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.
