Dolphins cut K Caleb Sturgis

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

The Dolphins cut veteran kicker Caleb Sturgis and running back Mike Gillislee Saturday.

The Dolphins made 22 roster moves Saturday — they cut 20 players, terminated the contract of quarterback Josh Freeman, and waived/injured wide receiver Christion Jones.

Sturgis, the oft-injured kicker who struggled for two years, was probably the biggest name of the players cut, although his release wasn't a surprise.

The Dolphins will now go with a rookie kicker in Andrew Franks from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a rookie punter in Matt Darr, who attended Tennessee.

Fantasy Impact: 

Sturgis was actually ranked eighth among our kickers this offseason, and was expected to put up fantasy points in what should be an improved Dolphins offense. Frank is now a borderline K1 option in his place.
