The Miami Dolphins are diving into a rebuild, with the first thing being to shed unsavory veteran contracts off the books.

They started that process Thursday by releasing defensive ending Andre Branch and shield Ted Larsen.

The two moves will save you $9.15 million in salary cap space.

Several other big Dolphins names come in danger of being published soon, including Ryan Tannehill, defensive ending Robert Quinn and wide receiver DeVante Parker.

Branch, 2-9, convinced the Dolphins to give him a three-year, $24 million deal in March 20 17 after having a promising 2016 season in which he finished with 5.5 sacks. After only six sacks were totaled by Branch within the last two seasons, it had been a straightforward alternative for to part ways with his $7 million salary for 20-19.

Larsen, 31, made the crucial cube to launching Kenyan Drake into a favorable one off against Rob Gronkowski from the” Miracle” win within the New England Patriots in December.

He had been chiefly a backup shield, but his $2.15 million salary wasn’t from the Dolphins’ plans for 20-19.

Both players receive an early start by finding a new team Wednesday before free agency begins.
