Dolphins cut '09 second-, third-round picks White, Turner wire reports

DAVIE, Fla. -- Quarterback Pat White has been released by the Miami Dolphins one year after they took him in the second round of the draft.

White struggled with his throwing accuracy during a disappointing rookie season in 2009, when he failed to complete any of his five passes in limited duty. The Dolphins kept three quarterbacks -- Chad Henne, Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen.

Also waived was receiver Patrick Turner, a third-round pick in 2009. Miami terminated the contract of tight end David Martin, who missed last season because of a knee injury.

The Dolphins kept two undrafted rookie free agents at receiver, Roberto Wallace and Marlon Moore. John Nalbone beat out Martin for the backup tight end job.

Also failing to make the team's final cut were linebackers J.D. Folsom, Austin Spitler, Erik Walden and Chris McCoy; defensive linemen Ryan Baker, Lionel Dotson and Montavious Stanley; defensive backs Kevin Hobbs, Ross Weaver, Nate Ness and Jonathon Amaya; receiver Julius Pruitt; fullback Rolly Lumbala; and offensive linemen Donald Thomas, Andrew Gardner, Andrew Hartline and Ray Feinga.
