The Miami Dolphins released cornerback DeAndre Presley and signed cornerback Bryan McCann.
The Miami Dolphins released rookie cornerback DeAndre Presley and replaced him with cornerback Bryan McCann, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The move comes on the heels of a dreadful performance from the Miami defense, who gave up 433 yards passing to rookie quarterback Andrew Luck this past Sunday in a 23-20 loss to the Colts.
McCann is a two-year veteran who has spent time in Dallas, Baltimore and Oakland. He has played 21 games since 2010, notching 19 tackles and one interception.
As a member of the Cowboys, McCann was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week back in 2010 after intercepting Eli Manning and returning it 101 yards for a touchdown. The pick-six set a Cowboys record for longest in team history. The following week, McCann won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week thanks to a 97-yard punt return for a touchdown against Detroit.
Presley, a former quarterback in college, was on Miami's practice squad earlier this season before earning a spot on the 53-man roster. The rookie could return to that unit in the near future.
