Agent: DB Sapp cut by Dolphins

After getting beat on a 99-yard pass, Benny Sapp got bounced by

the Miami Dolphins.

The veteran nickel back was cut Tuesday, according to a tweet by

his agent, Andrew Simms. The move came less than 24 hours after

Sapp gave up the longest play in New England Patriots history on a

pass from Tom Brady to Wes Welker.

Brady threw for a team-record 517 yards and four scores Monday

night to help New England win 38-24.

The departure of Sapp, an eighth-year pro, leaves Nolan Carroll

and rookie Jimmy Wilson as the Dolphins’ backup cornerbacks.

Starters Vontae Davis and Sean Smith were also beaten repeatedly by

the Patriots.
