The Miami Dolphins have released DT Ryan Baker, DE Jamaal Westerman, WR B.J. Cunningham, LB Cameron Collins, WR Roberto Wallace, CB Vincent Agnew, CB Quinten Lawrence, CB Kevyn Scott and Gary Guyton.

Footballguys view: Wallace and Cunningham are young receivers that the team hoped would step up after Chad Johnson was released. It looks like Ryan Tannehill is going to struggle to get any kind of quality play from his secondary receivers this year.

New York Jets QB Kellen Clemens (elbow), RB Shonn Greene (rib), DL Mike DeVito (hamstring), LB Bryan Thomas (ankle) and LB Jamaal Westerman (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: If Shonn Greene is good to go he may see some time against the Patriots. The Jets would like to use him as a fourth quarter weapon, but in order for that to come to fruition they need to stay in the game with the Patriots. Greene is not much of a receiver out of the backfield, and would not be a factor if the Jets fell behind in this game.
