Dolphins waive veteran OT Jason Fox

BY Cameron DaSilva • January 12, 2016

The Miami Dolphins struggled to protect Ryan Tannehill yet again in 2015, surrendering 45 sacks. There isn't one player to blame for the debacle up front, but veteran tackle Jason Fox didn't have a great season. 

He filled in for Ja'Wuan James from Week 9 on, making 11 starts and appearing in 15 games in 2015. The Dolphins clearly weren't pleased with his play as they waived Fox on Tuesday.

Fox had one year remaining on his contract, but the Dolphins likely plan to have James play right tackle in 2016. By cutting Fox, the Dolphins save $1.38 million, giving them more cap space to spend elsewhere -- possibly on another offensive lineman.

Fox has started 16 games in his career and appeared in 37 total since coming into the league with the Detroit Lions in 2010.
