The Miami Dolphins have made a handful of roster moves that purged somewhat bloated salaries and discarded older veterans this week, allowing the team to get younger. Still, nobody inside the organization is prepared to call this week's roster churning a rebuilding maneuver.
In fact, Tony Sparano said he believes this is the most complete Dolphins roster he's had in his three seasons as coach.
"There's some depth on the defensive side of the ball. There's some depth in the offensive skill positions. There's some depth in the backfield," Sparano said.
Sparano also points out the Dolphins are "pretty solid" at quarterback with Chad Henne, Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen.
Sparano claims the Dolphins cut Jake Grove because they needed a versatile interior linemen more than a backup center for Joe Berger, who won the center competition.
