  • Doug Middleton: Let go by Miami

    The Dolphins cut Middleton on Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Middleton only suited up for one game with the Dolphins and didn't post a tackle. Over 12 NFL games, Middleton has made 33 tackles and four pass breakups.

  • Dolphins' Doug Middleton: Signs with Miami

    Middleton signed a contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    The Dolphins are bringing in Middleton after they traded Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers on Monday. Middleton started three games for the Jets last season, but he saw his reps drop severely when he suffered multiple injuries, including a season-ending pectoral tear. The 25-year-old will have a chance to rejuvenate his career, as he should have a chance to earn a starting job if he can stay healthy.

  • Jets' Doug Middleton: Filling in with first-team defense

    Middleton is getting reps with the first-team defense during OTAs, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    It sounds like Middleton is healthy after spending the final nine games of the 2018 season on injured reserve with a torn pectoral. He's only getting first-team reps due to the limitations of Marcus Maye (shoulder), but it's nonetheless a sign of Middleton's standing as a top depth option in advance of the 2019 campaign. The fourth-year safety racked up 27 tackles and three pass breakups in seven games with the Jets in 2018.

  • Jets' Doug Middleton: Tears pectoral Sunday

    Middleton tore his pectoral muscle in Week 7 against the Vikings and is out for the season, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Middleton tore his pectoral muscle last year, resulting in season-ending injured reserve. This year's injury is to the opposite muscle. He'll likely revert to IR in the coming days, meaning the Jets are down to just two healthy safeties.
