In a surprising move, the Miami Dolphins released Cornerback Benny Sapp earlier today. Sapp was burned more than a few times in the Dolphins loss Monday Night to the Patriots.
The move is surprising for a few reasons; First, the Dolphins secondary looked terrible Monday Night and there hasn’t been any talk about who will take Sapp’s place in the Dolphins secondary.
Second, Sapp outplayed Will Allen in the preseason. He actually looked really good in the preseason for the Dolphins.
Third, Sapp was on the week one roster which means his $1.9 mil contract is guaranteed. So the Dolphins will be paying Sapp to sit at home. Heck, I could do that for $1.9 mil!
I’d expect to hear about the Dolphins plans to replace Sapp by tomorrow. If I’m Will Allen, I’m waiting for the Dolphins to call and I’d probably try to milk every dime out of them….because they need him.
