MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Dolphins released defensive end Andre Branch and guard Ted Larsen, part of their effort to pare payroll in advance of free agency next week.
Branch had only 1 1/2 sacks in 14 games last year, his lowest total since his rookie season in 2012. His departure clears $7 million in salary cap space.
Larsen started 13 games in 2018 but struggled on an offense that ranked next to last in the NFL in yards. His release clears $2.15 million in salary cap space.
The moves Thursday left Miami with an estimated $18 million in salary cap space.
