Dolphins Cut Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner Amid Offensive Line Struggles

DAVIE (CBSMiami) – It appears that new Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has seen enough of the team’s subpar offensive line.

Coming right out and blaming the offensive line for the poor play of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Gase has apparently seen enough of several members of the unit.

According to multiple reports, the Dolphins are cutting offensive lineman Billy Turner, Dallas Thomas and Jamil Douglas.

All three were drafted by Miami and have played their entire careers for the Dolphins.

Thomas was a third-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft while Turner was selected in the third round the following year.

Douglas was a fourth round pick in 2015.

Offensive line has been a major issue in Miami for several years, with none suffering more than Tannehill.

Since coming into the league in 2012, no quarterback has been sacked more times than Tannehill.

Turner and Thomas were given several opportunities to thrive in the NFL, each getting chances to start on the Dolphins offensive line.

Turner started 12 games at right guard for Miami in 2015 while Thomas started all 16 games at left guard that season.

The Dolphins are expected to sign veteran Sam Young. He was signed by Miami back in May but was part of the final group of roster cuts following the preseason.
