Mormino cut

I'm a bit surprised by this move, but the Dolphins have waived G Drew Mormino because he failed his physical.

The move is surprising because Mormino was challenging Rex Hadnot for the starting job in camp last year until he went down with a shoulder injury that cost him the season. I thought he could have challenged for the open guard spot again this season, and at the very least serve as a versatile backup who can play both guard and center.

Maybe he's not completely healed, but there's still plenty of time before training camp begins. Mormino is young, which is an obvious plus for Parcells and Ireland, and he's versatile so cutting him seems like a strange decision.
