Westerman and sixth-round pick B.J. Cunningham.

Cunningham, a wide receiver from Michigan State, and Westerman were part of the Dolphins' roster cuts ahead of Friday's 9 p.m. ET deadline to reduce rosters to the 53-man regular-season limit.

Westerman joined the Dolphins in March when he wasn't tendered a contract by the New York Jets. The Rutgers product had 19 special-teams tackles for the Jets and 3.5 sacks as a backup outside linebacker.

Teams can also begin forming their practice squad Saturday.
