Finnegan, 31, played just one season with the Dolphins.
He appeared in just 12 games and battled injuries throughout the season.
Finnegan was due to make $5.475 million in 2015 making the decision to cut ties with the veteran an easy one as the Dolphins continue to clear up cap space.
His signature play with Miami came during the team’s international game in London against the Oakland Raiders when he returned a fumble 50 yards for a touchdown.
Miami also cut offensive lineman Nate Garner on Monday.

He appeared in 74 games, including 19 starts at each offensive line position; center, tackle and guard.
Garner, 30, suffered a head injury that caused him to miss the final six games of the 2014 season.
Releasing Garner will save Miami another $1.65 million in cap space.
Finnegan and Garner are the third and fourth players to be released by the Dolphins in the last four days.
Miami cut ties with wide receivers Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson last Friday.
The roster moves save Miami approximately $12.5 million in cap space, which can be used to re-sign current free agents or attract new players to the team.MORE NEWS: Supply Chain Issues: 'There Really Are Problems Everywhere,' Even For Small Companies
