Dolphins Depth Chart: David Garrard A Possible Cut?

The Miami Dolphins currently have four quarterbacks on the roster: Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, Pat Devlin and David Garrard. As the team heads into the regular season, it's possible they could retain all four, but it seems unlikely at this point.

As a result, a cut will have to be made: According to a Miami Herald report, Garrard may be the odd-man out, especially considering the Dolphins' salary cap situation:

That brings us to Moore and Garrard. Keeping both is a salary cap luxury. Moore is scheduled to make $2.25 million in base salary this year. Garrard is scheduled to make $2.75 million in base salary. Cutting or trading one would make sense. The Dolphins would lower the price they're paying for backup quarterbacks, which now promises to be at a relatively expensive $6.5 million in salary cap space for both players.
