MIAMI ( – The Miami Dolphins want to add more pieces to their roster for 2011, but need more salary cap room. So, the Fins have turned to their offensive line for some salary cap relief.

According to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, right tackle Vernon Carey has been asked to take a pay cut. If Carey doesn’t take the pay cut, the Fins have told him he will be released.

The Fins told Carey the reason for the pay cut was so the team could make additional moves, according to the Herald. The additional moves could be in the form of trades or free agent pickups, though most of the best free agents have already chosen other squads.

It’s possible the Dolphins could be clearing cap space to make a run at Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton again, but he won’t come cheap either in draft picks or salary.
