Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Miami Dolphins have informed starting safety Bobby McCain that they are going to release him. This move opens up in the neighborhood of $6 million in salary-cap space. With the Dolphins drafting Jevon Holland on Friday of last week this news isn’t surprising. The Dolphins have also brought in free agent safety Malik Hooker in recent days for a visit as well. The Dolphins have a salary cap issue and this move isn’t made because of McCain’s ability and play on the field but because of his salary cap number.
